Welcome to Year 5!
Miss Bartlett is the class teacher and Mrs Watson is the teaching assistant for our class. On this page, you will find information about Year 5, news, photographs of things we have done in class and more.
Arrival and Collection Times
Children should use the one-way system to enter and exit school in September, entering and leaving via their external classroom door.
Children in Year R, 2 and 4 are expected to arrive between 8.45am-8.55am and be collected between 3.15pm and 3.25pm
Children in Year 1,3, 5 and 6 are expected to arrive between 8.50am-9.00am and be collected between 3.20pm and 3.30pm.
Where siblings are in classes with different arrival and collection times, they should arrive at 8.50am and be collected at 3.20pm.
Breakfast Club & After School Club - Children in Year R, 1 to 6 should arrive as normal and be taken to Breakfast Club room. They will be taken to their Classroom ready for lessons. Breakfast Club will be open from 7.45am. After School Club will be open until 5.45pm.
Stationery – It would be great if you could provide your child with a pencil case containing the following equipment: a ruler, glue stick, HB pencil and pencil sharpener, a fibre tipped writing pen (if you child has their handwriting licence), a set of colouring pencils, two different coloured highlighter pens, a purple biro and a green biro. It would be extremely helpful if the pencil case was relatively small as space on tables and in trays is limited. We will provide this equipment where required.
P.E.- Children in Class 5 will need their P.E. kits on Mondays and Wednesdays. P.E. kits should consist of jogging bottoms, shorts, a house-cloloured t-shirt, jumper and trainers.
Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags.
In Year 5, children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 5.

As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school. To find out more, visit https://mathsnoproblem.com/en/parent-videos/ to watch parent videos all about how we teach Maths at St Luke's. The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 5. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem Textbook A and B and Workbook A and B for your year group for use at home and also find out more about how Maths is taught in school, these are available to order at http://www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk/mathematics/primary-key-stage1-and-key-stage-2/maths-no-problem.html
We ask all parents to support children with learning their number bonds and times tables at home; this is key to children being successful as Mathematicians.
