Welcome to Class 5F!
This year the children will be participating in an exciting new reading scheme called ‘Accelerated Reader’. At the beginning of term, all children will complete an online reading assessment which will indicate a range of appropriate reading material to match their current skills. They will be able to choose from a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books in our new ‘Bookpool’. After finishing each book, children will take an online quiz.
Homework for English and maths will be issued weekly to be completed electronically by the children. If anyone has trouble accessing the internet at home, let us know and we can make arrangements for children to use school laptops during the day.
Year 5 use the rainbow spelling scheme. Children will bring home a list of individualised spellings and can test as regularly as they like. The minimum is once weekly.
Swimming lessons will be on Tuesday mornings and children will be notified by letter when their lessons will begin. Children who passed the swimming certificate in Year 4 will not have lessons this year but will have the opportunity to compete in the swimming gala at the end of the year.
Please ensure reading books and journals are brought into school every day. Homework in books is given out on Tuesdays and needs to be returned by the following Monday.
