Medway Class Year 5


Welcome to Medway Class!


We hope you are looking forward to an exciting year ahead in Medway Class!


Our topic this term is:

Turning Points


We will continue to work hard on developing the children’s Literacy and Numeracy skills. Please try to make sure your child reads on a regular basis at home, sharing the experience whenever you can. ‘Reading Records’ will be sent home for you to make three comments about their reading at home. We also expect your child to make three comments of their own and the books will be collected in every Monday.

It is also of great importance that the children learn their weekly spellings and times tables at home too. These will be handed out on a Wednesday (in their green spelling books) and tested during the following week.

Below are some important points to remember to ensure a happy and productive first term in Year 5!


Top tips for Year 5:

  • Always be smart and punctual
  • Label your PE kit and school uniform
  • Listen carefully and be kind to others
  • Learn your spellings and be able to apply them
  • Listen carefully and be kind to others
  • Learn your spellings and times tables
  • Enjoy your learning journey
  • Always try your best
  • Become the best you can be!


Your child will need a named PE kit (white t-shirt and blue shorts) every Tuesday and Friday. They will also need trainers and suitable clothing for outdoor games.

A club timetable has bene sent home. If your child is going to attend a club, then please remember to complete the paperwork online. We look forward to seeing your children participating in some of the extra-curricular activities that are available to them.
