Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Year 5.  This webpage is designed to give you an overview of what we will be doing and some of the ways that you can help your child to succeed.

The Year 5 Team

Year 5 will be taught by Miss Lawler and Mrs Kilshaw.  If you have any queries or need any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.  You can leave messages for us at the school office, send a Class Dojo message, talk to us at home time and you can also write in your child’s reading diary.

Useful Information

To help your child be organised we provide the following information.

PE Kits:  PE takes place on a Tuesday afternoon. PE kit's should be in school at all times,  we will send them home to be washed at half term.  Kits and pumps should be named.  Details of all kit and uniform is on the website.  

Reading: Reading books will be sent out on a Thursday and should only be returned on Mondays. This is so they can be quarantined for an appropriate amount of time before they are given out again. Children will read independently and with an adult in school from Monday - Thursday.

Homework: Spellings and times tables should be practiced over the weekend. 

Independence: From the very start of the year, we will be encouraging the children to be more independent and take responsibility for their learning and actions.  The pace of learning will accelerate and your child will be expected to “take control” of their learning by recognising what they need to do to improve - in some cases this may mean additional work.

Please see the curriculum information booket below to see what we are learning in class.

We hope that you will find this information helpful.  If you require any further information please contact us.
