Welcome to Tiger Class (Year 5)

Hello and welcome to Tiger Class! This is the year where you enter Upper Key Stage 2 and I am looking forward to welcoming you into the class. In this class I expect you to work hard, always try your best and rise to the challenge of being role models that our younger children will look up to. I also hope that we will laugh and have some fun along the way too!

Meet the staff

There are a number of staff who will be working in Tiger Class this year.

Term One - important information

PE

PE will take place on a Thursday and Friday and will take place outside whenever possible. Please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days. They will wear their PE clothes all day. In line with school policy, earrings must be removed for PE lessons.

Spelling Homework

Every child has been given a Spelling Home Learning Book. Spellings are set each week and will be tested every FRIDAY. Spelling homework should be completed in the book and be returned to school in the book bag every Friday. I will be awarding house points for spelling homework that has been completed.

Timestable Rockstars Homework

Children are asked to regularly practice their times tables by using Timestable Rockstars online. Each child has access to Timestable Rockstars and can use this via the free, downloadable app, or via the website  - https://ttrockstars.com/ at home. If your child has forgotten their log in and password, please email year5@st-edmunds-pri.wilts.sch.uk. 

Reading Books

Each child will be given up to 2 books to take home and read on a Monday. Books bags should be brought into school on a Friday to enable us to quarantine any books before resending them out the following week. This means that children will be able to develop fluency and comprehension through shorter books or enable children to read more of the longer books, while ensuring we can manage any risks associated with Covid-19. When reading with an adult in school, we will be using school books and keeping a separate reading record. Children therefore only need to bring their book bags to school on a Friday.

We actively encourage children to read a wide variety of materials as well as school reading books. If you are looking for some new books to try, I've recommended some (see below) and also added a reading 'tube map' which gives plenty of suggestions if you like a particular author.

Term One - key documents

We are continuing to use knowledge organisers as a way of supporting your child to learn key facts and vocabulary linked to our topics and science each term. We ask that you spend time with your child looking through the information, learning the key facts and completing any activities on the sheet. This gives your child a solid grounding for the learning that we will then be doing in class. Returning a completed knowledge organiser will earn your child housepoints! See below for term one's knowledge organisers.

Spellings lists - although your child will have stuck their spellings sheets for the whole term in their spelling homework book, the sheets are uploaded below if you need spares. The maajority of children should be learning spellings on the list 1 sheet. A few children will be learning spellings on the list 2 sheet.
