In Year we,
…are ready to LEARN
…are SAFE
…RESPECT everybody and everything.

I am very excited to welcome all the children into Year 5!

We will have Maths and English every day and homework will be set based on the work they have been completing during the week. In addition to English and Maths homework, the children will also receive a weekly spelling list and times tables revision. Please support your child by ensuring that they have a quiet area to complete their work and it is done at a time when they are feeling fresh. If there is a problem with the homework, please do not hesitate to contact me for guidance.

It is really important that your child continues to read to an adult at home for at least 10 minutes every day & that this is recorded in their reading records. Although your child may be free-reader, having the opportunity to discuss what they have read will really support your child’s comprehension & inference skills and deepen their understanding of language. We have found that engaging with children about their books nurtures a love of reading which has many positive effects on their written & spoken language.

Our first topic of the term is World War 2, where children will be learning about key events that happened during this time. Other topics we will be covering throughout the year are North America and Anglo-Saxons. Within these topics there will be plenty of opportunities for children to be creative and produce some fantastic pieces of work.

Finally, Year 5 will have TWO PE lessons a week – Monday & Thursday.  Please support them in remembering their kit for every lesson. Children MUST bring their PE kits into school on a Monday and take home on a Friday.

We look forward to sharing your child’s successes with you this year, of which we are sure there’ll be many!
