Welcome to Year 5!


Home Learning

Good morning my lovelies! Can you believe you've only got two and a half weeks left in Year 5? Time has certainly flown since lockdown and I know you've continued to maintain your great work ethic at home. 

Timetable template/example
Parents/carers- you will find answers attached to the worksheets so please ensure your child cannot see them when they are completing tasks and then upload marked work to Seesaw.

Missing you all so very much, 

Miss Redmond

Our class teacher is Miss Redmond.

We are lucky to have support from Mrs Smith as well as Mrs Gawne-Sheridan teaching us on Thursdays. Fran Sixsmith also teaches us how to play the keyboard.

Year 5 is an exciting year where we aim high and love learning! We are in Upper Key Stage 2 so we should be setting a great example to the rest of the school.

Important things to remember:

  • Please ensure your child has a labelled PE kit in school every day. PE lessons are every Monday and Tuesday. 
  • Keyboard lessons are on a Thursday morning with Fran Sixsmith.
  • Homework is handed out on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday. Please ensure their homework is presented to a high standard. If your child is having any problems with their homework, please ask me for help as soon as possible.
  • Homework will include:
    Spellings - spelling test will be every Thursday.
    Maths - linked to our learning that week or times tables.
    English - e.g. reading comprehension or grammar practise. 
  • It is really important that your child reads regularly - they should all read at least three times each week. All reading should be noted in reading records and an adult must sign this once a week. Reading and discussing the book with your child will develop reading comprehension skills too.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to see me at the end of the school day.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Miss Redmond
