Welcome Hazel Class – Year 5
Year 5 is a challenging and important year as it’s one step closer to Year 6. The children should be encouraged to take responsibility for their own belongs and handing homework in on time. The children have made a fantastic start to the year and are showing real maturity in their learning.
Our PE days are now Thursday morning and Friday afternoon. We would be grateful if PE kits are in school Monday to Friday. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.
If you haven’t done so already, please sign up to our Class Dojo page- our online reward system. It is a really easy way for parents to be connected with learning and achievements and it will also be a useful communication tool throughout the year.
Please see the link below to our class dojo page:
Times Tables Rock Stars homework will aim to be set every Friday in preparation for a test the following Friday. The children will be expected to complete 20 minutes but I would strongly encourage them to spend longer. Maths homework will be set each week – alternating between Mathletics and a paper based homework. The children will also be set spellings to learn and are expected to read 5x a week.
Children are expected to complete their five reads, spellings, TTRS and maths homework first. Dojos will be rewarded to those children who choose to complete the extra homework.
I am pleased to say that the Class has been get over 90% most weeks for 5x read.
