Year 5

~ Welcome to Year 5 ~ 


Your Teachers are Miss East (5E, Year Group Leader), Mrs Ignatov/Miss McAnally (5I) and Miss Nixon (5N). We are supported by Mrs Cook (HLTA),  Mrs Wiseman (LSA) and Miss Holland (TA).


Reading for at least 15 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will also be expected as part of your child's homework. It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. In Year 5, it is important to do a mixture of independent reading, reading with an adult and for your child to independently record their opinions about the book in their Reading Record. 

Homework is set weekly and due in the following week. Homework will usually consist of Spellings and a piece of Maths homework. Occasionally, children may be asked to create a project to present in class. 

Thank you for your continued support.
