Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page!
Year 5 is an extremely important and exciting year for your child. The focus in Upper Key Stage Two, is on helping pupils to become more independent, more organised and ready for the next stage in their education.
As this year is a little different, please feel free to email me email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns!
Class Teacher: Miss Quinn
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Davies
Additional Support Staff: Mrs Morris, Mrs Clegg and Mrs Nixon
In Year 5, we use Class Dojo as a way of sharing the amazing things your child has done and also as a link between home and school. You will be sent a parent login so that you can see how your child is doing in school and so that you can communicate with me. If you have any issues logging in, please contact me.
It is essential that your child reads their colour band reading book at least 3 times per week to help them develop their reading fluency and understanding. Some home reading may be independent but please listen to your child read out loud regularly. Having an audience really encourages children to practise their reading fluency and gives a purpose for reading.
You must sign your child's reading record each time.
As part of their reading homework, each child will be expected to complete a weekly reading journal. This is due every Friday.
As well as our school library collection, all our colour band books are available online at www.activelearnprimary.co.uk. Your child has a login for this and can access this from home.
Spellings will be given out each week and your child will have a test every Friday. To help your child improve their spelling ability, please practise them daily. Your child can access their spellings and practise independently at https://spellingframe.co.uk/.
Your child should know all their multiplication and division facts. Being able to use these facts is essential for all areas of maths. Your child will have a times tables test every week. To help them prepare, please practise with them or give them time to use https://ttrockstars.com/.
In Year 5, the children will have a P.E. lesson every Monday and Thursday. You must provide your child with the correct PE kit. It is helpful if this is kept in school; all items must be named. Please make sure that, as the weather changes, you provide a plain zip up jacket or jumper for PE as we may take lessons outside. Please refer to the uniform policy for more information.
Fresh fruit is provided daily at play time for all children at a cost of £1 per week. We collect fruit money every Monday morning so please make sure that you keep up to date with this. Please ensure the money is in an envelope or small sandwich bag with your child's name on it.
