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. It is even more important this year, in the current climate, to ensure that your child has the correct equipment that they need for school.

Please remember to come to school in PE kits Tuesdays and Thursdays. This should consist of plain black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt with the school logo, a red school hoodie and trainers. On PE days, your child needs to have any earrings either removed or taped up, we are unable to do this for them.

Homework will be given out half 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 5 times per week which should be signed by an adult in their reading records. Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday.

Please remember, we do have access to Bug Club and Times Tables Rockstars. These are really good programmes to use them to help support your child’s reading and times tables. Each child has their own logins for these.

Mrs N Galloway and Mrs J Sharp.
