Welcome to

Whissendine CE Primary School

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


We have a very exciting year planned - I hope you are all ready for Year 5!


This page will contain knowledge organisers, termly plans and any homework for your reference.




Topic Homework-  This will be set at the beginning of term and due in for the final week, it will link to the wider curriculum learning for that term. It is great to see the different, creative ways the children choose to represent their learning. 


Maths Homework - This is set on a Tuesday and is due in the following Monday. It will relate to our learning in class and is designed to give children an extra chance to practise, with the aim that it helps them to remember!


Minute Test Homework - The minute challenge is designed to test children's times tables fluency. A copy will be given out each Friday and they will be tested on these the following week. Their minute challenge will match the times tables they are set on TTRockstars, so this is a great way to practise. 


Spellings Homework- Two week programme:

Week 1: On Monday, the new spelling rule will be taught and given to the children to practice; they will be tested on Friday with 10 spellings following that rule, some of which they will have been given, some they will not have seen.

Week 2: On Monday, the same spelling rule will be taught again and tested out of 15 spellings that Friday; the majority of the words may be not ones the children have seen.


There are also 'High Frequency words' on the bottom of the sheet. These are words that do not follow one of our rules but are useful for the children in their written work. 



Please could the children come to school in their P.E kit on days they have P.E lessons. P.E will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday.


Please feel free to message me on Dojo if you have any questions or concerns.


Many thanks,

Mr Cosgrove
