Class 5E 2016 - 2017

Mr Emes

Mr Emes

Teacher since 2000. Taught mainly in Years 5 and 6. Teacher at Leighton since 2007.

Welcome to Year 5E!

Your Year 5 team is Mr Emes and Miss Abrams, along with Mrs Smith.

Your Class Councillor is Amber Parry.

Vice Class Councillor is Lilo Bayley.


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 five entries in his/her reading journal (50 pages per week minumum, please), and earn a Mathletics certificate.

Spelling tests (5 spellings only to encourage deeper learning) 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 30 mins five evenings 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.
