Welcome to Year 5

Miss Wood



This term our learning challenge question is -

Is there anybody out there?

Reading books and planners

Please can your child have their reading book and planner in school every day. Feel free to use it as a means of talking to me or asking any questions. 


PE kits

Please can all children wear their P.E kits to school on P.E days.

Our current P.E days are Monday and Friday.

For P.E., please can you ensure that long hair is tied back, and earrings have been taken out.



We expect your child to read each evening. Their progress can be recorded in their reading record and if they read three times a week they will earn ten house points.
Children will be given 10 spellings to learn each week and they will be tested on a Friday . Homework is given out on a Friday and due in on the following Friday.
Please encourage you child to access Doodle Maths/Tables, Rockstar Timetables and Maths Flex at home. 
Learning Challenge

Every term in Y5 all the children will be expected to undertake a project as part of their homework tasks. The projects will be linked to the current learning challenge the children are studying in class.

We encourage children to work on the project weekly as opposed to letting it build up and rushing it days before the hand in date. We encourage parental involvement; any support you can give your child is really invaluable.

This term we would like the children to create a model of a planet and create a fact file to go alongside it.

The project is due Wednesday 20th October. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

We are not afraid to dream too big. Nothing is impossible. When you believe in yourself, you can achieve anything.
