Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 - Willow


Our Year 5 Team consists of Mrs Kirby and Mrs Kasprzyk in Willow class.


Mrs Kirby

I am the Year 5 teacher at Little Heath and have been part of the Little Heath family for nearly 22 years . I feel very lucky getting to work with so many wonderful children every day.


Mrs Kasprzyk

Hi, I'm Kasprzyk. I am the teaching assistant in Willow class.


Mr Ward

Hi, I am Mr Ward. I am a PPA Teacher here at Little Heath and Music Subject Leader. I cover a range of subjects and particularly enjoy PE, music and art lessons. This year I will be delivering music lessons across the school. As well as music theory and appreciation, I will be teaching a range of instruments to all year groups.



P.E. Days:

All children need their PE kit in school on a Monday and Thursday. Our PE kit is plain t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and black pumps.                                                      



Work is set by the teacher on a Friday and is to be returned the following Wednesday. All children are expected to read at home as often as they can and rehearse their times tables on times tables rockstar. Their creative homework task is set at the start of the term and teachers will set a date for this to be returned. Children chose from a variety of tasks linked to their learning that term.


Reading Books:

The children will choose a library book on a weekly basis. The children visit the library on a Friday and will need to return the book they have and they can then choose another book.


  • To be able to read quickly and accurately with a great understanding of the words and language used
  • To know the school values and show them consistently all around school to everyone
  • To attend school as much as possible
  • To use and be able to explain the important language in all subjects both when speaking and in our writing









Throughout the year the teacher uses teacher assessments to judge where the children are against National Curriculum objectives. Children may sit a more formal test to support the teacher judgements at different times in the year.

Oxford Owl is recommended for maths games and to access reading books of all levels -  Children have been given the pass code. Century Tech and Times Table Rock Stars can be used for times table practise and children have all been given logins.
