Year 5 2023 - 2024
Welcome to our Year 5 class page.
Our teachers are Mrs Chatterton and Mrs Kirkpatrick (Thursdays) and our teaching assistant is Mrs Noblett.
We are a class of 29 amazing children who have settled well into their Upper Key Stage 2 journey.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to email at -
BIG QUESTION is:Which is more important the journey or the destination?
Have a look at the documents available to download at the bottom of this page. You will hopefully find some prompt sheets that you find useful and helpful. You will also see our half term curriculum leaflet which gives an overview of our learning intentions across the curriculum.
Year 5 will continue with their swimming lessons on a Thursday morning this term and so please remember to bring your swimming kit (swimwear, goggles, towel, swimming cap and roll-on deodorant if needed) and also wear PE kit on this day. PE will also be on a Tuesday this half term and so the children will need to come to school in PE kit on this day too.
The brass lesson is every Friday afternoon. Please encourage your child to log in to Charanga and practise. Please also remind them to bring their instrument back into school each Wednesday or Thursday morning. The lesson is not so worthwhile without the instrument to play!
Homework will be posted on the website on a Friday to be completed at the latest by the following Thursday unless otherwise stated. Please respond as requested and upload or comment as appropriate. Each week there will be an English task and a maths task to reinforce learning taking place in class. In addition, please continue to learn/practise spellings from the statutory word list, read lots and continue to practise multiplication tables to maintain speed of recall.
Please try really hard to read at least three times a week. You could read the reading book you have brought home from school or another book from home or the library that you really enjoy. Why not ask an adult to read to you too. Remember to log your reading on the Boom Reader App.
On our class page the statutory words for Year 3 and 4 and Year 5 and 6 are listed. We are now focusing on the Year 5 and Year 6 list at school and this will also be helpful to practise from at home too.
As you know, by the end of Year 4, children should be able to recall all the times tables up to 12x12. Now that the children are in Year 5, please encourage them to keep the practise up. Please enable the children to practise on TimesTables Rockstars at least 3 times a week.
