Year 5 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year Five’s class page!
The Year Five team are Mrs Thomas (class teacher), Mrs Finnigan (HL teaching assistant), Mrs Ward (intervention teacher) and Mrs Morgan (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 first half of the Autumn term, we loved learning about the Greeks, and this half-term we’ve been getting passionate about the Environment. Next half-term, we will be exploring Space!
For a more in-depth look at what we will be studying this year, please find attached the long-term plan.
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 Tuesday, and must be handed in by the following Tuesday 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 Tuesday, and I or Mrs Finnigan will help them with it. If homework is not handed in by Tuesday morning, then your child will have to stay in the following break-time to do it.
Spellings are usually handed out on a Monday, and tested the following Monday. The first spellings after a holiday will be a random mixture of previous will be tested on 20 spellings each week. 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 Tuesday. Otherwise, children scoring less than 16 correct will have to practise their spellings 5 times each during break-time on a Friday.
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.
