Year 5 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Year Five’s class page!
The Year Five team are Mrs Seth (class teacher), Miss Crewdson (Teaching assistant), We want your child to enjoy their time in Year Five and flourish both academically and emotionally, so please let us know if you have any worries or concerns.
We have an exciting, stimulating and engaging year at school for our class - keep an eye on the website to see what we’ve been up to!
In the Autumn term, we are learning about the Greeks and next term, we will be exploring Space!
For a more in-depth look at what we will be studying this year, please find attached the Autumn overview.
In Year Five we encourage children to have independence and resilience in preparation for Year Six, and eventually high school, so it is important for children to be aware of when homework, spellings, P.E. kits and swimming kits are needed.
PE kits are needed on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has a PE T-shirt, shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Swimming is on a Thursday morning. Children need a suitable swimming costume or shorts, a towel and a swimming cap (if their hair is longer than shoulder-length). For safety reasons, earrings and other jewellery are not permitted in either P.E. or swimming.
Homework is usually handed out on a Thursday, and must be handed in by the following Wednesday at the latest. If your child is struggling with any questions, they are welcome to bring the work into school at any time before the Wednesday, and I or Miss Crewdson will help them with it. If homework is not handed in by Wednesday morning, then your child will have to stay in the following break-time to do it.
Spellings are usually handed out on a Tuesday, and tested the following Tuesday. Children learn their spellings in preparation for the weekly test. If it is evident that children have been practising their spellings at home but have not scored at least 16, they will be retested on the ones they got incorrect on Wednesday. Otherwise, children scoring less than 16 correct will have to practise their spellings 5 times each during break-time.
Weekly Times tables tests: Times tables are tested four times a week.
Summative assessments will be carried out on a termly basis; children will be assessed in SPAG, Maths, Reading and Writing.
