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, 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.

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.
