Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 2018 - 2019!

 

Dear Parents and Children,

 

Welcome to the Year 5 website page. You will find lots of important information on this page as well as pictures that capture the children's learning. Your class teachers this year are Mrs Stevenson (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Thompson (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).  Mrs Solomou is the class TA and will be working daily. We are all really looking forward to the year ahead. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Mrs Stevenson and Mrs Thompson

Reading

We really hope to instill a 'love of reading' in Year 5 and we have a wide selection of recommended Year 5 books for the children to choose from. We ask that the children have their reading diary and reading book in school every day. It is really important that the children are reading at least 3 times a week and that they continue to read to an adult (even for a few pages). We would really appreciate parental support with asking your child about the book they are reading, in order to continue to develop their comprehension.

Throughout the year, we will be studying recommended reading texts for Year 5, during Guided reading. Fortunately, we have some class sets of books, but we may ask if you are able to buy or borrow copies of a particular book, in order for us to be able to study a text in detail. We really appreciate your support and generosity with this.

Homework

Homework will be sent out on a Thursday and needs to be handed in on the following Thursday. The children will be given plastic folders to keep their homework in.

 

English & Maths

English homework will be sent home usually in paper form, but maths homework will be set online, using Mathletics.

 

Spellings

Each week, the children will be taught a particular spelling pattern/rule from the Year 5 curriculum. The children will have opportunities to explore words with the particular pattern and daily morning spelling practice. The children have also been individually tested on year group word lists. They will be given 10 spelling words with the spelling pattern that they have been taught that week, and they will also choose 5 of the words that they need to learn from the year group word list. The children will be tested on their spellings every Friday morning and given new spellings for the following week. More information about useful spelling strategies has been included within this pack.

 

Research

In addition to this, the children will have research that must be completed by Monday of the following week. This is normally given out on a Thursday and will help the children feel prepared for the topic learning ahead. They will have the opportunity to share their research with the rest of the class every Monday.

 

Extended Writing Prompt

On Wednesdays, the children will be given an extended writing prompt to take home and we would really appreciate it if they had an opportunity to discuss their ideas at home, ready to write on Friday.

 

Times tables

Every other week we will be testing the children on their times tables, and giving them a mental maths test. It is important that the children continue to practise their times tables on a weekly basis.

 

‘Pick n Mix’ Topic Homework

We have given the children ‘Pick n Mix’ style Topic homework. We would like the children to complete at least 3 items from the list given, during each half term. We love seeing any topic work that the children have completed at home and encourage them to bring these in when they are completed to share with the class.
