Welcome to Year 5!
We want this year to be an exciting one - are you up for the challenge?
We're all one big team, with our year group is made up of the following:
Class 9: Mrs Mudd, Mrs Pallister and Mrs Robertonson
Class 10: Miss Stark and Mr Sinclair
Class 11: Mr Evans and Miss Thow
Class 12: Miss Allcoat and Mrs McMahon
Over the course of the year, there will be other adults working in and around Year 5 to provide support where necessary.
If at any point throughout the year, you are concerned about your child, or would like a friendly chat with a member of staff, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher. We are always happy to help and appreciate the ongoing support we receive from families.
There is lots to do this year, and we are looking forward to getting to know you all better. Our topics this year will include rainforests, Earth and space, and Anglo-Saxons.
PE will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for all Year 5 classes. The children must ensure that their PE Kit is in school for them to take part fully. We would advise that PE Kits are left in school each week, and that they are taken home at the end of each term for washing.
Each term we will issue a knowledge organiser, outlining an overview of the topics that we are teaching so you can also support the children with their learning at home.
We would really appreciate your help this year with the following on a weekly basis: listening to your child read (at least three times), recall of times tables (up to 12 x 12), spelling practice, homework and signing their home-school books. It's really important all children bring their home-school books every day!
Please make use of our Year 5 Home Learning Launchpad https://uk.airhead.io/app/launchpads/9w-kCFBwHkOGbkdRoMnI5A, and the VLE (https://studfall-northants.secure-dbprimary.com/service/util/login?path=%2Fnorthants%2Fprimary%2Fstudfall&theme=Login.action) where tasks will be set and email can be sent and received.
