Year 5

Welcome to our Year 5 page.

If you need to contact us for any reason, please use our class email:

The Year 5 class teacher is Mrs Friis along with Mrs Bishop. Mrs Wesmoreland and Mrs Willis support some of our children. Mrs Warburton teaches Science on a Thursday morning.

PE is on Tuesday afternoon and the children should come to school in their PE uniform that day.

Daily reading is required  for the children's progress and your involvement is very important. They are given a reading book every Monday to read through the week and return to school on Friday, so they can be given a new one. Please listen to your child read if they still need that support and talk to them about what they have read, which is something all the children need. Each child has a reading log book for you to record their progress and any comments and then sign.

Homework is given for Maths and English weekly via Seesaw or using Mathletics or Bug Club. Each child has an e-book allocated to them on Bug Club for extra reading and access to TTRockstars for times table practice. Short, frequent sessions on these sites will be very beneficial for the children.
