September 2020

Mr Hunt teaches Class Five, supported by Mrs Grime, Mrs Cowling and Mr Gilbert.

PE - Currently we have PE sessions Tuesday and Fridays. Under the current Covid 19 restrictions we request that your child comes into school wearing their PE kit.  Tracksuit bottoms and some sort of tracksuit top or sweat-shirt would be advisable as they will be in kit all day.   Please ensure these items are clearly labelled.

Other COVID 19 Updates 

Water bottles needed as no cups or jugs available at lunchtimes.

Library books will be sent home on a Monday in Year 5 and this will stay at home until completed then returned to school.

Accelerated reader books will stay in school and not travel home.

Homework will be sent out on Fridays and return on Tuesdays so that it can be marked safely under restrictions in time to go out again on Friday.

Any changes we will try to keep you updated as quickly as possible.

We will update this page with overviews of current topics, topic homework, photos of class work and other important information related to Class 5.



Below, are some guidelines for the curriculum content in Year 5 : what a child is currently expected to know / be able to do before entering Y6.
You could use these guidelines to support them at home.
Paper copies have been sent out of the following :
Year 3/4, 5/6 spelling lists
Curriculum Overview
Y5 non-negotiables
Ongoing spelling practice from the Year 3/4, 5/6 sheets.
Ongoing times tables practice.
Ongoing reading : library book,  any book from home - or any other reading material your child is interested in. Any of these 'reads' can be entered into the yellow reading diary and will count towards the bookmark stars.
It is expected for Year 5 that pupils complete two pieces of homework a week:  The maths set each week (usually MyMaths) and English set from the CGP Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling book.  Homework will be set every week on Friday, to be completed by Tuesday Morning the following week.  Homework club is available if access to mymaths is a problem or if your child would prefer to do their homework at school.
If you ever have any questions about any of the above, or about curriculum information, or concerns about your child's progress, please feel welcome to send in a note or come to talk to me at the end of the day. 
Here are the cursive letters that we practice at school. Cursive handwriting is generally thought to be the easiest, most fluent way to write, once mastered. It also aids spelling through 'muscle-memory' when joining.
