The Year 5 Team
5HD - Mrs Hickson and Mrs Devlin
5PJ - Mr Jenkinson
Both classes - Mrs Cooper and Miss Brown
Maths: Maths homework will be given out on a Friday and is due in the following Friday. This will usually be an arithmetic booklet, which is really good for practising the core knowledge needed within the Upper KS2 maths curriculum.
Times Tables: We encourage children to play on Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) each week. Ideally, this should be a small amount of daily practice, following the 'little but often' rule. Children have been given their personal logins, which can be found in their reading records, to access at home.
Reading: It is expected that children read at least 3 times a week and have their record signed as evidence of this. (It would be great, however, if we could hit 5 times a week now the children are in Year 5!) Mrs Cooper and Miss Brown check the reading records on a daily basis so please ensure they come into school each day.
Spellings: Will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
Physical Education (PE)
Children will swim for the first two weeks of this half term and will then have one formal Real PE session each week. Please make sure kit is in school after swimming!
