Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page.
We hope your child is going to have a wonderful year this year.
In Year 5, we aim to create an exciting and challenging environment where your child feels safe and motivated to learn. We have high expectations and a desire to see each child reach their full potential. We look forward to working with yourselves to do this.
Children should have their reading book in school every day, as they may be asked to read with a member of staff (yes, even in year 6!). As soon as they have finished their reading book, they should hand it in at school (there is a box for finished books to be put) and it will be changed on the same day – there is not a set day for the book to be handed in. Reading with your child is really important, this includes listening to your child read, discussing what they have read to check understanding of the text and thinking about what might happen next in the story (if it’s fiction). Talk about the characters with your child and their feelings during different parts of the story.
Homework is just as important as the work we do in school and consolidates what we do during the week. It will be given out on a Monday and could be either Maths or English, to be returned by the following Monday. It is vital that homework is returned on Monday and is completed to the same high standard we expect in school.
Spellings will be sent home each week. Please support your child to learn them. They will be tested weekly.
Please ensure your child has a P.E. kit in school that consists of shorts, a T -shirt and pumps. The main PE activity this year will be on a Thursday.
