Hello and welcome to the Year 5 class page.

 

Year 5 Staff

 

Miss Beardsmore, Miss Clarke and Mr Woodward are looking forward to getting to know you all.  Other members of staff that will be involved with the teaching of the children this year include: Mrs Williams and Mrs Dorham.  We are looking forward to an action packed year of learning!

 

How can you help your child?

 

You can help your child by:

  • Signing up to Class Dojo to track their progress in school and to check for any messages from your child's class teacher.
  • Listening to them read their reading book every day and signing their record for us to check every morning.
  • Helping your child with their weekly homework and spellings - these are handed out every Friday to be looked at/tested the following Friday. 
  • Ensuring that your child has their PE/swimming kit in school on the appropriate days
