Welcome to Year 5!
Your teachers this year will be Mrs Saunders and Mr Cochrane!
Could all children ensure they have the correct PE kit in school each week, ready for our timetabled lessons on Mondays and Fridays as well as any other opportunities to be active during the school week.
This half term, Year 5 will have a Geography focus based around the Woodgate Valley area. During this focus the children will investigate and carry out field work and other tasks related to the physical features there and the surrounding environment.
This year homework will be handed out on a Friday and expected to be completed then handed in by the Wednesday of the following week.
Homework will consist of an English based task, a Maths task as well as spellings.
Spellings will be tested each Friday.
Housepoints will be awarded for completed homework and the children will have the opportunity to display some examples around the classroom.
As well as homework, the children will also be expected to take responsibility to change their reading books on a regular basis using the school library.
To encourage the children to read regularly at home, we would appreciate it if adults could record, in Reading Records, each time the child has read.
