Welcome to Year 5
The Year 5 Team:
Miss Piponides is the class teacher supported by Mrs Littlewood ( Focused Provision). Miss Cao will take the class when Miss Piponides has non-contact time on Wednesdays.
PE & Swimming
PE will now be taking place on Thursday and Swimming on Monday afternoons: Please ensure that children have their PE and Swimming kits in school on the relevant days.
PE kits consist of black shorts, a white top (no logo please), suitable trainers or pumps and all jewellery must be removed. I will suggest that children should have a pair of plain black jogging bottoms or leggings and a fleece for our outdoor sessions.
Swimming kits consist of swimsuits and tight swimming shorts including a towel in a swimming bag.
The Year 5 homework policy is as follows:
Children are given spellings every Friday and will be tested upon these the following Friday. In order to help children learn their spellings, parental/carer involvement is essential. Children are also expected to read 5 or more times a week for approximately, 20 minutes. Please can children endure that their reading records are signed.
The school has bought into Times Tables Rockstars and every child has a username and password. Children are expected to use this online resource to help them learn and consolidate all their times tables: https://ttrockstars.com/login
Other home learning tasks are included on the ‘Homework Menu - Ancient Greek’. The more homework points the children achieve, the better the reward.
In order for us to monitor and inform you on reading, homework tasks and school events, each child has been issued with a personal planner. It is an easy and effective way for us to communicate. Please sign the Home/School agreement.
Therefore, please check your child’s planner on a daily basis. Children must look after their planners because if they lose/damage them, a new one will be issued at a cost of £3.
As a reminder, the school bell goes at 8:45am in the morning, children should be lined up on the playground at this time. Morning break is at 10:20-10.35am so please can you either provide your child with a mid-morning snack or money for toast/drink.
If you have any further questions or worries, please do not hesitate to contact the Year 5 team!
