Welcome to Year 5! Our teacher is Mrs Cox and our teaching assistant is Mrs George. On this page you will find out everything you need to know about our class and what we have been up to at St Martin's. 



Each week there will be spellings sent home. The children will need to learn these for a spelling test as well as writing sentences using some of these words. They need to make the sentences interesting. Reading needs to be done every day as it is so important to help with all areas of the curriculum. The children need to record what they have read each day and the page numbers. This can then be signed by an adult. These will be checked each day by Mrs Cox or Mrs George. Times tables will also be set each week.  Other homework related to the curriculum will be sent home as applicable.  This could include English, Topic or Maths. Homework will be sent home Friday and due in Wednesday unless stated otherwise. Attached are last week and this week's homework. Sometimes, during holidays or as part of homework, work may be set on Purple Mash as well. 


This half term we are learning about the Slums. The Knowledge Organiser is attached as well as a topic web for other subjects.. Throughout the year the children are encouraged to read a range of books. There is a reading list attached to give some guidance but it is not essential that everything is read on this list. This is just a guide. 

Meet The Teacher Presentation

This is the presentation as discussed earlier in the year for reference.

We are now starting to learn the songs for our Carol Concert in Sonning. Here are the words for the songs we are currently learning. The children need to learn these words off by heart so they are not holding pieces of paper in church. Please help them practise at home. We look forward to see you all on Wednesday the 18th at 6pm. 


Thank you for supporting with the reading. I can see a real difference, diaries in every day and all the children are reading. 

Snow Day and Closure Work

In the event of a snow day here are some activities that could keep you busy. They are lots of fun! There is also a document here in the event of school closure with work to do. 


These are some pictures of us learning and some of the pieces we have learnt. We are looking forward to our concert with you near the end of term.
