Welcome to Year 5!
Year 5 consists of two classes with approximately 30 children in each class. The classes are mixed ability classes. The year 5 teaching staff have a wealth of experience which brings engagement and fun to the lessons whilst driving forward with high expectations and pride in work. Both classes gain additional support from highly motivated teaching assistants.
English is underpinned by high quality texts which are carefully chosen to engage and interest and develop an understanding of wider curriculum areas where possible. Real life opportunities are given for writing and the children are taught through a clear model of Immerse, Analyse and Write, so that the children become proficient writers in a wide range of texts. Every class has a whole class novel to study and enjoy.
WhiteRose is used to support the planning and delivery of Maths, through the use of concrete, pictorial and abstract models. The children are supported with their learning through the use of scaffolds and concrete equipment.
Children have P.E on Thursdays and Fridays.
Children are expected to read at least four times a week for twenty minutes.
Spellings will be set on a Friday and children will be tested the following Friday.
English and Maths homework will be set on Fridays. This should be completed and handed in to your class teacher the following Friday. If your child has not handed in their homework by this day, they will be given until the following Monday to hand it in. Otherwise, they will be expected to complete the work at lunchtime with a member of staff.
