Year 5

Who are we? 

My name is Miss Moody and I am the year five teacher. Mr Hague and Mrs Bailey are our teaching assistants and will be working with individuals and groups of children throughout the year.  


In year 5 we love to read! We start each day with a reading session, where we build and deepen our understanding of different content domains. Reading with your child as often as possible is very beneficial. Your child will have an opportunity to change their books in schools, linked to their reading level. If you child is reading at home, they will earn a raffle ticket each week for our prize draw in our Gold Award Celebration. All children will have the opportunity to read to an adult in school each week.  


The children will be doing PE on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days. For health and safety reasons, your child should not wear jewellery on these days, especially earrings. Due to weather, PE lessons may be indoors or outdoors and this can change regularly. Please ensure children have appropriate clothing for both, including trainers.  


Homework is set every Friday and is due back on a Thursday. This will include a piece if maths or grammar that we have been focussing on in lessons that week, a times table grid, and our weekly spelling that the children will then be tested on the following week. There is also an expectation that children read daily and practice their times tables on a daily basis, where each child has access to Times Table Rockstars. In the wider curriculum, your child will be provided with their knowledge organiser that gives children all of the essential knowledge they must have to deepen their understanding in school.
