Welcome to the new school year. Your Year 5 teacher is Miss Shire and your Teaching Assistant is Miss Jacqueline Hayden. We are very excited about welcoming you all back on Monday 7th September 2020. We have been busy making arrangements for the children’s return to school and look forward to be seeing you all back!
Year 5's P.E. lessons will take place on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has the correct P.E. kit, including plimsolls/trainers, to participate in the lessons.
Reading Records needs to be signed daily as part of the Home-School Reading Agreement.
Homework in Year 5 is given out on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday (unless stated otherwise in special circumstances). Please make sure you child brings their homework in on time, as it is beneficial to our learning at the time. In addition, please ensure your child learns their spelling list for the week as there is a weekly spelling test.
How to contact Miss Shire
Hello Year 5,
I hope you are all slowly getting into the routine of home learning. I thought it would be lovely to see some of the home learning that has been going on over the past few days. If you would like to share any of your AMAZING work you have produced, feel free to email with your name and I can share this on our 'WOW WORK' classroom section, which will be updated weekly. If you unsure how to email this across, ask an adult or an older sibling to help you with this. I am looking forward to see your fantastic work :)
You can still ask me any questions or share your concerns/worries on our Google classroom Stream and i will respond as soon as possible.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Firstly, I would like to thank you for your continued support over these recent difficult days. You will have heard the Prime Minister announcing that from Friday schools will be closed until further notice. I have prepared and given out home learning resources so that your child can continue to do school work at home, practising and consolidating learning, and developing key English and Maths skills. For those children who were absent this week, we have posted this all to you so you should receive this very shortly. In the pack, there will also be
guidance from the me which contains links to some useful learning websites and instructions on how much work is expected daily.
I do understand that not everyone will be able to access the internet as older children will need to have priority. Nor do I recommend your child is looking at a screen all day. The Home Learning Pack and the homework newsletter should provide enough to keep them going for at least two weeks. Do please support us by helping your child/children to set up a home learning routine.
Try to stick to school timings as much as possible. I have outlined an example based on the school day below.
8:00 Breakfast and fun activities
9:00 -9.30: Handwriting and spelling practice
9.30-10.00: Reading and reading activities
10:30-11.00: English activities (writing, grammar, drama)
11.00-11.30: Maths activities
12:00- 1:00: Lunch time
1:00- 2:00: Physical exercise (outdoor if possible)
2:00 - 3.30: Time to work: Art, Science, Topic, music, cooking, designing
3:30 More exercise.
Please keep an eye on our classroom page website as I will regulary set out work for the children. I know this is an anxious time for all. I look forward to seeing more positive outcomes with the coronavirus situation and returning to normal school life.
I hope you all stay safe and well and I will be thinking of you.
