Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 section of the St Ignatius’ website. In this section of the website we aim to include details that may be useful to parents of Year 5 children, such as homework, help videos, spellings and details of Year 5 routines. We will also showcase a selection of the fantastic work that our talented children have produced.

We believe that the best outcomes for your child are achieved by taking a collaborative approach to their learning; therefore if you need to contact us then please do so before or after school.  We look forward to working with you to ensure that your child’s learning journey is a positive one.

Useful Information

We have P.E. on Tuesday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has a white t-shirt, shorts and suitable footwear (pumps or trainers) in school ready for these lessons.

Please visit the school blog to keep up to date on what we have been doing.

Spellings are handed out on Fridays and a spelling test is given the following Friday.

Reading books are changed regularly and children are expected to read at home on a daily basis. Please discuss the book your child is reading with them and check that they understand what they are reading.

Any other homework is placed on Showbie and your child can send it directly to Mrs Pugh.

Thank you for all your support,

Mrs Pugh and Mrs Morris

Online Safety

If our Year 5 ‘bubble’ is closed at any point, children may go online more frequently.  Parents, please familiarise yourself and your children with some basic online safety rules which will help everyone enjoy their time online:


Isolating and Home Learning

Should we be required to isolate due to COVID-19 this year, we will put work onto the Showbie website.  Parents and carers will be sent more information about this at the time of any isolation.
