Welcome to Junior 5! In our class, we have children from Year 5 and Year 6. We spend our mornings working on Maths and English and our afternoons are spent learning about our topics. For Maths and English, Year 6 children are taught by Miss Spencer and Year 5 children by Mrs Mort. We also have Mrs Reilly who is our teaching assistant.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Children require an outdoor PE kit (tracksuit, trainers) for this and twice a year will need an indoor kit (shorts, t-shirt and pumps). Parents will be notified of when children need their indoor kit but it is a great idea to have both in school.
The children all have their reading books and weekly spelling lists. We encourage children to read each night and practise their spellings to support their learning in school. All children will be given a Maths and English home learning task to complete. This is given out each Friday and is to be returned to school by Tuesday. Home learning tasks are used to revise skills and reinforce aspects of learning already covered.
Don’t forget to take a look at our ‘See-Saw’ app to see the type of work and activities taking place in class. We also keep parents up to date with class news and life through our newsletters. These can be accessed using the links at the bottom of this page.
