Hello and welcome back to all parents and pupils of Year 5. I hope you’ve all had a fantastic holiday and that the children are raring to go for another exciting term at Carr Head.
This newsletter will give you a little more detail about day to day routines and the curriculum in Year 5.
Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Lupton will be providing teaching support in Year 5 and will be working with children of all abilities to maintain the high standards that are expected of upper juniors.
Day to day:
The children can bring a named water bottle each day. These are kept just outside the classroom. The children can take them out with them at break times. Your child may bring in a healthy snack for morning break-time.
P.E. will be on Mondays and Fridays. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is kept in school in a named Carr Head PE bag. The ‘Run a Mile’ challenge will happen throughout the week and your child will need appropriate black or white trainers in school each day.
Your child will need to have their reading book in school every day. We will change these when we feel they are able to read it fluently and show a good level of understanding. Guided Reading will be taking place daily.
This year your child will have a times tables booklet and spelling booklet which must be brought in to school every Friday. Weekly homework will usually consist of mental maths questions or maths learnt in the week alongside grammar tasks or comprehension questions. Homework is to be in for Friday and will be given out on Friday. Spelling tests will take place in school on Friday.
