Recommended Reading for Year 5
Pie Corbett's Reading Spine
We expect children to read at home at least three times a week. We encourage children to read books, comics, newspapers, magazines, recipes, manuals, play scripts, song lyrics, poetry, websites and even books they write themselves.
Below is a list of recommended books for your child’s age group. Some of these books are ideal for adults to read to your children and others would be great for children to read themselves. For more information about each of these books, click on:

Spellings - Common Exception Words
The expectation for the attainment of children in Year 5 has grown massively. In writing, children are expected to spell high frequency words, or common exception words (words we can't use our sounds to spell) correctly. Below is a list of all the words they should be spelling correctly in their independent writing. We will be sending home lists with a range of these spellings on for them to practise ready for their fortnightly test.
