Welcome to Year 5

Mrs Vanstone, Miss Buse and Miss Cowell are the class teachers, our teaching assistants are Mr Jones, Mrs 'LouLou' Evans and Mrs Brown.
 

This half term our context is 'Stargazers'

Maths Reinforcement
 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.

 

HOMEWORK

Homework will be sent home every Friday. 

Homework will consist of a spelling list (that can be kept at home to practise every day) and either a maths, comprehension or context piece of work. Homework should be brought back in homework folders every Monday morning.


PE Lessons and Kit

PE will take place on a Wednesday and Friday
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.  

Spellings
Spelling tests take place on a Friday morning. 

 

Big Maths

Big Maths 'Clic' and 'Learn its' tests will take place on a Wednesday morning. The children will bring home their completed tests for parents/guardians to see how well they are doing and any areas where support is needed.
