Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


A warm welcome to a brand new school year!

We will be working hard to identify, fill and consolidate any gaps in children's learning.  It is very important that children are working hard at school and at home every day.  I recommend at least 15 minutes of Mathletics and spelling practice and 30 minutes of reading daily.  Children will be tested on their spellings and times tables every Thursday.  Homework will be given on Friday (via Google Classroom) and is expected to be returned every Wednesday.  Please remind your children that they need to complete their homework activities, if your child is struggling in any areas of the homework, please support them as best you can, a routine time and space for completing homework is essential.  Children can also find help with homework by seeing a member of the Year 5 team during Monday lunchtimes.  


Our topics this term are Wales and the Anglo-Saxons.  Research projects will be sent home occasionally, you can support your child with these projects by working alongside them.


Every Tuesday children should be prepared for multi-sports by bringing their PE kit and each Wednesday a swimming kit (costume / trunks, towel and swimming cap) is needed for swimming lessons.  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.  School uniform is a red school jumper / fleece with a white or red shirt underneath.  Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts, NOT tracksuit bottoms or leggings.  Shoes must be black.


Reading records need to be filled in each day with a comment and signature from parents / carers.


Learning begins with a 'soft-start' Tuesday - Friday at 8:45 - 9am.  This is a great opportunity for children to respond to marking or address any difficulties they may be experiencing with their work.  The Year 5 team will always be in the classroom at these times to support your child's learning.


If you have any questions about the school day, learning or welfare, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to speak to one of the team.


Kind regards,

The Year 5 Teaching Team 

If you would like more information about the curriculum SPSM follows, please ask your child's class teacher.  Thank you.
