Hi my daughter is five half and nearly every night she wee the bed we tried loads of stuff but she still does. We don't know what else to try it

Put her in a pull up and let her be. She will get it when her body is ready to either sleep through the night holding her bladder or wakes her up to pee.

Every child is different. Some can sleep through the night and stay dry as young as 2ish. Some can't do it til 12ish. Either end of the spectrum is perfectly acceptable.

I asked my girls ped about this (out of curiosity... not worry) when they were 4 and he said he doesn't even begin to worry or treat bedwetting until the child is 8. The last wet bed they had... they were 8.5. My son, on the other hand has been fully potty trained for a year (3.75 years now) and has only ever had one wet bed so far.

I have a son who is 5 and most nights he wakes up with a full diaper. Some kids don't get out of it until they are 8 or 9 years old.

She's just not ready to be dry for that long yet. As Teresa said, put her in a pull up and leave it be for now. If she is still having problems by the time she is around 7, it is worth taking her for a check up to ensure it is nothing medical, but otherwise, it will work itself out with time. Most children outgrow it by the onset of puberty.
