Welcome to Year 5
Our class page is here to support both children and parents. On this page, you will find useful information on what happens in school each week. You will also find the latest class newsletter which gives you an overview of the current term. To showcase the children’s fantastic work and our wonderful classroom, we have a class photo gallery below – we hope you enjoy!
Our Year 5 class teachers are Mr Manders and Mrs Sawdon who are supported by the wonderful Mrs Simpson.
Homework KS2 Expectations and Help:
Our weekly homework is posted on the class Google Classroom. All children have login details – for help with Google Classroom, please click here.
Reading: Children are expected to read out loud to an adult every day. Parents/carers are requested to sign home reading records to confirm reading. We ask children to bring their reading book and reading log in to school every day.
Spelling: Each week, we learn new spelling rules in school. The children are given a list of these words to learn at home each Friday for a test the following Friday.
Timetables: Children are expected to practise their times tables every day. Each child has been provided with a unique login to Times Tables Rockstars.
Skills Booklets: To consolidate the maths and English skills taught in school, and provide children with additional revision opportunities, we use CGP skills booklets. Each Friday, children are asked to complete pages in the GPS and Maths books.
Year 5 has PE every Thursday and Friday. On PE days, children should come to school wearing their full PE kit. Details of our PE expectations can be found on our school uniform page which can be found here. Our whole school PE timetable can be reviewed here.
Each term, you will receive a class newsletter detailing the wonderful teaching and learning happening in our class. Read all about it here – Click:Year 5 news letter autumn 2021
