Year 5 - Kestrels

Welcome to Year 5 and Kestrels! 

Year 5 is taught by Mr Wootton and Mrs Thwaites. Mrs Goddard and Miss Adcock are our Teaching Partners.

The children in Year 5 are now in upper Key Stage 2 and the increased expectations reflect this. In a supportive and caring environment the children are challenged to continue to build on their learning skills, knowledge and understanding so they can truly succeed in their learning and achieve well in Year 6. 

 Our current theme is historical and called 'Medieval Tewkesbury'.  

Medieval Tewkesbury - Activity ideas

All of the activities for each day of maths during lockdown are saved below: Each activity has a matching teaching video here: which will help complete each lesson. 

Weekly Musts for Kestrels:

  • Times Tables are precised weekly using Times Table Rockstars Please use this at home to practise even more. 
  • Spelling homework - this is set on a Friday and tested the following Friday. 
  • Reading books and reading records should be in school every day.

There are no statutory assessments carried out at the end of Year 5, however teacher assessments are used to make judgements about how well your child is performing in reading, writing, maths, science, speaking and listening and spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout the year.
Here is a video which gives details of the type of national formal assessments which take place in May when pupils are in Year 6.
