Welcome to our Year 5 class pages. Here you will find information about our classroom routines and a few snapshots of the wonderful things we do in Year 5. There are two Year Five classes: 5M and 5C. Mr Mounsdon teaches 5M and Mr Casswell teaches 5C. In addition, Mrs Prescott, Miss Beard and Miss Dixon work across both classes.

Our Classrooms

 

Reading in Year Five

We bring our reading books into school every day and it gets changed once a week on an allocated day (or more frequent if necessary). An adult should listen to us read every night at home as part of our homework.

Homework in Year Five

Homework for both Maths and English is given out on a Wednesday and should be completed and returned to school no later than the following Monday.

Pupils will receive a weekly spelling list as part of their homework on Mondays, which they should practise each night through the week in order to be ready for their spelling challenge / test on Fridays. New spellings will be uploaded to the website every Friday should you wish to get ahead in your practice.

Pupils’ homework tasks generally include:

  1. Reading Plus tasks online (they have their own logins)
  2. TTRockstars (Times tables practice activities)
  3. Spelling and Reading activities on IDL (they have their own logins)
  4. Read each day for at least 5 minutes
  5. Weekly spelling lists
  6. Paper-based tasks linked to work in English, Maths or other subjects (completed in a workbook)

If your child cannot remember their log-on details, please message their class teacher on Class Dojo.

Here is a link to the key words that the children need to learn to read, spell and use by the end of the year:

PE Days in Year Five

We generally do PE on a Friday, however the day may vary, therefore children should bring their PE kits in every Monday morning and leave them in school all week. For indoor PE, they should wear a white t-shirt and white shorts with black pumps. For outdoor PE, they can wear a tracksuit, especially in the winter, and trainers to keep their feet dry!
