Year Five


Class teacher: Miss L Brown
Teaching Assistants:  Miss H Iliffe & Mrs A Emery

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. 
 
Reading
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.
 
Library
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. Our Library day is now WEDNESDAY.

Physical Education
Although it will be useful for your child to have their PE kit in school every day, the scheduled days for Year 5 PE will be Tuesday and Thursday. Swimming will take place on a Wednesday afternoon during the summer term and weather permitting during September.
 
Homelearning
Each Wednesday, the children will bring home their homelearning task. This will be expected to back in school on the Monday so that we can look through it with the children and have it marked and returned by the Wednesday. Some homework will be set on www.iamlearning.co.uk - the children all have their login details for this site.
 
 
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! Please can you also ensure that your child’s PE kit is in school on Monday each week.
