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
Our PE day is Thursday. This term (Autumn) we are swimming, so the children will come in wearing their PE kit and bring in their swimming bag. If your child attends an after school club, they may also come in wearing their PE kit on that day.
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:
In June, the children can either take part in a 3-day residential to Buddens or a one-day activities adventure at Poole Park. More information about these trips will be available soon.
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.
Maths: This will also be set on Thursday on Google Classroom. The sheet will include websites to follow and practice questions to complete. Again, the test will be on a Tuesday morning.
SPAG: Each week the children will be set 10 questions on SPAG.com. This needs to be completed by Tuesday.
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.
TTR, Purple Mash and SPAG.com usernames and passwords will be in your child's Reading Record.
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!
