Coalway Junior School

Year 5, Classes 5 & 6

Welcome to Year 5!


The Year 5 team are Mrs Geer, Mr Scrivins, Miss Henderson, Mrs Ball and Mrs Mason. We have an exciting year planned and are starting off looking at the Kingdom of Benin in History.


Weekly Homework Tasks

  • You must read at least 3 times each week to an adult at home. Each time you read, you must get your reading record signed by an adult. Please bring this into school every Monday to be checked. Each week we ask that you complete an activity in your reading record from the Reading tasks set for you.
  • Remember to complete your My Maths homework. This will help you to practise what we have been learning in class.
  • Try and use Lexia at least once a week. Lexia is fantastic for helping with reading and comprehension skills.
  • We want to be super spellers! You need to use Spelling Shed at least 3 times each week. This will help you to understand the Year 5 spelling patterns as well as practice spelling rules from your previous years.


Your PE t-shirts should be in your house colour and clothes with logos and stripes should not be worn. You will need to bring your indoor PE kit and leave it in your locker to change into for the lesson. Our indoor PE lesson will take place on a Wednesday afternoon. Every Friday, you will need to wear your outdoor PE kit to school so you are dressed ready for the lesson. Please make sure you are wearing warmer PE kit (jogging bottoms and sweatshirt) during the colder months.
