Year 5 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Year 5!
I hope you have all had a lovely summer and are ready to get back and stuck into our Year 5 curriculumn. We have the opperunity to learn so many fun and exciting things this year, and I feel honoured to lead you through the start of the year while Mrs Wood is on maternity leave.
We are lucky enough to have the help of Mrs Gardiner every morning during first lesson, and Mrs Prescott during second lesson. Together they make an amazing team, helping us with lots of art projects and interventions. Mrs Gardiner also helps with our KS2 ELSA sessions.
Mrs Williams takes the class for PE on Wednesday afternoons, and Mrs Palfreyman will have the class on Friday afternoons during my ECT time.
Children are greatly benefitted by having frequent oppertunities to read both in school and at home, with the aim being at least three times per week. The class will recieve their reading diaries, in which we would please ask that the reading they undertake at home is recorded. As they are now in year 5, they are free to fill in independant reading in their own diaries. The more children read and record in their diaries, the more points the class will earn on our Read Around the World challenge.
The class have now been added into the Year 5 TTRockstar space. All log in details should remain the same, but please do let me know if you need help access your child's account. We would ask that your child does practise little and often, with the aim being for 3 10 minute practises a week. I know they all did such hard work on their multipliation facts last year, we would love to keep this knowledge level up. We will also set Gigs every so often for the class to complete in lieu of a maths worksheet for homework.
If you have any worries about your child, what we will be covering this year, or anything else please don't hesitiate to get in touch. I am available at the end of school, or alternatively happy to respond to emails.
