Welcome to Year Five
A very warm welcome back to school to everyone and I hope you all had an enjoyable festive break. Our Autumn term flew by so quickly and we packed in such great learning. We all absolutely adored our class novel A Christmas Carol and our visit to the Dukes Theatre. We even had a visit from Marley to Year 5 reminding Mr Heron to be kind to the children by setting no Christmas homework!
This class are a pleasure to teach and they surprise and support me everyday in so many ways.
Please note our new homework rules in Year 5 from January 2024.
Completion of weekly homework is an important part of children becoming responsible for their learning. Children will expected to complete and hand it in on time throughout their academic career. Homework will be given to children on a Friday. Children will expected to complete and hand in homework by the next Friday morning. Children who don’t hand in homework by the specified date will complete it in school, during their break time.
Children will get spellings as part of the weekly homework to practice for a test in the following week.
Please ensure children are reading regularly at least 5 days a week for 10 minutes at a time. Please aim to listen to your child read as often as possible. Please also read to your children too as this has a huge positive impact on their reading development.
You could help your children by:
• making time for prayer.
• reading and discussing their home reading books.
• ensure your child is practicing their times tables.
(a good website resource is www.timestables.co.uk)
The Year 5 teaching team are Mr Heron and Miss Oates. Feel free to come and speak to us over any concerns or to see how well your child is progressing, at the end of the day. If it is urgent please speak to the office.
