Welcome to Year 5!
Your teachers this year are Miss Ryan (Monday – Wednesday) and Mrs Gillott (Thursday and Friday).
Reading in Year Five…
Reading with your child as often as possible is essential to their progress. We do not use reading records in Year Five as it is just expected that children will read every day.
Having a rapid recall of all multiplication and division facts is vital in Year Five. Please practise these with your child to ensure they know them securely within the Autumn term. We will continue to use Times Table Rockstars to consolidate these facts too!
Spellings will be sent home on a Friday night. Children are expected to practise spellings by writing them out. They can also put them into sentences. This will help with their sentence structure and use of punctuation. Children will be tested on these spellings every Friday.
- Year Five’s PE days are Monday and Thursday. Children must come to school in PE kit on these days. For health and safety reasons, your child should not wear jewellery on these days, especially earrings. They must have appropriate footwear too.
- Year 5 will also be swimming every Tuesday morning. Please ensure your child brings their swimming costume or shorts and a towel.

If you have any further questions about this year, then please do not hesitate to ask.
