Welcome to Year 5S (Spring Term)

Your Year 5 team is Mr Emes and Mrs Smith, along with Mrs McDonough.

Your Class Councillor is Lauren Nawrocka

Vice Class Councillor is Aidan Hodgkinson

Sports Coucillors are Lexi Mellor and Leon Allcock



Year 5 homework : a Mathletics certificate , at least 50-100 pages of reading each week and five weekly spellings.

Spellings, vocabulary and ideas for writing will all be improved if children can meet the Government recommendation of one reading book per week.

Please make sure that your child reads for at least 30 mins five evenings each week and makes a note of it in their reading journal, either at home or in school in the morning.  Also, it would be great if you had some time to discuss and share the book with your child.  We are really trying to promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure.  A record will be kept of the reading completed by your child and rewards can be earned.
