Year 5

Governors At St Albert The Great

Welcome to the Year 5 pages.

In Year 5 we expect the children to become more independent learners. They need to ensure that every day they are ready to learn with all of the equipment that they need. Your child should have a water bottle with them as well as a blue or black pen, a red pen, a purple pen, a pencil, a clear ruler – preferably 30cm and not flexible, a sharpener, a rubber, a highlighter and a glue stick which is kept in a single pencil case. 

Please remember to bring your PE kits at the beginning of each week. This should consist of plain black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt with the school logo, a red school hoodie and trainers. On Fridays children are permitted to come to school in their PE kits as they will participate in their swimming lessons.

Homework will consist of weekly English and Maths tasks as well as the RE, Science and Geography and History homework which will be given out termly. The children are expected to attempt at least the minimum number of tasks suggested, but are free to do more. As well as this, they are expected to practice their times tables and spellings daily and to read at least 4 times per week which should be signed by an adult in their reading records. Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested on a Friday.
