Year 5 2020 - 2021
Year 5 teacher
Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page!
I hope you have all had a brilliant Christmas holidays, and you are ready for an action-packed Spring Term!
The children are regularly assessed by myself, and their Power teachers, to ensure we are up to date with their current level of attainment. They have been streamed into the relevant Power Maths and Literacy groups, for their stage of development. This will continue for eight weeks, at which point they will be re-assessed and re-groupings may take place.
Our curriculum map is attached to this page so you can read about our plans for Spring Term. We will continue to work with specialist teachers for our Music, Dance and French lessons.
I hope the children are all eager to come back to school and are ready for a fabulous, exciting term of learning.
Should you have any concerns or queries, please remember that I am usually available to talk each afternoon at home time.
Mr E Hughes
All reading books and journals need to be in school every day. Please try to read at least three times a week with your child. Regular reading practice at home can help to improve your child's reading, spelling, vocabulary and writing so it is very important.
Homework will be set every Wednesday by your child's 'Power Teacher' with the expectation that it will be back in school by Monday. Alongside our Power homework each week, I will be setting spellings (From the Year 5/6 Spelling List) and a stand-alone homework quest that should be completed over the course of a few weeks - details to follow.
The children will be in PE sessions every Tuesday (Volleyball) and Wednesday (Dodgeball). However, there may be occasions when PE kits are required for other activities/unscheduled events and so it is important that your child's kit is in school every day.
