We will be updating this section soon.
Welcome to our Year 5
Welcome to our Year 5 page. There is much to look forward to across the next three terms and we aim to keep you updated throughout the year. Please check back regularly for updates and photos.
Our P.E. days this term are Tuesday and Thursday. Please could you ensure that children come to school wearing their PE kit and all clothing should be clearly named to avoid anything getting lost. When the weather is cold, the children should come in tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts.
This first term, we also have an extra P.E. lesson on a Friday, the children will need to come in their PE kits on that day.
Swimming is starting in Autumn 2. Look out for more details.
Homework is an important part of the learning process, and we appreciate the time that you spend prompting and assisting your child with their homework. As you are aware, our homework policy has been updated.
In year 5, children should read for 30 minutes every day and record this in their Home-School diaries. Their reading diaries will be checked every week by their teacher. They are also expected to practice their weekly spellings (recorded in spelling homework books due in on Thursdays).
In addition, they may also practise on spelling shed. Also, year 5 pupils need to practise their times tables every evening for 10 minutes (Times Tables Rockstars). We would encourage children to access RM Easimaths at home as this will support their mathematical understanding.
Each half term, we will set a creative homework. Please see our termly newsletter for details of this.
Home-School diaries will be checked weekly on Mondays.
At the end of the day
All children need to be collected by an adult from outside the classroom, unless attending Clubland. If your child is being collected by a different adult or going home with another child, please inform the office in writing via a letter or email as we will not let your child go unless we or the office have been notified.
If you have any concerns, please come in and see us at the end of the day or contact the office to arrange a time to speak with us.
