I would like to extend a warm welcome back to the new school year. I hope that you and your children had a wonderful summer and I am really looking forward to working with you this year.
The teacher in Year 5 is Mrs Younger. The other adults who will be supporting teaching and learning in Year 5 are Mrs Hemus and Mrs Fernandez.
The Year 5 curriculum builds on the knowledge gained in Year 4. In Year 5, our aim is to prepare the children with the knowledge and skills needed for Year 6.
Year 5 is due to be a very exciting year and there are many enjoyable activities to look forward to, both inside and outside of school.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please feel free to approach me at the end of the day. If I am not available or this is not convenient for yourself, then please make an appointment with me via the school office.
It is important to remember that you as parents are the prime educators of your child and therefore by working as a team together, I aim to ensure your child reaches their full potential whilst in my care.
The children will be given homework in order to practice and consolidate basic skills
Spellings – Set on Monday, tested on Friday.
Times Tables – Set on Friday, tested on Monday
Maths 10 minute tests – Set on Friday, due on Monday.
We also expect the children to read every day and to record this in their reading diaries.
PE is on a Wednesday, but we suggest that children bring in their PE kits on a Monday in case there are any extra opportunities for physical activity.
