"Safeguarding is a stength of the school" - OFSTED

Year 5

Year 5 is a busy year, consolidating and building on the learning from the first two years in the Juniors and preparing the children for Year 6. As in other year groups, children will be given work, books and materials appropriate to their individual needs and the opportunity to work at a pace that best suits them.

SATS & End of Year Assessments
There are SATS tests in English and Maths. The statutory SATS take place in Year 2 and Year 6 and these results are reported to the government. In Year 3 – 5 the children complete the optional SATS and these results, along with teacher assessments throughout the year inform the final judgement. In Year 1, the children complete a statutory phonics screening test in June and are assessed in Reading, Writing and Maths through teacher assessment.
As you can see, we have a packed curriculum. In order to meet all the requirements of the National Curriculum, homework plays a vital part in our year. The children will need a quiet place to complete their work, away from distractions. All homework will be written down in their homework diaries.
If the children need support with their homework it is important that we all support them with it. The children should ALWAYS attempt homework by themselves but should they be struggling or becoming confused please do help them with it. Once again, if there are any problems, please let me know.

Children should be reading every night. Please remember to date and sign the Reading Record each time your child reads.
