Welcome to Year 5. Croeso!
Staff in Year 5: Mrs S. Reece, Mr P Smith, Mrs K Jones
We are absolutely thrilled to have you all in our class this year! We intend to continue to work as hard as we can, to ensure we can help you become the best that you can be. We are so excited to see lots of your smiles as we learn new and exciting things together. Learning is a two way process and it is important we help each other along on our journeys.
Important dates and days
Estuary Education Dates
Wednesday 18th January
Wednesday 1st February
Wednesday 15th February
PE Days: Please make sure you are wearing suitable outdoor clothing and trainers for these sessions. Every other week, we will be having our Estuary Education and this will replace one of our PE weekly slots. We will also be developing our mindfulness and resilience sessions as part of our Health and Well-being Area of Learning and Experience (AoLE)
Tuesday am - swimming (Please make sure you have your appropriate kits)
Friday pm (this will alternate so make sure you have kit that can be used indoor and outdoor) in the weeks we do not have estuary education
There may be times where the nature reserve may be utilised also, and it may be a little muddy. Please help us by reminding Mums and Dads to work with us and make sure you understand that sometimes, footwear may become a little muddy.
Reading At Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:
Guided reading in groups and whole class (same text for whole group- decided by the teacher with lots of talk involved teaching objectives)
Shared (paired ,group and whole class)
Independent (own choice)
Please make sure you have access to your library reading books into school every day.
Keep your Reading Eggs password safe! You will access Reading Eggspress for comprehension work. We understand it may be hard for Mums and Dads to hear you read every night, so be independent and read to yourself when they can’t hear you. Try to alternate it as much as possible and try to read a range of books.
Mondays: Homework given out on a Monday and to be completed by the Friday. Check our class blog weekly for the set tasks. This can be found by going to the tree on the left hand side of the school website and clicking 'Class Blogs' and then you search for the Y5 blog.
Friday Dictation Challenge
Once children have become familiar with and have practised the weekly spelling words, both at home and at school, they will be given a dictation challenge on the Friday. This will allow them to show how they are able to apply the words to their writing and will also give opportunities to practise punctuation and grammar skills. We are really keen to emphasise to the children that they are learning spellings and punctuation, not for a ‘test’, but instead to become more confident, competent writers.
Reading every night for 20 minutes
Oracy Projects: 1 in the Autumn linked to topic and 1 in the Summer, linked to topic. These need to be something that you are interested in.
Let's make our class the best that it can be, and always "Smile, love and be kind!' so that we remain happy. Happy classrooms are THE best places to be.
