Welcome to Year 5 Great Gable Class!


Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back to Year 5 Great Gable class! We hope you have had a lovely, relaxing holiday.

Our topic this term is ‘Extreme Climates’ and the curriculum overview is attached so you can see what we will be learning until the Christmas holidays.

PE lessons will take place on Tuesday afternoon with Mrs Norris and Thursday afternoons with Mrs Norris and Nick the football coach.

Homework will be sent home on Mondays and collected in on Fridays. It will consist of: spellings, maths and talk homework which will be writing and/or topic related to support our ‘Wicked Writing’ focus for the week. We will also have our spelling test and mental maths test on Friday mornings.

Your child will also bring home their reading book and home/school log book home each evening to read and prepare for their next Accelerated Reader quiz. Please ensure your child records their reading in their home/school log book. This book is also where we can record any notes of communication between home and school.

The adults working in Year 5 this year will be Mrs Little (individual support), Mrs Cumming (volunteer), Mrs Norris (group intervention & class cover), Mrs Owen (Music) and Senora Findlay (Spanish).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through the school office.

Best Wishes,

Mrs L Barber
