Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 with Mrs Mole and Mrs Bailey


Reading and Spelling

Spelling tests are every Friday morning.  The children are given their spellings at the beginning of each half term and are stapled into their Spelling Books.  Please remind your child to have their Spelling Book in school everyday so the children can practise their spellings at school as well as at home.


The children need to be reading at home at least four times a week for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.  When your child has read (either aloud to you or to themselves) please sign their Reading Diary.  Asking them questions about what they have read will help their understanding and comprehension of their book.  The children don't have to read only their school reading book - mix it up a bit and encourage different genres and a range of materials.  Record these in their Reading Diary too.  The Reading Diaries will be checked on Monday mornings to ensure your child is reading at home.  Like the Spelling Books, please remind your child to bring their Reading Diary to school every day.



PE is on Thursday afternoons.  Please send your child into school in their school PE kit ready for the afternoon lesson.



We will send regular Marvellous Me messages to keep you up-to-date with any important information, as well as to celebrate children's amazing achievements, academically or socially.  


If you do have any questions, then please talk to us at the end of the day, when we will be happy to help.
