Many thanks


The Y5 team

Remote Learning:


Well done to everyone for logging in and joining us each day for our lessons via Microsoft Teams. We have loved seeing you and are so pleased so many of you are trying to join us and complete the work we have assigned. A massive thank you to the grown ups for helping with the technology and loaning your child a 'phone/tablet or laptop/desktop! 


Lessons take place at 9:15, 11:15 and 13:15 each day. There is work assigned after each lesson and this will be marked and returned to the children. 



Please do not hesitate to contact us on here or through teams and we will do our best to solve any issues you may be having. Thank you so much for your support during this time, we really do appreciate it. 


Year 5 Team

Welcome to Year 5 Addams Class


The class teachers for Addams are Miss Waltham on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday and Miss Flint on Thursday & Friday. The class LSA is Mrs Watts and MDA is Miss Grubb. If you have a question or would like to contact us, please use the form at the bottom of this page.



We would like all children to read each night (or at least 3 times a week) for 10 minutes (or more) and have their reading record signed weekly by an adult at home. The reading record must be given to Mrs Watts every morning in order to gain points towards your reading certificates. If you have misplaced the reading record, a note can be written and signed by an adult instead.


PE and Kit:

PE is on a Monday afternoon with Mr Morris and a Thursday afternoon with Miss Flint. Children should arrive on both days in PE kit and have their ears clear of earrings. This must be black or grey jogging bottoms or black shorts and a white t-shirt. The Unity purple jumper should be worn over the top. Please note, children should not be in full coloured tracksuits. Children will not be allowed to do PE if they do not have the correct footwear (trainers) due to health and safety. Due to Covid-19, we are unable to offer spare kits during these times. 



The children are grouped across Year 5 for spellings and have sessions 4 times a week. We give out spellings on a Monday and test on a Friday. We are trialling this system until Christmas when we will review it. Please help your child by practising their spellings throughout the week.


Home Learning:

Alongside reading each week, we encourage each child to visit the Times tables Rockstars and Mathletics websites to encourage independent learning skills. We will also be sending out specific homework linked to our topic from January to prepare the children for the increased expectations in Year 6 and Secondary School. 



We follow the 'SMART', Gold, Green, Yellow and Red card chart to reward and recognise behaviour in our class. We also use Class Dojo to gain points throughout the day and work towards certificates/prizes. The dojo points are linked to the SMART chart and our whole school dispositions which are:
