Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Teacher: Mrs York

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Paris


Mrs Parris and I are delighted to be teaching your children this year and are looking forward to getting to know them better over the coming weeks. They have all made a positive start to Year 5, demonstrating many of the school’s core values this early in the term, which is fantastic to see.

Please have a look at our Autumn Term overview to see which areas of study Year 5 will be focusing on this term and how you can support your child at home.  Additionally, there is a weekly timetable, which will inform you which subjects are being taught and when. Please note that our current PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays, and your child is expected to arrive at school in their PE kit on those days.

English (including spellings) and Maths homework will be set each week on a Friday and will be expected in the following Tuesday. If your child does not complete their homework or forgets to bring it in, this will need to be completed during break.

All students are expected to read every day at home, and it would be greatly beneficial if some of this time could be spent reading to/with an adult. Each child has been given a day that they will have their reading records checked and signed to ensure that home-reading is consistent and to develop their organisational skills.

Finally, please ensure that your child brings in a named water bottle every day so that they can keep hydrated in school.

Many thanks,

Mrs York
