Welcome to Class 5
- Class Teacher: Miss Fenn
- Teaching Assistant: Mrs Henderson
Welcome to Year 5.
Miss Fenn will be your child’s class teacher this year. Mrs Henderson, year 5’s Teaching Assistant will support the teaching and learning in Year 5.
It is essential that children read their Accelerated Reading book every night to ensure that they pass the book quiz. However, because the children are in upper Key Stage 2, they do not need to read out loud to an adult. It is recommended by the Accelerated Reading scheme that to ensure maximum progression in reading, children should read for at least 25 minutes per night (feel free to read more!). Everyone should bring in their Accelerated Reading book to school every day. There will be sanctions if children have not read each night, which will be to read for some of their playtime/lunchtime to catch up the required 25mins. To encourage the children to read, there will be opportunities to celebrate and reward reading with treats, rewards and prizes.
Homework will be provided on Seesaw each Friday and must be completed and saved by the following Thursday. This is to encourage independence and prepare pupils for the transition to secondary school. If you are having difficulty accessing Seesaw to complete homework, opportunities will be provided in school.
Any incomplete homework must be completed in ‘Golden Time’ on a Friday afternoon.
In the autumn term PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon with Mr Littlefair. Your child should wear their PE kit to school on this day in preparation for this session.
Willington Primary School’s PE Uniform consists of:
o Pair of shorts/ jogging bottoms/leggings
o T-shirt and hoody/tracksuit top etc
o Black plimsolls or trainers
As the children will be doing physical activity, please make sure they wear appropriate clothing – no jeans, shoes, boots, flip-flops, crop tops/ belly tops, jewellery etc
Class Do Jo
We have ‘graduated’ the children from the Year 4 Class Do Jo and onto the Year 5 Class Do Jo. If you are already signed up to Do Jo, you do not need to do anything. However, if you haven’t been part of the Class Do Jo system in the past, this is a great way to see how your child is doing in class as they receive Do Jo points for good behaviour and working hard. There will also be photographs of what the children are doing in class, which gives you a glimpse of what they have been up to at school. It is also a great messaging tool for Miss Fenn and you! Miss Fenn can send reminders etc and you can ask questions about anything; forgotten information, clarification, arrange to see Miss Fenn etc. Please ask for an information sheet on how to access this.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to an enjoyable and successful year!
