Welcome to Year 5

Welcome back everyone, hope you had a good Summer holiday.

Mrs Prince and Mrs Tanner are the class teachers, there is support throughout the week from our Teaching Assistants and the Inclusion team

Maths reinforcement and homework
Your child can continue to develop the maths skills taught each week, by accessing their own 'Maths world' at Active Learn. Each child has been given a username and password. The school code is qlq7.

Children also should complete any homework set on Abacus. When this is complete, children should regularly re-look over previous topics covered to reinforce prior learning.

Activities can be attempted more than once, with an aim of improving on previous scores - it is a new scheme. The children will be shown how to use the site in class. It’s is a fantastic resource that the children must make the most of.




MATHLETICS - Feedback from many pupils and parents, and indeed all teachers, has been that this is one of the best resources that we have seen to help pupils improve their maths in a fun way.  Please ensure your child has enrolled on Mathletics

PE Lessons and Kit
Year 5 pupils must wear a change of clothing and shoes for PE and games activities.  A navy T-shirt and navy blue shorts are required, plus trainers or similar footwear.  Navy t-shirts may be purchased from YC Sports. Children will not be allowed to participate without suitable clothing. During colder weather, tracksuits or other warm clothing may be worn.

Please can children leave kit on their pegs during term time as we occasionally go out on other days too.

Boys will require football boots, as will any girls participating in football or rugby activities after school.  

Spelling tests take place on a Friday morning. We will be catching up with normal spelling tests again now that all of the national tests have been completed. Spelling swill be given out every Friday.

The first spelling test will be on Friday 18th September.
