Year 5C

year 5


Teacher: Mrs Cooper

Teaching Assistants:   Mrs Brown and Miss Williams



P.E. Days Thursday and Friday.

PE is a very important part of the school curriculum and every child should participate.

Please ensure that your child comes with a full P.E kit on both days, for indoor and outdoor P.E.  Heading in to winter, most lesson will still be taught outside.  warm clothing is necessary and a change of sensible footwear.



Homework is set on Friday and is to be returned by Wednesday of the following week.

Please try to attempt your home and come and have a chat before Wednesday if you are unsure of the task.



We are continuing to follow the RWI spelling scheme. Please look in your child’s Spelling Log to see the spelling rule for the week.

Please make sure that your child’s Spelling Log is in school.


Times Tables

By year 5 all the times tables are expected to be known rapidly up to 12 x 12.

It is extremely beneficial that children continue to practice their multiplication tables

because in year 5 we rely heavily on this knowledge to support other areas of our mathematical learning.

Children have access to TT Rockstars to help support them at home.



 Reading diaries will need to be present in school every day.

  Children will have the opportunity to choose a book from our extensive classroom library that they would like to read.

Please record any readings that they do at home in their reading diaries, even if it is not reading a school book as we are continuing with our ‘Reading Race Track’.

I will monitor reading diaries daily so please ensure they are

Examples of your child reading could be; an instruction manual for a game, a favourite magazine, a recipe for baking etc.

During this topic, we will be focusing our learning around music.
