Year 5 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Year 5C's class page

Our class teacher is Mrs Cookson. 

Mrs Freeman help us with our learning.

Children need to be on the yard and lined up at 8.40am and the school day starts at 8.45am. For collection at the end of the day, the children are brought to the ramp in the junior yard to be collected by their parents at 3.20pm. For those children who walk home or parents wish to collect them from the front of school please let a member of staff know. 


Homework each week will usually consist of:

1x Literacy and 1x Maths

Each half term:1 x Other (usually science or topic work)

Homework will be sent home on a Thursday and will be due back into school on or before the following Tuesday.

If children ever have problems with their homework, please encourage them to speak to me about it as soon as possible. We can then go through it again together before it is due to be handed in.

Homework will often be set on Mirodo. Children must also complete 15 minutes reading a day, either their home reading book or read theory online. Children are also expected to access TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed to aid their learning. 

General Reminders…

Indoor PE- Tuesday

Outdoor PE- Friday

Swimming - Tuesday morning

Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. Trainers and a sweatshirt or jumper may be worn for outdoor PE.

Children should have in school a small water bottle with a non-spill spout.

Children will be participating in outdoor learning - no matter the weather, as we approach winter please ensure children have the appropriate shoes and clothing. We do have waterproof overtrousers for children to use. 

Class Dojo

The school is continuing to use the Class Dojo software as a reward system. Most parents are already signed up from last year but for those who aren't, a letter detailing how to sign up and access the app will be sent home with your child. Once downloaded, you will then be able to see how your child is getting on in class and have access to the message facility where I will post updates about the class.
