In Year 5 we have two classes - Grey Seals and Red Squirrels.

In Year 5 Grey Seals the class teacher is Miss Marshall and Mrs Franks. The teaching assistants are Mrs Hodkinson and Mr Carroll-Armstrong.

In Year 5 Red Squirrels the class teacher is Miss El-Ghaly.

Both classes are made up of children who are aged between 9 and 10 years old. The children follow the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 which builds upon the children’s learning and experiences in Key Stage 1.

Please look at the relevant pages on our website for more details!

In Year 5 we expect:

  • Reading books in reading bags to be brought in every day.
  • Children need to be heard read at home and talked to about what they have read.
  • Reading record to be signed and please make a simple comment to share how your child has read.
  • A charge of £5 for lost/damaged reading books.
  • We encourage our children to be independent, therefore we ask parents to remain outside the building at the start and end of the day.
  • Home learning to be completed on a regular basis.
  • Spellings to be practised.
  • P.E. kit to be in school on P.E. days which are Tuesday and Friday (click here to see what the correct P.E. kit should be).

Topics we cover are:

Our yearly overview on the right details everything that we learn throughout the year.

Each half term parents are sent a newsletter informing them about the different subjects and content that will be taught during the half term.



We ask that reading books are brought in every day so that if your child needs to change their book then they can do so. We encourage all our children to read a range of different texts at home as well as their school reading book, this might include things like the newspaper, comics and graphic novels. We want all our children to develop a love for reading.


We expect children to read daily with adults at home. Spellings will be given out weekly and children will have a weekly test. Children in Year 5 are also expected to do 10 minutes of Times Tables Rock Stars every day. Sometimes homework may also focus on a current area of study - we may for instance ask the children to create a model or design a poster around their latest topic etc.


P.E. Kits

Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E. kit in school. All kit should be named and kept in a labelled bag to be left in school. It is advised that the children keep their P.E. bags in school for the duration of the half term, as occasionally your child may use it as spare clothes when an accident has occurred.

We like to encourage physical fitness here at Primrose Hill. Every day we take part in a DAILY MILE run using our excellent outside facilities!


Children have access to a small bottle of milk during the morning session. Children are also allowed to bring in a piece of fruit to eat at this time. Throughout the day children have a water bottle labelled with their name which they have access to throughout the day.

If you would like to discuss anything further or have any questions regarding what is being covered in Year 5 then please contact the office or send a message through ClassDojo to make an appointment with the class teacher.
