Welcome to Year 5

Our Typical Year 5 Timetables

5TB timetable

5JM timetable Spring 1

Key Information

 

  • Full PE kit to be worn on Thursday
  • Library day is Friday.

  

Communicating with your child's class teacher: 

Our direct year group email is year5@st-matthews.leeds.sch.uk. As both classes use this email, please make it clear in the subject line who the email is for (FAO Mr Barlow or Mrs McLean)

 

Names in clothing:

Please ensure that your child's clothing is clearly labelled with their name so their clothing can be rightfully returned (should it be taken off).

Homework

  • Each week, spellings will be set to learn. They will be uploaded onto Google Classroom on Monday so you can access them there.  
  • MyMaths homework will also be set weekly, the children will access this in the usual way and complete the homework related to our topic in class. This will be set on a Friday and the children will have a week to complete the task.  Mymaths homework will start on Friday 15th September.
  • In addition, there will be a weekly grammar homework task handed out every Wednesday which the children will need to bring back for the following Wednesday when the teacher will go through the answers with the class.
  • We would like all children to complete 15 minutes of TT Rockstars a few times each week too.  Peridoically, there will be TT Rockstars battle between the Year 5 classes or girls v boys.
