Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Mr McLean is the class teacher and Ms Somaraki is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class Five, news, pictures of things we've done and more. 


Stationery – In order to minimise multiple use of equipment, 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 Monday and Tuesday and in line with our Covid-19 Risk Assessment, in order to reduce increased congestion when changing, children are invited to come to school on those days in their P.E. Kit. P.E. kits should consist of jogging bottoms, shorts, a house-cloloured t-shirt, jumper and trainers.

During the year, we will use a range of texts to develop our reading skills and read stories written by a range of authors. The texts we will use are detailed in the document below.

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.


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 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 

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.
