Year 5

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, Green: Mr Kelly and Miss Brennock and Yellow: Mrs Norwood and Mrs Smith.

What and When…

· P.E: Full kits need to be in school every day, including track suit bottoms for cold weather and trainers. 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 . Also, the kits need to be in their special yellow PE bags.

· Home Learning is set on Fridays and is due in on the following Wednesday.

· Times Tables are tested frequently. It is important that children are practising these regularly at home as well as in school. Times Table Rockstar log-in details will be in the back of your child’s home learning book.

· Your child will have an independent reading book. 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 continue to make comments about your child’s reading in their reading record book. Please keep an eye on your child’s reading and ensure that their reading record book is in school with their reading book, every day.
