Year 5 is taught by Mrs Cheetham and Mrs Woolley is the class teaching assistant.
English and Maths homework will be set by Thursday ( this will include spellings and timestables ) and should be completed and returned to school by Tuesday. One piece of homework will be set for topic work or science.
Daily reading , of at least 15 minutes per day, is expected of all pupils. A home reading record has been provided for you to comment and sign. All pupils must have their reading records signed. Reading is an essential part of learning and it is fantastic when we can support the children both at school and home. Home reading books will be changed when necessary. A reading activity will be sent home for your child to complete each week. Each child will have an opportunity each week to share what reading activity they have done with the rest of the class.
A reminder of essential PE kit
The following PE kit is expected for all pupils:
Indoor - Plain white round neck t- shirt , plain black shorts and black PE pumps.
Outdoor - Same as above plus a sweatshirt and tracksuit bottoms ( for colder weather ) Old trainers are recommended for PE.
Monday - Indoor
Thursday - Outdoor
For health and safety please ensure no earrings are worn on these days.
In order for your child to access water during the school day, you can either buy school water bottles or send in one from home. please only send water and make sure it is non-spill.
Through parent pay you can pay for all items such as school uniform, water bottles, trips, PE and reading bags.
This is a great way to keep in touch and on track of your child's achievements / rewards / sanctions. If you are having trouble accessing this then just let me know.
Any messages you feel I need to be made aware of can also be given to Mrs King at the office and they will be passed on to me, If you have any enquiries, I am available before and after school. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
