Welcome to Year 5 Michael Morpurgo Class!
Teacher: Miss Skerry
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Panayi
All children have a reading book and a reading record diary that they are asked to take home and share with parents and carers. When they have read their book, children are able to change them when they arrive at school each morning. Please sign your name and feel free to write any comment each time you listen to your child read, and also when they have completed their book. Please try and listen to your child read daily at home.
Maths and English home learning is handed out every Wednesday and needs to be handed back in to the class teacher on the following Monday. Spellings are set on Friday and can be accessed via Google Classroom. They are due back the following Friday when the children will be tested on them. As part of home learning, Year 5 are expected to complete activities and challenges via the Times Tables Rock Stars and Reading Eggs websites. One Reading Egg challenge must be completed per month and Times Tables Rock Stars challenges weekly.
Home Learning if your child is well but isolating:
Children can use the National Oak Academy daily lessons: https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5
They can use Times Tables Rockstars for additional learning.
Our PE days for the Autumn term are Mondays and Fridays. Children can now come to school wearing their PE kit for the day on PE days. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for this. No jewellery is permitted. Click on the link below to find out more information about our uniform.
