Hello & Welcome to Year 5,
My name is Miss Brierley and I am the class teacher; I am thrilled to work alongside Mrs Kaba and Mrs Maguire (who both work with us every morning). All members of staff in Year 5 work together to provide your child with a high-quality education, aiming to make lessons 'Meaningful, Memorable and Motivating.' We strive to make learning enjoyable in Year 5, we aim to incorporate the 'Seven Skills of the Steward' in our learning to ensure that all children succeed as young learners of the future.
Home learning is an important part of children’s education which we aim to make accessible for all children. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning every week as it will have an impact on their learning in school. Reading is an integral part of a child’s education, therefore listening to your child reading at home is extremely important. On Mondays reading homework is due in as well as a signature to say that your child has read at home. We will continue to use Spelling Shed where your child can practise their spellings through fun and interactive games. It is also important that your child continues to practise their times tables as this will help them in their learning – hit the button is a great way to practise. If your child is struggling with homework at home, please come pop me a message via class dojo.
This term, our PE lessons will take place on a Monday afternoon, please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their full PE kit on a Monday. If you'd like to take a look at what we are learning about, please see our long term plan in the link below.
We very much look forward to the year ahead.
Miss Brierley & the Year 5 team 😊
