Class 5A 2017 - 2018

Miss Abrams

Welcome to Year 5A!

Your Year 5 team is Mrs Schofield and Miss Abrams, along with Miss Mosley.

Your Class Councillor is Maisie Goodwin!


Year 5 homework will be given out on Mondays and reviewed on Fridays.  Children will need to learn their spellings and focus times tables, have four entries in his/her reading journal (10 minutes per night minumum, please), and earn a Mathletics certificate.

Spelling tests and times table tests are done on a Friday. Try to complete 12 x 12 grids regularly.  We really need the children to enter Year 6 knowing all their times tables facts (multiplication and division) and number bonds instantly.

Please make sure that your child reads for at least 10 minutes every evening each week and makes a note of it in their reading journal, either at home or in school in the morning.  Also, it would be great if you had some time to discuss and share the book with your child.  We are really trying to promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure.  A record will be kept of the reading completed by your child and rewards can be earned.
