Welcome to Year 5!
This year the class teachers are Miss Conroy (5 Gaudi), Miss Holmes (5 Basquiat) and Miss Sheikh (5 Mazari). Mrs Bedford, Mrs Woodard, Mrs O'Hanlon, Mrs Rose and Mrs Kowcun will also support learning across the year group. During the course of Year 5 we will continue to build on the children's independence and resilience skills and also move their learning forward by using our growth mindsets.

Supporting your child with reading

We understand that when pupils get to Key Stage 2, many parents feel unsure about how to support them with their reading.
Attached to this post are some questions which you could ask your child when reading with them, which tackle the key areas of reading comprehension.
A video explaining this is more detail will be released to parents shortly via parentmail.
We hope you find it helpful.

Helping at Home
In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables. It is expected that children use Timestables Rockstars and RM Maths each week; they have their own passwords to access these activities.
In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.
Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read and share their opinions about the texts they read.
Children will visit the school library each week – 5 Dali on Monday, 5 Escher on Wednesday and 5 Gaudi on Friday.
PE is each Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
