Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!
 
Class Teacher: Mr Gallagher
 
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Lewis & Mrs Smith
 
Please encourage your child to read at least 3 times a week, sometimes with you, sometimes independently. Asking questions about what they have read will really help with their understanding of a text!
 
Every child has access to the TTRockstars website/game to practice their tables regularly. This is a fun way to develop their times tables confidence and competence. Children can also use Topmarks Maths games and Mathletics (the children know their logins)
 
Each week the children receive a set of spellings from the National Curriculum or following spelling rules/ patterns. They will be tested on Fridays.
 
PE days are Monday and Friday afternoons so please can the correct PE kits be brought into school for those two days.
 
 
We encourage children to ROARR which means being Resilient, Open, Aspirational, Reflective and Resourceful in their learning both inside and outside of school. This will make them successful in what they try to achieve as it will help them overcome many barriers.
