Welcome to Year 5
Class teacher: Mr Ben Simmons Class teacher: Mr James Allington
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Sue Abramson Teaching Assistant: Mrs Katie Maguire
Reading: Children should read at home for at least 20 minutes. We check reading records weekly for the Home Reading Challenge so that the children can collect their stickers. Remember - any book counts!
Homework: Year 5 homework is set and sent home on a Friday. This will be shared or used during the following week in our International Primary Curriculum (I.P.C) lessons. Weekly spellings will be sent home with your child that we have already studied. Please practise these at home to secure their understanding. For Mathematics and English homework in term 1, please refer to the pack your child was sent home with to find ideas and tips on how to practise times tables and individualised spellings.
P.E: Year 5 have P.E sessions on a Monday afternoon. These lessons are taught by the class teacher and supported by the teaching assistant. We ask that P.E kits are left in school for the term as there are times when we may have an additional P.E session or a change to the timetabling of the P.E teaching.
Contacting your child’s teacher: If you feel you need to talk to your child’s teacher please do not hesitate to contact the office to make an appointment.
