Welcome to Year 5's class page. In Year 5, the teacher is Miss Woodhouse; Miss Dymond teaches for half the day on Wednesdays for PPA cover. The Teaching Assistant that helps with our learning is Mrs Goff. We also have Mrs Weir who works one to one with a child, as well as Mrs Bland and Mrs Souyad who help children with their learning. 
PE Days
Our PE days on Tuesday and Thursday, but please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school every day.
Home Learning
Home learning is set on a Tuesday and handed in on a 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.
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 :)
