Welcome to Year 5

World Art Day

On Monday 15th April it was World Art Day. To celebrate this we had a special assembly for both KS1 and KS2 where we learnt that World Art Day is on Leonardo Da Vinci’s birthday. During the Assembly, every child had a piece of paper and a pencil and we drew our own Zentangles. We looked at different lines that can be used and different ways to use them. The children really enjoyed the assembly and drew some beautiful Zentangles.

Welcome to the Year 5 Information Page!

In Year 5, we have many exciting things planned for your children to enjoy their time at school. Here you will find useful information about your child’s weekly timetable, links to useful websites and other important information.

We want you to know that we are always happy to support you and your child in any way we can so if you have any concerns or worries, please don’t hesitate to contact us, either on the doors at the beginning or the end of the day, or via email on year5team@stgeorgesschool.org.uk.

Attendance

Attendance is really important so please try to ensure your children are here every day and they are in class and ready to learn for 8.45am. Children finish school at 3:20pm.

Reading 

In Year 5, we encourage every child to read at home to an adult at least 5 times a week. We ask for home reading to be recorded and signed by an adult in reading diaries. This can include books from home, as well as school. Each week, a certificate will be given to a child in each English set to celebrate the ‘Reader Of The Week!’.

Homework

Homework is given out every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday at the latest. If your child requires any support with their homework, please do not hesitate to email us as we will ensure they receive help with the activity.

Spellings

Spellings are given out every Friday and the test will be the following Friday. We encourage children to practise spellings at home either in their spelling book or on Spelling Shed (see link below).

PE

PE kits should be in school at all times. The children will have two lessons of PE each week.

Water 

We encourage our children to stay hydrated throughout the day and welcome water bottles to be brought in. Please ensure the bottle is labelled with their name/initials and only contains water.

Healthy School

Children are allowed to bring in a healthy snack at breaktime if they choose to. As a healthy school, we recommend the child has a piece of fruit or vegetable.

Online Resources 

All children have been given usernames and passwords for Times Tables Rockstars, Spelling Shed and Purple Mash (see links below). Children are encouraged to access these regularly at home to assist with their learning.
