St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Sycamore (Y5)

Welcome to Year 5 – Sycamore Class


The adults who work in class are Mrs Woolfall, Mrs Hesketh and Mrs Jewitt.


For the first two weeks we are swimming every afternoon. Then our PE day will be Thursday afternoon. PE kits should stay in school until they are sent home. As it is outdoors PE children can bring trainers and also plain blue/black tracksuit bottoms and hoodie if the weather begins cool. 


Homework will be set each half term and will come home in a grid. This will need to be completed by the day stated on the sheet and handed in to earn some Dojo rewards. 


Spellings will be set weekly with a test on a Friday. These will be sent home vis our class Dojo page and also accessed on EdShed. 


We will continue to test and develop out times tables skills with weekly tests on a Friday. Children will be responsible for learning their chosen tables. 


Reading daily is essential in Year 5 and children can earn Reading Rockets for reading at home which build to earn  rewards. Children must show us they have read at home and can complete their diary independently as well.
