Hello and welcome to year 5!
I know it has been a very long time for most of you since you have last been in school. I hope you have all had a lovely summer break and are excited for your first term in year 5. I’m really looking forward to getting to know the class, we have lots of interesting topics to learn!
Home work will be given out every Thursday and handed back in on a Monday. There will be two pieces of homework usually one English and one Maths.
Spelling tests and new spellings to learn will be set every Thursday.
All children will read with an adult during their guided reading sessions once a week within small groups. In addition to this, children will be given as school book to read at home with an adult or older sibling. Reading records are checked every Monday and children are expected to read a minimum of three times a week at home where it is recorded and signed by the adult. If children have read three times they receive one merit point, if they have read five times they will receive five merit points.
PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. Please make sure all PE kits (suitable for indoor and outdoor) are named and at school on these days.
