Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 - Spring Term 1


We will continue working to identify and consolidate any gaps in children's learning.  It is very important that children are doing work every day.  I recommend 30 minutes of reading and completing their Reading Journals, 15 minutes of 'Mathletics'  and 15 minutes spent practicing their spellings and times tables daily.  The children will be tested weekly on Thursdays.  If your child struggles in any of these areas, more time should be spent on them.  This is in addition to the homework handed out on Fridays which needs to be submitted on Google Classroom on Wednesdays.  If there is a question about the homework, children can see one of the Year 5 teaching team on Monday lunchtimes and we will go over it with them.  Please support your child by providing them with a time and place to work and asking if they have completed their homework.


Our topics this term are rivers and habitats.  We will occasionally send home research projects for the children to work on - please support your child as best you can with this.


Year 5 have PE lessons on Tuesday (pm) and Wednesday (am).  Children should bring a PE kit with them on Tuesdays as they will get changed during school time.  On Wednesdays, children can wear their PE kit to school and bring their uniform with them to change in to after the lesson.  It is important to ensure that children are changing completely for PE to promote good personal hygiene.  The PE kit remains unchanged - white t-shirt with black bottoms and black trainers.  School uniform is  a red school jumper with a white or red shirt underneath or a red school fleece.  Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts, not tracksuit bottoms or leggings.  Shoes should be black.


School begins with a 'soft-start' on Tuesday - Friday at 8:45am.  This is an excellent opportunity for children to respond to marking or address any difficulties they may be having with their work.  The Year 5 team (teacher or TA) will always be in the classroom during these times to support your child's learning.


If there are any questions regarding this information, or any aspect of your child's learning, please make an appointment to speak with one of us.


Kind regards,


The Year 5 Teaching Team
