Welcome to Year 5 2021-2022
Class Teachers – Mrs. J McKinstry & Mrs. J Redfern
Learning Support Assistant – Mrs. C Haigh
Welcome back to our new school year 2021-2022!
On this page, you will find out about the exciting learning that takes place in our class, what we have been up to, and useful information for learning at home.
Information for Parents/Carers
Your child will be given homework that will enhance the curriculum that they are following in school and will help to improve their learning. We greatly appreciate parental support and encourage parents to become involved in their children’s learning. Research has shown that support from home significantly improves a child’s achievement in school.
To help your child develop a love of reading, all children are given daily opportunities to read either during Shared Reading, Independent Reading, or Reading for Pleasure sessions. Your child is encouraged to bring books of their own choice or choose a book from our class library as well as bring their school reading book to school every day.
All children will read with the class teacher at least once a week. The expectation is that your child should read for 20 minutes per day to develop their pace, fluency, and understanding of a range of texts. Using Accelerated Reader quizzes, your child will complete a short comprehension quiz after they have completed reading their home reading book.
The 2014 curriculum for Mathematics states that children are expected to know ALL times table facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. Multiplication tables will, therefore, be part of the mathematics homework each week.
Year 5 will have PE on TUESDAYS this half term. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school every week.
