Welcome To The Year 5 Page

We would like to welcome you back to what we know will be an EPIC Year.  We hope you are well and that the children are ready for another busy school year.

The Year 5 team this year are:

Class 11 - Miss Thomas 

Class 12 - Miss Shera 

Mrs Mayow, Mrs Keddle and Mr Hughes will also be supporting the children' learning, everyday. 

Reading

As a school we love to read and think this is really important.  It is the expectation that children read for 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week.  Please ensure that you sign your child’s reading record each day that they read.  The children must then return their record to school each day in order for their home reading to be recorded. The children can borrow books from their classroom or the school library. The children should be completing accelerated reader quizzes, when they have finished their book, and are working towards prizes in their class. As well as this, the children can earn badges for each time they read at home.

You can access accelerated reader here -

This Term we will be reading The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie, The Boy In the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate Dicamillo, and The Strangeworlds Travel Agency by L.D. Lapinsky 

 

Times Table Rockstars

This year, there will be a big focus on times tables in Year 5. Your children will have their logins and instructions on how to access the site sent home. There will be lots of exciting battles and challenges set on Times Table Rockstars to ensure learning them is made fun.
