Welcome to Year 5
Class Teacher: Miss Wainwright
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Nicol/Mrs Brooks
Key information for Year 5
►Reading - Reading underpins all of the learning that takes place at Holy Family and it's at the heart of our curriculum. To support reading, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book each evening and that their reading planner is signed by an adult. At Holy Family, we encourage children to choose their own read for pleasure book. I am really looking forward to hearing about the books and comics they have been reading over the holidays.
►Spellings -New spelling rules and spelling patterns will be taught each week. Every Friday, all children will receive a new spelling list and then we will have a spelling test the following Friday. This allows children to have a week to learn the new spelling rules. As well as recalling spelling rules, it is very important that the children understand new vocabulary and know how to apply this in a sentence. Therefore, children will need to apply the given spellings into their own written sentences and hand this in alongside their spellings.
►Homework - All children will be given weekly English or Maths homework. The given homework will alternate from English to Maths each week. Children will receive homework each Friday and they are required to hand this in on the following Friday.
►PE - PE will take place every Monday and Wednesday. All children must have the correct school PE kit of white t-shirt and black shorts. (Track suits may be worn as the weather turns colder). Please ensure that all children have trainers to enable them to fully participate.
Thank you for your continued support.
Please don't hesitate to contact me at school if you have any questions or concerns.
