Year 5 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Y5!
We hope you have had an enjoyable summer and we are looking forward to getting to know you throughout the academic year.
Your class teacher will be Mr Moore and you will also be supported by Mrs Cullinan throughout the week. You will also have Mr Edmondson for computing as well as specialist coaches for some PE lessons.
Mrs Cullinan and I are sure this year will be a great one. It will be full of hard work, enthusiasm, fun and friendships. We have an exciting year planned and we cannot wait to get started.
Reading in Y5
Children will read daily in school. This may be in the form of independent reading, guided/group reading or reading as a class. To support your child’s reading progression, please continue to read with them at home on a daily basis where possible. As a guide, your child should aim to read one book at home per week.
Spellings in Y5
Children in Y5 will be given a list of spellings per week. These are taken from the Y5/6 statutory spelling list. It is important that your child learns both how to spell these words and also the meanings of them at home. In school, we will support this process with a range of activities including how the words can be used in a coherent sentence.
The spellings will be handed out on a Monday, ready for the spelling test which will take place on a Friday.
Homework in Y5
Each child will be given two pieces of homework per week. There will be a piece of English homework and a piece of maths homework. This will be handed out on Fridays and the tasks explained. This will give your child the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about the work set.
Homework should be placed into the homework tray by Wednesday. If your child is finding a piece of work difficult, it is up to them to speak to myself or Mrs Cullinan before this point so we have time to help and support them.
Below is a list of reminders for a usual week-
Monday - (Read) Spellings list given and children to wear PE kit to school.
Tuesday - (Read)
Wednesday - (Read) English and maths homework to be handed in.

If you require any more information, a concern you may have or any great news to celebrate please contact Mr Moore. We are looking forward to a great year and hope your child has an enjoyable year in Y5!
