Welcome to Year 5!

Our class teacher is Miss Clarke. 

Please do contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your child's education.

 

Here is our curriculum map for the Autumn Term.

Here is our curriculum map for the Spring Term.

 

Homework

  • Reading: 20-25 minutes independent reading daily to be recorded in the Homework Reading folder on Showbie. Once they have finished their book, children should write a review to include the title and author, the plot and what they liked or disliked about the book.  These can be a voice note or text note in the same Showbie folder.  
  • Times tables: to be practised daily for ten minutes using TT Rockstars or an alternative method.
  • Spellings: to be practised using Spelling Shed for a weekly test on Friday 

Please do get in touch if you are unable to access any of these online platforms.

 

Reading

We strive to foster a love of books through all of our lessons and in the reading books chosen by the children.  Children will have the opportunity to read for pleasure in school every day so they will always need to have a book with them.  Children are welcome to bring a book from home or to choose from our class library.

 

Reading raffle

Children who read on four or more occasions at home will be entered into a weekly draw to win an exciting prize, as long as their reading has been recorded in Showbie.  The reading week will run from Saturday to Friday and the draw will be on Monday.

 

Times tables

Children will be revisiting all of the times tables in Year 5 in order to increase fluency.

 

PE

PE will take place outdoors on Monday and Friday afternoons.  Children will need to have their PE kit in school at all times.  All earrings must be removed before school on these days, unless your child can remove their own earrings, and hair must be tied up.

 

Outdoor Day

Tuesday is our outdoor day and we will spend the majority of the day learning outside whatever the weather.  Children are to come to school in clothing and footwear suitable for outdoor learning and must bring a waterproof coat.  Please ensure that coats, jumpers and hoodies are named so they can be easily returned.
