Happy New Year! Welcome back to a new school term and I really hope you all had an amazing Christmas and had some lovely relaxing time with your family and friends. It is going to be a long term, but I know you are all ready to work extremely hard and learn some new and fun things on the way.
Welcome to our class page!

Maths Homework is set every Monday, on MyMaths, and is due the following Thursday morning. If you do not have access to an iPad, laptop or device for your homework, please speak to Mrs Giles before Thursday and she can help you. If you are struggling with your homework, Mrs Giles will be available on Wednesday lunchtimes to go over this with you - so please do not worry!
English Homework is set on a Thursday and is due in the following Monday. You will have homework books, but most of your work will be set online on our Google Classroom. Please make sure that it is handed in on time. You will be given spellings to learn each week, as well as some SPaG and sometimes a writing task.
Reading is a very important skill and Year 5 is no different to any other year. You will be expected to have a reading book in school every day. This book should go home and someone at home should try and read with you at least once per week. Your reading book should be returned to the classroom each morning and taken home again each evening. You will also be expected to access Reading Plus at home and you will have a target to meet each week.
Year 5 may seem a really scary year, but it can be the best year yet!
You will need to work hard, and we have a lot of catching up to do, but we will also have so much fun. There are so many brilliant things which usually happen in Year 5 (fingers crossed).
