Welcome to year 5, Elder class. Taught by Miss Preston and assisted by Miss McIllmurray and Mrs True.
You will find us upstairs in key stage 2.
Each child will be given an accelerated reader book to read in school and at home, so please ensure your child brings their book to school every day. At the end of the book, they will take a comprehension quiz on the iPad to review their learning. It would be beneficial to your child, if you ask questions throughout the book to ensure they are understanding what they have read. Once the quiz has been taken, they will change their book. Please sign your child's reading records and write comments if necessary, which will be checked every morning. It is recommended that a Year 4 child reads for 20 minutes a day
Homework is given out on a Thursday and is due back by the following Thursday. Homework may be given in their books or set online- we are using Mathletics, TT Rocks and Read Theory this year. (Spelling tests are on a Friday.) We will set the children spellings to practise each week on spelling shed. Any problems, or if you do need a printed copy, please see Miss Preston.
