Year 5

 

Welcome to Year 5's class page! 

 

Your class teachers are Mrs James and Miss Morris and our LSA's are Miss Newman and Miss Maynard.

 

PE is on Tuesdays (Upbeat dance) and Fridays (Hockey), please wear suitable clothing to school on these days.

 

Our Topic for this half term is "Third Rock from the Sun". 

 

Please bring book bags and water bottles everyday. Reading books will be changed on a Friday but can be changed sooner if needed. 

 

Spellings

Spellings are sent out weekly on www.spellingshed.com, check and practice them for our test every Friday! Spellings are also uploaded onto Seesaw every Monday morning. A paper copy of spellings are also given out every Friday. 

 

Reading 

You each have a reading book and reading diary. Please bring this in every day. We will change your reading books every Friday but we can change them sooner if needed. We will be giving 2 Dojos every time your book is signed and returned to say you have read to an adult! You can also access Bug Club at home where you can listen to and read books. You can also listen to books based on Space on these websites:

 

If you have any problems or questions, please get in touch via the Seesaw app and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

 

In the event of your child having to self isolate please see the "Self Isolation Planner" for our class. 

 

Thanks

Mrs James and Miss Morris

Spellings

Don't forget to practise your spellings every week, you will have a spelling test every Friday.

Find the meanings of the words, put them into sentences. 

You could practise them in a fun way - rainbow writing, write with your 'wrong hand', pyramid writing, chalk them on the pavement, make a word search with them or bubble writing. What other fun ways could you practise them?
