Welcome to Year 5
Our class teacher is: Mrs Deren
This term we will be exploring space! An exciting topic that helps us to build our skills in many curriculum areas including science, literacy and maths. We will develop our knowledge of the Solar System and learn about the Moon, planets and significant individuals including Galileo and Newton.
Please keep visiting to see the wonderful things we are doing in class!
PE will be every Monday with Mrs O’Neil. Please make sure:
Weekly spelling lists will be given out on a Monday. Please practise these with your child a few times during the week as they will be tested on them the following Monday.
I have lots of spare copies in class if they’re needed.
We will regularly provide your children with a reading book from our bug club library which is levelled correctly for their reading ability. They will also have a home/school reader record, you can make a comment in the journal that refers to how well your child has read the book (including errors made/parts they struggled with), how confident their reading was and whether or not they enjoyed the text. We ask that you aim to listen to your child read 3 times a week to accompany the various reading activities we provide in school. In addition to this children should continue to use Active learn Bug club for online reading.
Children have access to many games and apps that will help them to revise their maths skills.
If anyone has forgotten their log in details please let me know and I can get them reprinted for you.
At parents evening I gave out user ID and Passwords for Times Tables Rockstars. Children can use these to practise their tables which will help them in their daily maths lessons.
