Welcome to Year 5
Autumn Overview 2023-23
Welcome to Year 5
Teacher: Mr. Alexis
Teaching Assistant: Mrs. James & Mrs. Paloja
We are delighted to welcome your children back from the summer break into their new class. We look forward to embarking on our journey of 'New Beginnings' as we navigate the year ahead!
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 their break.
All students are expected to read every day at home for a sustained period and record evidence in their reading journal. 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 when they will have their reading records checked and signed to ensure that home-reading is consistent. Additionally their books journals will be collected daily to ensure they are reading daily as well as to develop their organisational skills. READERS ARE LEADERS!
Finally, please ensure that your child brings in a named water bottle every day so that they can keep hydrated in school.
We look forward to working alongside you to create effective contributors, successful learners and responsible citizens.
