Welcome to Year 5!
Y5 is an important year where children are encouraged to take more responsibility for their own learning, developing the skills of resilience and independence.
Homework is set on a Friday to be returned by Tuesday each week. Some homework, such as my maths, requires an internet connection. Children are allowed to access the computers in school if this is a problem at home.
Reading is key to children's progress in all areas of learning and so children are asked to read regularly. They are now able to take a quiz on their reading book and see how much they have understood. Please support your child with this. Reading out loud also increases a child's fluency so they benefit immensely from being heard read.
PE is a compulsory part of the curriculum so please ensure your child has a full kit. This term is swimming on a Monday and multi-skills on a Tuesday and Friday.
