Year Five

Class teacher: Mrs A Pierce Collinao

When your child starts in a new year group, there are often lots of questions that you have. We hope that this information will help you and your child to adjust to any changes.  Staff are always available at the beginning and end of the school day if you have any questions or queries.

The children come straight into class after the gate opens at 8.45.

Curriculum Organisation 
You will be informed at the beginning of each term of the blocks to be covered. It is helpful if the children have access to a range of information sources to support these studies. If you have any relevant books, materials or particular expertise which would enhance any of our studies and displays, we would be most grateful. Please ensure that any objects brought into school are clearly named. We will, of course, look after anything sent in. 
In addition to the set homework, it is still important that your child reads at home on a regular basis. You can support your child by hearing them read aloud and by asking them questions about the text to develop their comprehension skills. Children need to ensure that their reading book is in school every day.
In Year 5, children may borrow a book from the school library. They will have the opportunity to change this book weekly. If you would like to assist with changing books in the library on a regular basis, please let us know. 

Physical Education
Children should come to school wearing their PE kits on Tuesday and Friday.
Home learning

Each week, the children are expected to complete their Reading Journals.  The expectation in Year 5 is that the children will include at least four entries of reading and will complete at least one good quality activity.

All children have access to Maths Whizz.  The expectation is that they will complete a minimum of 60 minutes each week; this includes the time they spend on this in school during guided maths.

In addition to this, children may be set home learning linked to topic areas.  These will be posted on Google Classroom.

Water bottles
Throughout the school, children are asked to bring in a named bottle of water each day, which they can drink from in the classroom. These should be sports style bottles rather than screw top bottles. There will be a crate in the classroom for these to be put in each day.
Pencil Cases
Children are provided with a pencil case containing all the items they will need, so there is no need for children to bring in stationery items from home.
Named Clothing
Please can you ensure that all your child’s uniform is named. Obviously most of the uniform looks very similar, so it is hard to return items if there are no visible names!
