in Year 5
The Year 5 team would like to welcome you all to a very exciting time in your school lives as you join upper key stage 2. As the children move into Year 5, the expectations and responsibilities increase, with a greater emphasis on independent learning. After feedback from our previous Year 5 pupils, we have worked hard to ensure we will be delivering exciting and engaging topics. Our aim is to inspire pupils through more ‘wow moments’ throughout the year which we hope will support pupils to achieve to their full potential and engage them with their learning.
As pupils join upper key stage 2, the National Curriculum demands increase too. Reading is a key life skill and supports all literacy skills. In Year 5, we take reading very seriously and our expectations of pupils are as follows:
- You should read at home five times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes. Three should be out loud to an adult and the other two can be independent.
- Reading should be recorded in your reading record and must be signed by an adult.
- Reading records should be handed in every Monday morning for an adult to sign off. Pupils who hand their record in on time will be rewarded with credits to spend at the credit shop.
If a child is unable to read 5 times a week, they will be supported and read to a member of staff during break or lunch time for 20 minutes.
Pupils will be set homework every week. Homework will be set every Friday and due in the following Wednesday. The guidelines are as follows:
- One Topic piece of homework will be set.
- One Maths piece of homework will be set.
- 10 Spellings where scores will be recorded and credits rewarded.
- Pupils should spend a maximum of 30 minutes on each piece of their homework.
- If pupils are finding their homework difficult, they should not stress. Ask your class teacher for help. We won’t be cross if you don’t understand.
