Davington Primary School

Faversham, Kent

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Miss Beard, Miss Geddes together with Mrs Tabor, Mrs Scamp and Mrs Clarke welcome you and your children to Year 5.  We are looking forward to a successful year, full of hard work and enjoyable learning. The term has started well with the children enjoying being reunited with their friends after the summer break.



Topics for the Term

We have attached a topic map which gives an overview of the topics that will be covered during terms 1 and 2.






Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school every day.

We will be doing outdoor PE for as long as the weather allows on a Tuesday.

5B’s indoor PE will be on a Wednesday.

5G’s indoor PE will be on a Monday.

Please ensure children with shoulder length hair or longer have their hair tied back. If your child has pierced ears, their earrings will need to be removed for these sessions. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in a suitable bag and labelled clearly with their full name and class.


We will be setting weekly homework for the children to complete based on their current learning. Spellings will be set on a Monday and they will be tested on a Friday. For any other subjects, homework will be set on a Wednesday, due in on the Friday, unless stated otherwise. Homework projects will be shared and celebrated in the classroom.

Weekly Reading (10 minutes, at least three times a week)

To support your child in reading you can listen to them read or ask them questions about their book to help them with their understanding of what they have read. Please make sure you date and sign in their reading record book. When they have finished a book they can log on to Accelerated Reader to complete a book quiz, their log in details are in the front of their reading records.

Times Tables

Keep encouraging your child to practise their times tables. TT rockstars is a great website for them to be able to practice independently, their log in details for this are also in their reading records.


It is important that children drink plenty of water throughout the day. In order to do this, children need a named water bottle that they can use. Please make sure this does not leak and has a ‘sports top’ lid. No squash please. 

Break Time Snacks

If they wish to do so, the children may bring their own fruit which can be kept in their bag until break time.

Arriving at school

We have an ‘open door’ policy and are always ready to discuss any urgent problems with you in the morning when you bring your child to school.  However, if you want to have a longer chat about your child, please could you make an appointment through the office and we will call you at an agreed time after school – thank you.
