Welcome to Year 5! This is an incredibly important year as the children move ever closer to the top of the school, bringing with it new expectations, responsibilities and learning. By Year 5, the children are amongst the oldest in the school and with that comes the responsibility of setting an example to the younger children, working hard and contributing to a successful school environment.

Here are some helpful reminders in order to make Year 5 as enjoyable as possible:

Reading: The children should be reading daily, with an adult or guardian whenever possible or independently if necessary. They should record their reading in their reading record whenever they have read and bring that reading record into school every day. Children who have not read, or do not have a record of their reading for the previous day, will be asked to read for five minutes at break time.

Spellings: Spellings are handed out on Monday and include a combination of the Year 5/6 spelling words and key words relating to the current topic being studied in class. Children should be practising their spellings daily and are tested on their spellings on Friday.

Time Tables: Children in Year 5 are expected to know their times tables up to 12x12. They then progress onto using their knowledge of times tables in a variety of different ways, for example using multiplication facts to find the corresponding division fact. The children are given a times table to focus on each Monday and will be tested each Friday.

Homework: The children should complete at least one piece of homework from the home learning grid each week. This should be brought in by Thursday to ensure that it can be considered for the awarding of a merit to the child on Friday.

PE: Year 5 has PE on a Monday morning and correct kit should be worn for each lesson. This includes the TSM PE top (in the appropriate house colour), shorts (of suitable length) and suitable foot wear (trainers or plimsolls).

Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions, or wish to arrange a meeting to raise any concerns, do not hesitate to come find me after school. Alternatively, send a letter in with your child and I will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.
