Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Welcome to the new school year!

I hope everyone has had a safe and an enjoyable summer. 


My name is Miss Jefford and I will be your child's/ children's class teacher. I am excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and looking forward to a happy and productive school year. 


This upcoming year will be very exciting and fun. Your child will be learning so many new things.


Below are some important reminders:

  • PE DaysTuesdays and Fridays (Come to school wearing your PE kit on both days).



  • Spellings will be set on every Monday and the children will be tested on Thursdays
  • Read and have homework diaries signed daily
  • Log onto TTRS to practice timetables for a test on Fridays.
  • Topic Homework will be set on Fridays on Purple Mash and will be due on Mondays



Your child will be given a list of up to 10 words to learn every week. Some words will be from the Year 5 and 6 Statutory spellings and others will be important topic vocabulary. If you would like some fun ideas on how to learn spellings, I can suggest strategies to try. 



Please listen/ or have your child read to a sibling/ friend/ adult at least five times a week for (approximately 15 minutes). Make a record of this in their homework diary. If you wish to make a comment about their reading e.g. if they are find the book too easy or too challenging, we can change their books. Their books will be changed on a weekly basis (every Friday) and their homework diaries will be checked too. 



We will have PE on Tuesday (Indoors) and Friday (Outdoors). Please make sure your child wears the appropriate PE Kit for these days. 


If you have any concerns or worries regarding your child/ children, please contact the school office or write a message in your child's homework planner and I will happily arrange a time to discuss/ meet with you.
