Welcome to Year 5!
The Year 5 teaching team are Miss Dwyer, Mrs Heaton and Mrs Ward. We are delighted to help your child on their journey through the engaging and challenging Year 5 curriculum.
In Year 5, we love reading! Stories, poems and factual texts help to increase a child’s knowledge of vocabulary, their ability to comprehend and help them to write their own imaginative pieces of work. Please listen to your child read regularly, even just one page of their reading book, and talk to them about what they have read and any words that they found challenging.
Every week, pupils will be given homework on Purple Mash to continue their learning experiences beyond the classroom. Please help to ensure that your child completes this homework byTuesday. The children also have access to TT Rockstars to continue practising their times tables. It is very helpful for their learning if they practice their times tables so that they know the answers quickly. If there are any issues regarding homework, or your child finds a particular piece of homework challenging, then please do not hesitate to speak to us.
We teach PE on Mondays. Please make sure that your child comes to school in the appropriate PE kit for the weather to keep them warm. It is very important that they have appropriate footwear for PE outside – like trainers or pumps.
We look forward to helping your child thrive as an independent learner. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
