Whitmore Park Primary School Bobby

Year 5


There are three Year 5 classes. Every morning, children have a Literacy, Mathematics and Reading lesson.

In the afternoons, children are taught History, and Geography, through the Connected Curriculum. Also, they have one session a week of Science, RE and PSHE. On Monday morning the children take part in a carousel which involves music, art and PE.

Children are given weekly homework on Monday, involving a Literacy task and maths task linked with the work from the previous week, and it needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday.

We also expect children to read regularly at home. All children are heard read at least once a week by the class teacher and target children are listened to more frequently.

On a carousel day pupils will spend half the day doing art, PE and music. Each class also has an additional class PE slot. The class teacher will inform you of this.

On these days please send children to school in a PE kit. Children will be asked to tie long hair back and remove all jewellery for PE lessons.

Carousel day for Year 5: Monday


Parents will be informed about details of any school trips throughout the year.


Each Monday there will be a piece of literacy and maths homework, maths targets to practise and spellings to learn. We ask for the homework folders to be returned to school by the following Monday. Children will be tested each week on their Maths targets.

Curriculum information

The subject areas covered are detailed in the curriculum letter sent to all parents which can be found by clicking here.

Other Information

Year 5 children need to bring their reading books and diaries every day, please ensure reading diaries are kept up to date when they read at home.

All money needs to be sent in with your child in the morning in a clearly labelled envelope with their name, class, the amount of money and what it is for. Dinner money needs to be paid at the beginning of each week.

If you have a problem and would like to speak to your child’s teacher, feel free to speak to them before or after school. If a teacher is not free to talk at that time, they will arrange a different time with you. If you are unable to arrange this personally with the class teacher, please contact the office and we will get back to you ASAP.
