Year 5 Information
Miss Katarina Woodhouse
Miss Hayley Dymond
Mrs Jean Goff
Year 5 and 6 Teaching Assistant
Welcome to Year 5's class page. In Year 5, the teacher is Miss Woodhouse; Miss Dymond teaches for half the day on Tuesdays for PPA cover. The Teaching Assistant that helps with our learning is Mrs Goff.
Our PE days for the Spring Term are on Tuesday and Thursday, but please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school every day - this should also be labelled with your child's name. The children will also be doing Forest School with Mr Slater and Miss Moore this half-term.
Home learning is set on a Monday and handed in on the following Monday. We set English and maths, with the expectation that children will also be learning spellings from their Year 5 and 6 spelling list. Over holidays, the children may be set more practical tasks linked to their topic. The children are also expected to read for at least 30 minutes a day, and then reflect on their reading in their own reading diaries.
Weekly spellings will usually be sent home on a Friday and then tested the following Friday.
Please support and encourage your child to learn their Year 5 and 6 spellings. A list of the spellings can be downloaded below. There is also a copy of the Year 3 and 4 words to support consolidation of their knowledge. There is also a range of strategies to support the learning of these (please see below).
Thank you for your support in your child's learning :)
