Welcome to Year 5 at primary school!
In schools in England, Year 5 is for children 9–10 years old, and is the third year of Key Stage 2. Children will be encouraged to take on more responsibility and become more independent.
Although there is no statuatory test at the end of Year 5, your child’s teacher will assess your child throughout the year to make sure that they’re at the expected level in English and maths. There is an emphasis on grammar as new concepts like fronted adverbials are introduced.
