Welcome to Year Five
Welcome back to school to everyone and I hope you all had a relaxing summer break. I am so excited to be teaching this wonderful class again and look forward to learning all about Year 5 together!
The newsletter gives more information but homework will be given out weekly and it is to be handed in by the following Wednesday.
If you are struggling with equipment at home you can spend some time in school at breaktime or lunchtime to complete this homework.
The autumn term begins with spelling words which have unstressed vowels in polysyllabic words. Children will get spellings as part of the weekly homework to practice for a test in the following week.
Please ensure children are reading regularly at least 5 days a week for 10 minutes at a time. Please aim to listen to your child read as often as possible. Please also read to your children too as this has a huge positive impact on their reading development.
You could help your children by:
• making time for prayer.
• reading and discussing their home reading books.
• ensure your child is practicing their times tables.
(a good website resource is www.timestables.co.uk)
The Year 5 teaching team are Mr Heron and Miss Oates. Feel free to come and speak to us over any concerns or to see how well your child is progressing, at the end of the day. If it is urgent please speak to the office.
