Meet the Year 5 team.
Y5 class teacher: Miss Coleman
Y5 Learning Support Assistant: Mrs Stokes
Please do not hesitate to contact any of the adults in Year 5 for any information regarding your child in school.
Our classroom environment.
This year, the Year 5 classroom is themed on The book, 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief'.
We currently have P.E on a Tuesday afternoon and forest school on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child comes to school in suitable P.E kit on a Tuesday and clothes you do not mind getting muddy on a Wednesday. Children should bring a change of clothes and shoes on a Wednesday in case the weather is bad. Uniform would be preferable however any change of clothes and shoes is fine.
Homework will be sent out on a Monday in order to be returned on a Thursday.
Each week, on a Monday, ten spellings will be taught and sent home. Is is vital that these spellings are practised at home so that children are able to apply the correct spellings and rules to their writing. Spelling tests are every Friday.
Home reading is extremely important, try reading every day at home- even if it's for a short period of time each day as this will add up over the week and help to improve reading fluency. Our school reading target is to aim for 70% of children in each class to read at least 4 times at home. If we reach our target, we will receive a silver book, which enables us to choose a new book for our classroom. If we achieve the highest percentage in school, we will receive a gold book, which allows us to win one of the golden books we have chosen as a class.
