Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back!

I hope you all had a delightful Easter holiday and made lots of memories with your families.

This term:

PE - will take place on Tuesday with our Sports Coach - Sean. Please ensure that the correct PE kit is in school on these days, as children will not be allowed to borrow other's kits. Also, as the weather begins the brigten and improve - please being hats, water bottles and sun screen so you stay healthy.

Snack and Lunch- is available to order every morning and can be paid for via the Parent Pay. Lunch will cost £2.30.

Uniform - please ensure children are wearing the correct uniform each day and suitable footwear. Please also make sure that children bring a coat to school even though the weather is warming - we can still experience some chilly days. As mentioned before, make sure water bottles and hats are in school ready for the warmer weather. And if you require sun screen bring this to apply independently.

Reading - in Year 5, I ask that children read 10 minutes every night - both independently and with parents. This will help them to improve their fluency as well as comprehension skills. It is important that home reading is recorded in homework diaries with the title and quanity of pages covered. Please note that if reading is not completed at home, children will be asked to read during their break time.

Homework Diaries - must be brought to school every day in order to check for reading and to convey any information or messages that are needed. It is also important to use these diaries as a form of communication if you have any queries.

Homework - English, My Maths (online) and spelling homework will be issued on a Monday and collected on a Friday. If for any reason there is a problem with the homework, please make me aware using the Homework Diaries and I will work to resolve to problem.

Finally, I look forward to your continued support..

If you need any further information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch, my door is always open!

Kind regards,

Mrs Moores

Reading

Reading is an essential part of the English. Being able to decode, analyse and evaluate a text is really important, not just to reading but also to writing! The more you read - the greater your: vocabulary, grammar and composition. 

The class library has a wide selection of books, both fiction and non-fiction. If you are looking for a good read - come and see me for suggestions.

Remember, reading every night will make a difference to your reading and writing.
