Welcome to 5H! Year 5 will be taught by myself, Miss Hoey and will be supported by our helpful teaching assistants, Mrs Davey, Mrs Tighe and Mrs Barrie. Our PE sessions will be carried out on Wednesdays and children will be expected to have a full school PE kit available each week as part of their school uniform.
Homework folders will be sent home on a Friday and will contain spelling practise, maths homework and a writing/grammar task. Homework folders should be returned by Wednesday. It is vital that children are encouraged to complete and return their homework on time in order to prepare them for their transition into Y6 and the increased workload at high school in the near future. In addition to this, encouraging your child to read at home will benefit them massively as this year we will be working on reading for endurance and speed. To give them a helping hand along the way, regular encouragement to read and discussing or questioning them about what they are reading would be really beneficial and much appreciated!
Autumn Term - Festivals of Colour
This term Thorn will be focusing on religions and festivals around the world. As part of this theme, Y5 will be delving into Judaism and its yearly celebration of Simchat Torah. Watch this space for updates on what we get up to!
