Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Class Teacher: Mr Cockburn

Other Y5 Staff: Mrs Barker, Mrs Wingate, Mrs Hughes


Our PE days this year are Thursdays and Fridays, so please come to school in your school PE kit on those days.


Reading at home

Don't forget that your homework is to read at home at least three times per week. If you read 4 or more times, then you will receive a sticker for your Regular Reader Chart. Wouldn't it be great if we could get everybody to Gold this year? Let Mr Cockburn know if you have any brilliant books that you would like to recommend to the rest of the class!



Everyone in Year 5 has a Mathletics login. See Mr Cockburn if you are not sure what yours is. If you can achieve 1000 points in a week, you will earn a bronze certificate. Build up your certificates to earn silver and gold certificates - if you earn a gold, you also get to pick a special prize from our school prize box!


You can also earn a prize and a special Gold Bar Star Award by achieving a gold bar on all the Year 5 activities.
