Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


PE days

PE for Year 5 classes is on Wednesday.

Please make sure that your child wears their active uniform on this day so that they can fully take part in their PE lessons.


Daily Focused Reading (DFR)

Children in Key stage 2 are taught reading through Daily Focused Reading or DFR. This approach allows teachers to explicitly teach particular content domains in depth and ensure understanding. We use a range of quality texts to explore a range of genres and types of literature. DFR is delivered though a daily lesson.


Homework and reading books

Reading books are changed on the following days:

5Red: every other Monday

5Blue: every other Thursday

5Yellow: every other Tuesday


Homework and spellings are given out every Friday and children should return them by the following Friday.

DFR homework is given out on a Friday and it should be returned the following Monday for use in the DFR lesson.
