Year 5

(Miss Jefford, Miss Rickett and Mrs Green)

Below are some important reminders:

  • PE DaysMondays 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 for your child to have their reward on Friday
  • 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. 


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.
