Class Teacher : Mrs Foster
Hello and a very warm welcome to our Year 5 class page!
Year 5 is a challenging yet exciting start to Upper Key Stage Two life at Beech Hill. The children are encouraged to work both independently and collaboratively to achieve their learning targets and will be learning lots of new and exciting things . Our timetable is very busy and children will be accessing all subjects throughout the Autumn Term including History, Geography , Spanish, Art, Music, Design and Technology and Art.
Reading is very important. Your child will have regular reading sessions in class, but they would also benefit greatly from further reading at home too. Each child will have a school reading book that they can read in class and at home. Please make sure that book bags are brought into school each day. We encourage children to read to an adult at least 4 times a week. Your child has been given a homework diary/reading journal. Please remember to sign your child's reading journal when they have read to you.
Homework Packs will be handed out on Mondays and collected the following Monday . The pack will include spellings, Grammar focus activity or a Maths focus activity. Children will be assigned timetables activities on TT Rockstars and comprehension activities on Reading Plus. Please note that spelling tests and times tables tests will be completed on Fridays.
Please make sure that your child brings in a full PE kit for every session. Year 5 will have PE on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings.
Our aim in Year 5 is to make sure children are prepared for the final year in school and that they feel confident and ready for the next challenges that lie ahead. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any enquiries.
We invite you to look at our class Twitter page to keep up to date with what we are doing in our classroom.
