Welcome to Year 5
The Year 5 team consists of Mr Dempsey and Mrs Catlow.
We have been impressed by the attitude of our Year 5 class so far and can't wait to make great progress this year. Please keep checking our pages regularly for stories and photos of our amazing work as we would like share our exciting learning journey with you! You will also find links to some useful websites and games for you and your child.
Our themes will change half termly and our Science, Art, DT, History, Geography and Computing will be taught through our cross curricular theme.
English, Maths, Handwriting, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar are taught daily.
Banded books will be changed as and when required, these books will be at the level your child is reading at. You can help your child by reading with them and asking them about what is happening in the book.
Please practice times tables and mental calculations at home with your child, this will help them as your child progresses in their mathematical learning.
This year the children will have their own targets in their books and we will be helping our children work towards and through their targets in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.
Our PE days are Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoon - please make sure your child has their P.E t-shirt, shorts and black pumps for this.
Homework will go home on a Friday and please ensure that your child practices their timetables and spelling regularly.
Children need to have their reading bags in school everyday. It is important you read with your child daily and sign their reading diary.
I would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to teaching your child over the year.
If there is anything that you would like to ask or any concerns you may have, please feel free to see Mr Dempsey after school.
Year 5 are going to reach for the stars!
