Year 5

Welcome

Welcome to year 5. The staff who work in our team : Mr Young (Year 5 Teacher), Mrs Reed (Year 5-6 Teacher), Mrs Runcieman-Smeaton (Year 5 Teacher of the Deaf), Mrs Crosby (TA), Mrs Harper (HI  TA)

Our homework is given out at the start of each half term. There will be nine pieces and the minimum that we expect is six pieces.

Spellings will be given out every Friday and they will be tested on a Friday as well.

Reading should be done at least three times a week. The children will have two reading books: One which is from the school reading scheme and another which is a free choice book.  The children will have the opportunity to change books on a Monday and it is their responsibility to ensure that this is done.

Times tables should be regularly practised throughout the week.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any member of the Year 5 team. Our email addresses are below:
