In Year 5, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary in which they should record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Thursday and must be back in school the following Wednesday. Each Friday, children receive a list of spellings, based on our spelling rule for the week, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class the following Friday.
We have P.E. every Thursday and Friday afternoon so please ensure that your child has the correct kit in school.
Spring and Summer Terms
Please note that Class 5 will not be having swimming lessons next half term due to Covid-19. P.E. will continue to take place on Thursdays and Fridays.
Year 5 Autumn 2
We would like to share a good news story with you at the end of an unusual year for all of us, but for Emil he has had to overcome a huge challenge which none of us would wish to experience. The amazing and resilient Emil has now completed his treatment and is recuperating at home. During this term, year 5 have been sending Emil cards, gifts and video messages. We are also aware of how some year 5 pupils are in regular contact with Emil through social media and we’re really impressed by the thoughtfulness and kindness of our pupils. Last week, it was lovely to surprise year 5, as Emil came to visit the class in the school playground with his mum and sister - they haven’t been together as a class since March. Year 5 did an applause walk for Emil and then chatted with him in small groups. The monkey Emil is holding is the one which we keep in school to remind us of Emil; Emil has a smaller one at home and in 2021 we hope to reunite them. We hope to continue doing these meet and greets until Emil is well enough to join us back in school, he is steadily improving. We’re very proud of you Emil, as you have continued to sparkle and smile throughout your ordeal you are an inspiration to us with your positivity towards overcoming difficult challenges. So a very Merry Christmas Emil and we look forward to welcoming you back into school with us all in 2021. You are a Quinton superstar and we’re very proud of you. 🌟🌟🌟
