Year 5

Welcome to Year 5. The children in year 5 are taught by Mrs Olley and supported by Mrs Green. Year 5 English is taught by Miss Wragg between 11.00-12.00 each day and Maths every Friday morning.


Activities are planned so that the children enjoy a rich and diverse curriculum with a vast range of activities which are carefully tailored to children's needs and interests. 


P.E. lessons will take place on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure the children have their  P.E. kit and trainers on those days, ensuring all clothing items are clearly named. The children will engage in a range of activities throughout the year including invasion games, athletics, gymnastics and dance. Year 4, 5 and 6 will be going swimming on a Thursday morning.


We have worship every day. This is led by Mrs Hutchins, Reverend Gary, staff from school or sometimes our worship team. This is a lovely time for us all to sing, pray, learn about our Christian values, local and global events and to share ideas and have time to reflect. Sometimes worship is in the hall with the whole school or sometimes it is in our class groups. We say a prayer at lunch time and at the end of the school day. 


We love reading at Cockerham School. We cannot emphasise enough the importance of sharing books together.  The children will bring a reading book home. The expectation is to read at least 3 times a week in order to develop their fluency and comprehension skills. Maths and English homework is sent home every Friday. This should be returned by the following Friday. Spellings will also be given out and tested every Friday. 


If you have any concerns or questions throughout the year, please feel free to contact me.






On a Friday, the children will come home with a piece of Maths homework linked to the topic that they have been working on that week in class. The children will also have an English reading comprehension task (online and one per week) to complete with additional reading comprehension available on Read Theory. These can be completed independently but please discuss your child's work with them showing them where they have been successful and looking through any misunderstandings. Children will have a weekly set of spellings to learn using a range of strategies in the homework section.
