If your child is home self-isolating and is able to complete school work, please head to the Year 5 Google Classroom page, where your child will be sent Maths, SPAG and Wider Curriculum work to complete. Please remember that they can also use TT Rockstars and Accelerated Reader at home, as well as completing their 3 reads per week.
Welcome to Year Five!
We look forward to teaching your children and wish all of Year Five a fun, interesting and engaging year!
The year group is divided into 3 classes. The class teachers are:
Mr Cole- Kites Mrs Grant - Sparrowhawks Miss Irons - Eagles
Our teaching assistants are:
Mrs Studley Mrs Heckford Mrs Teasdale Mrs Watkins Mrs Box
If you would like to discuss your child’s learning or share any pastoral information (e.g. changes in circumstances at home, friendships) please contact the team on AskYear5@longfleet.coastalpartnership.co.uk , noting in the subject heading which teacher you would like to get in touch with. We will endeavour to get back to you as quickly as possible during the working week. For all non-learning matters (e.g. payments, clubs, pick-up arrangements), please contact Office@longfleet.coastalpartnership.co.uk
From the Summer Term, our PPA day is changing to Tuesday. We will be doing athletics and cricket with Mr Brown and Mrs Jones. As the weather warms, please ensure your child has appropriate sun-block on in the summer months. Children who have clubs after school are welcome to come in wearing their PE kit.
Reading records and reading books are expected to be in school every day.
During a week children are expected to complete at least 3 reads at home and these must be recorded in the child’s reading record and signed by parent/guardian.
The reading record will be checked each Thursday and if the 3 reads are not completed your child will spend their Friday break time reading their book in Mr Cole's class!
Buddens / Poole Park:
Below you will see information regarding the Buddens trip (with Mr Cole) as well as Rockley's own video, showing you some of the activities and facilities on offer. Information about the single-day Poole Park trip will be coming soon (for those not coming to Buddens).
This will consist of the following:
Spellings: There will be 3 sets of spellings each week. White, Yellow and Purple group. All sets will be placed on Google Classroom on Thursday morning and children will be tested on Tuesday morning. They will always have the dictation on Google Classroom, as well as a Purple Mash quiz to help them.
Maths: Our maths homework is now set on Freckle. Each child's group has a specific code which they should have with them on their log-in card. Each week, 10 questions will be set in their "rucksack" that they will need to complete by the following Tuesday. If your child scores below 70% in these 10 questions - they should attempt the questions again.
SPAG: Each week the children will be set 10 questions on SPAG.com. This needs to be completed by Tuesday.
Computing: This will be set on Google Classroom. A video will be shown to help your child through the homework that has been set.
Your child also has the option to complete TT Rockstars challenges (as many times per week as the like) and also to complete Accelerated Reader quizzes once they have completed a book.
All usernames and passwords should be on your child's log-in card. They have a blue one for school (kept in their Chromebook bag) and a yellow one for home.
Please click on the link to view our Year 5 Must Reads. These are texts specifically chosen for their rich vocabulary and their ability to "hook" the reader in. By the end of Year Five, all of these texts will have been accessed by the children: some in guided reading, others in our class reading time. They are also in our "special book boxes" if the children want to take them out for themselves!
