Welcome to Year 5
Here is some key information to inform you of the weekly routine in Year 5. We have had a great start to the term and have been impressed with the children’s eagerness to learn. This year the Year 5 team are:
Blue: Mrs McGovern and Mrs Landles
Yellow: Mr Odell and Miss Brennock
What and When…
· P.E: Full kits need to be worn on class PE days which are:
Year 5 Blue Tuesday and Friday
Year 5 Yellow Wednesday and Friday
Please ensure that earrings are removed before your child comes to school on P.E days if your child is unable to remove them independently .
· Home Learning is set on Fridays and is due in VIA Google Classroom on the following Thursday. Due to COVID, we are unable to accept paper versions of home learning in school.
· Times Tables are tested frequently. It is important that children are practising these regularly at home as well as in school. Times Table Rockstar and Tackling Table log-in details will be sent home with your child shortly.
· Your child will have an independent reading book. These books will be quarantined for 72 hours upon return, so need to remain at home until your child finishes reading them. To maximise their progress in reading and therefore in writing, they must read at home for 20 minutes each day, both independently and to a willing listener. Also, please make comments about your child's reading on your child's DOJO story.
