Otters - Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Class teachers: Miss Stefanie Florczyk (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) and Mrs Sarah Day (Thursday and Friday)


Spelling and Homework.

We are keen enable the children to continue their learning at home in 4 different ways:

1) Pick and mix homework - the new grid for after half term is below.  We have three hand in dates before Christmas.  Some of the options are short and some are much longer.

2) Spellings - we will have spelling tests each fortnight.  The spelling words are all on a theme which we look at together in class.  They get harder through the list. If it seems tricky then please concentrate on spellings 1-5.  The children get some marks for getting the focus of the words correct.  Eg 1/2 a mark for 'ture' even if the rest of 'signature' isn't correct.

3) Reading records - please hand in reading records every Monday.  

4) Mathletics - we have a school subscription to mathletics.  All year 5 children have activities for them which will complement their learning in school.

Recommended books (age appropriate)
