Welcome to Year 5!


Important things to remember:

  • Please ensure your child has a labelled PE kit in school every day. PE lessons are every Monday and Tuesday. 
  • Keyboard lessons are on a Thursday morning with Fran Sixsmith.
  • Homework is handed out on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday. Please ensure their homework is presented to a high standard. If your child is having any problems with their homework, please ask me for help as soon as possible.
  • Homework will include:
    Spellings - spelling test will be every Thursday.
    Maths - linked to our learning that week or times tables.
    English - e.g. reading comprehension or grammar practise. 
  • It is really important that your child reads regularly - they should all read at least three times each week. All reading should be noted in reading records and an adult must sign this once a week. Reading and discussing the book with your child will develop reading comprehension skills too.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to see me at the end of the school day.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
