Welcome everyone to Year 5's page containing all the information you may need about our PE days, homework, reading and current topics


Spring Term

This term we will be starting the Year 2024 in style and continue to expand our knowledge of the world. Our school principles of Ready, Respectful and Safe are at the heart of our life in Year 5.



Monday - Our PE will be on a Monday afternoon. Don't forget your kits!



Friday – Reading records are to be handed in to check that home reading has been completed (3x a week)

Friday – Spelling tests will happen on a Friday, and new spellings will be handed out the same day.

Each half term the children will also be given a ‘Home Learning Project’. This is a variety of activities that relate to the current topic.


Remember, we are here to help and there is no problem too small!

In History, we will be learning about the Victorians and the impact of Queen Victoria's reign on our local area of Birkenhead.

Rainy Day activities!
Good morning Year 5
Here are some rainy day activities for you to try.
1. TTRS - I have set a competition between the class to see who can score the most throughout the day
2. Research the Victorian era. You can present this in any form (using google slides, creating a poster)
3. Complete the countdown challenge below - Remember you can only use each number once but you can use any of the four operations (add, subtract, multiply, divide)
4. Research a famous building or place in Birkenhead, explaining how or why it has become famous.
