Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

Hello and welcome to the Year 5 section of our amazing school website. Here you can get a taste of all the exciting learning your children are taking part in

 

We are very lucky in Year 5 to have a very dedicated team of adults who are willing to support your children in every step of their school lives. Year 5 is a very important Year and at this time especially the preparation to move to their final Year of primary school can be daunting. It is vital that we work together to support the children so they can make the best start as possible in Year 6. 

 

Expectations Reading: Please try to ensure your children are reading at least 15-20 minutes a night and recording it in their reading records. 

 

Home learning: Just a reminder that home learning goes out on a Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday. We realise at times there are situations that may mean it is difficult to complete the home learning. If this is the case, please use your child’s home school communication to contact us and we will do all we can during school time to aid your children in completing their work. 

 

Times tables: Please try to practice a different times table every night to ensure your child knows them thoroughly. There are so many areas of numeracy that require a solid knowledge of times tables and knowing them well will really help in the learning of new maths concepts. 

 

PE: PE is on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure the children have their kits with them on these days. 

 

Your help and concerns: Your help and support is greatly received by all at our School and it is important to remember we are a community. As such please feel free to come and talk to any of the Year 5 team about any issues or ideas you may have. 

 

We all look forward to seeing you soon!
