Yr 5 – Mrs Kinsella
Dear Parents and Guardians of Year 5
I am pleased to confirm that I will be the class teacher for year 5 for the rest of the year. The children will also be taught by Mr Whitbread who is training to be a teacher with the ‘troops to teachers’ programme.
Here is a general overview of the rest of the year ahead in Year 5 for your child.
Summer term topics
History – Local History- The plague village of Eyam
Geography – Volcanoes
Science – Living things and their habitats
PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has an indoor and an outdoor kit, as well as a water bottle.
Reading – Please continue to encourage your child to read at home four times per week. Regular reading practise is essential to ensure children can read fluently and at pace. Please record this reading in their reading diary.
This is given out every Wednesday and due back the following Wednesday
Maths Skills Check, Spellings and Grammar skills
This is given out every Friday and is tested the following Friday
Times Tables – A quick recall of times tables are an essential skill to support understanding in Maths. Children need to practise their tables each week. Please note, times tables will also focus upon related division facts as well. The children are tested every Friday..
Early Morning Opening
The Year 5 classroom will be open from 8.40am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings ( NOT Wednesday) for any child to come in early to school, who would like extra support with their homework or just take some time to settle into the school day – all are welcome!
Our door is always open before and after school, so if you need to see us about anything please do so.
Mrs Kinsella and Mr Whitbread
School closes for the summer break on 21st July 2017 at 3.15pm and re-opens on Tuesday 5th September 2017 at 8.50am.
