Welcome to our Year 5's pages
In Year 5 we will be reading books from the accelerated reading program. Your child will need to read the book thoroughly and then they will be able to take a quiz on the ipad in the mornings. You will need to sign to say you have heard your child read to you before they can go up to the next level of book.
Reading at Home
Reading at home is closely monitored daily to ensure a high percentage of the class reach a target of having read at home at least 3 times each week. Progress in reading has a positive impact on all areas of the curriculum, so it is essential.
As a school we have invested a huge amount of money on books.
Please do everything you can to support your child with this.
Please feel free to ask your child some of the following questions to help them comprehend the text:
- Who are the main characters in the book?
- Where is the story set?
- What has happened in today in the story?
- What do you think will happen next?
Attendance and punctuality
Good attendance and punctuality is really important. If your child is absent we cannot teach them.
Doors open at 8:50am and it is expected that children are in class and ready to learn no later than 9am. Our timetable is jam-packed, so good punctuality will make a big difference. It can take a long time to fully catch up on the missed learning from even a few minutes.
Parents and carers please join us on Class Dojo to see what your child has been up to in class. If you haven't joined yet please ask for an invitation.
Choose your challenge carefully!
Challenges are set every Friday and are due in on Wednesday.
Remember to make them eye-catching.....!
Spellings - New spelling lists are sent out on Mondays and tested on Fridays.
PE - Don't forget your kit!!
Thursday - Gymnastics (indoor dance)
Wednesday - Games (outdoor)
Why not keep gym kits in school for a full half a term to ensure you don't miss out on physical education!
