Reading homework 

Children are expected to read at least 5 times a week for approximately 20 minutes each time.  During this time, they should record their own comments in their reading journals.  They may choose to read to themselves, but are advised to read out loud to an adult at least once a week.  We ask that parents sign the last box of every page in their child's reading record so that this is being monitored at home as well as at school.  It is imperative in Year 5 that children are reading regularly to help improve their writing and to prepare them for future years.  It is equally as important for them to discuss and reflect on their understanding of the story.  This is done in their reflective comments but should also be addressed through discussions with adults at home.  If you would like some support on helping your child with their reading. please see their class teacher - we are always happy to help! 

 

Spelling homework

Children need to practise their set spellings 5 times per week and record in their ‘home spelling books’ following the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check format. Spelling tests will be administered on Monday mornings.

Useful Information 

 

  • Year 5 PE days are usually on Wednesdays and Thursdays, however children need to have their PE kits in school every day of the week as we may take PE opportunities at other points in the week should we feel this would benefit the children.

 

  • Weekly music lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will be continuing their knowledge of how to play the recorder (from Year 3) but will focus more on intonation, reading sheet music and learning different tunes.

 

  • If your child has anything they wish to discuss, please encourage them to approach their teacher first. In Year 5 we strive to achieve greater independence.  We operate an open-door policy and welcome parents and guardians to approach and discuss any concerns with their child’s teacher. Many thanks for your support in this busy academic year.
