Year 5

Welcome to Year 5’s class page…

Welcome to the Year 5 page of our website! Below you will find lots of useful information about our class as well as what we have been up to.

My name is Mr. Knight and I am the class teacher. My assistant is Mr. Carroll. Mrs. Spacey and Miss Mallinson also teach Year 5 on Fridays.

We work extremely hard in Year 5, whilst having fun, and are becoming more and more independent in every way.

This term’s Stars!

Now that we are allowed to have assemblies together again, we have restarted our Star Award Assembly on Friday morning. This is a very special assembly where Mr. Knight tells us how amazing one of our friends has been this week – our parents are even allowed to come! Well done to all of our recent Star Award winners.

Things to know about…

Reading (everyday) – Your child should read at home every day (independently or to an adult) record it in their Reading Diary and get it signed or initialled by an adult at home. It is really helpful if you can chat to your child about what they are reading, what their opinion about the book is and get them to make predictions about what will happen next based on what they have read.
Please make sure your child’s Reading Diary and reading books are in everyday!

Learn spellings (everyday) – New lists are given on Friday for your child to learn for a test on the following Friday.

Maths times tables (everyday) – Each week, the children are given a times table to focus on learning ready for a test on the following Friday. If your child knows their times tables very well, they will be tested on decimal numbers. For example, 0.6 x 3=    23.5 x 4 =   After Christmas, we look at problem solving and reasoning questions using our times tables knowledge.

English and Maths Homework – English and Maths homework will be given on a Friday to be in the following Friday. The homework will be based on work done in class that week and you should not spend more than 20-30 minutes on each piece. We will work through any misunderstandings.
