The teachers in year 5 are Mr Grimshaw (5G) and Miss Isherwood (5I). We will be working hard this year to achieve our best through a stimulating and exciting approach to our learning. A fantastic year is planned, with learning opportunities both within school and also on educational trips and visits.
Homework at Stoneyholme
It is expected that children read regularly at home (everyday for 15 to 20 minutes). Reading is a vital skill for life and at Stoneyholme, we strive to ensure that all our children develop a love of reading and become confident and proficient in all skills relating to reading. It is therefore important that children practise as much as possible at home.
We really value your support!
Travel through the solar system in our year 5, 'Planet Hop' reading challenge! There will be lots of prizes and certificates to win along the journey!
By year 5, all children should be confident in recalling all times tables and related division facts quickly. This year, we will be investigating mathematics through problem solving activities so it is therefore vitally important that all children practise them regularly at home.
We have now subscribed to TTRockstars so that children in year 5 can practise their times tables on this new online resource and battle against each other in our weekly, 'Battle of the Bands' competition!
Every week, the children in year 5 will have spelling lists to learn. Please try to practise these at home.
Attendance and School Uniform
Please ensure that your child attends school every day wearing the correct uniform. Remember that prizes and certificates are awarded in our weekly and termly celebration assemblies for 100% attendance.
