Welcome to Year 5!
Our team consists of:
Mr Western - Class Teacher
Mrs Chapman - Teaching Assistant
Mrs Tanner - Teaching Assistant
Our PE lessons this half term will be Games on a Friday afternoon, please make sure you wear PE kit in to school on these days.
Home Learning will be issued on a Friday to be completed and kept at home. They will be given a weekly LSCWC spelling pattern sheet and activity sheet along with a Maths or English activity sheet to be completed in pencil or blue pen.
Although Y5 are no longer using the Renaissance Reading scheme, they are still expected to read at least 2 / 3 times a week at home.
The PTFA have again purchased a great times table package for the school called 'TT Rockstars'. There are lots of different areas the children could go into including the ‘Garage’ or ‘Studio’. The Garage is a training mode where they work through the tables (recommended) and the Studio is random questions up to the 12x12 times table. Ultimately, we hope this makes learning the times tables fun while they become more fluent and knowledgeable in their times table recall. They can also earn ‘coins’ to update their avatar rock star!
If you have any concerns, or question, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached through Class Dojo, or the school telephone number. We are usually in the playground most days after school , or from 8.30am in the morning.
Mr Western & Mrs Chapman
