Welcome to Year Five
Mrs Wilde and Mrs Vaughan help the children in Year 5 with their learning
Things to bring to school
Every day: homework diary and reading book
Wednesday – completed learning log
Every Tuesday/Wednesday - PE Kit (take home every Friday)
- There will be a learning log challenge that will be set every Wednesday, which should be returned to school the following Wednesday.
- We would like the children to work on maths every week, any day they choose. This could be IXL or learning their times tables.
- Children are given spellings (every Monday) to learn at home and they need to return their spelling books by the following Monday.
- We also expect that the children will be spending time each week reading.
We ask that you please initial all completed homework for your child in their homework diaries. Thank you.
