Additional Information

Accelerated Reading Toggle

Year 5 is a fantastic year to really push your child’s reading. As the vocabulary grows, more books become accessible to read and a real love of reading different types of books can form.

Children should be reading at home daily and we will be tracking reading performance using Accelerated Reader, which the children are aware of. The website can be found here to access the login page for our school. The children should be able to log in and quiz.

Homework Toggle

Homework will be sent home consistently and will consist of Numeracy, Literacy and Spelling at weekends. There will also be another piece of homework set over the week to be brought in. This work is to be celebrated and we love to see the effort put in at home.

This year we are pushing reading even further. There will be a reading record sent home which needs to be signed daily and brought back into school.

Junior Jam Toggle

We are excited to continue our partnership with a company called Junior Jam, which offers music, drama and performing arts to all the children. Year 5 will have Junior Jam sessions on Wednesday afternoon, and children also have the option of an afterschool club. There will be details of this club coming soon.

Online Resources Toggle

Remember that there are lots of resources and learning activities online that children can always access. Here are a few good ones, however there are so many more excellent online resources.
