Year 5 – Hawks


Welcome to Hawks Class!


Teacher - Mrs Cholerton


Teaching Assistant - Mr Eaton


Year 5 is a year to embed all of the knowledge learnt in lower Key Stage 2; a year to start the preparations for transition to secondary school.  Increasingly, children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning: to do their homework, to pack their school bag, to remember their PE kits. As a result, they develop and grow. It is about encouraging independence in preparation for bigger things to come.


The children learn to work as a team, learn from each other, become independent thinkers and learn from their mistakes; enabling confident young learners for life.   



Children are encouraged to read for pleasure, at least 3 times a week.  Reading for pleasure encompasses a wide range of genres of both fiction and non-fiction.  Children are required to have a deep understanding of what they have read as well as being able to decode the text.  To aid your child, please question their reading.  


Homework. Weekly homework of maths, grammar and punctuation and spellings is set.
