Welcome to the Red Pandas 2019

Welcome to Year 5 Red Pandas!
Miss Norman teaches Year 5 with the support of Miss Castle, Miss Bloss and Miss Robson.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to catch me on the playground before or after school.
Here are a few weekly events to remember...
PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has their kit in school every day for special events such as tennis.

Library visits will be on Mondays. All children are expected to have a current reading book that they read regularly. Children can take out up to two books at a time. Pupils who are not yet free readers will be given a banded reading book to read regularly and a library book of their choice.


Spellings will take place weekly on Mondays. New spellings will be given on Tuesdays. They will be a mixture of the Year 3 and 4 spelling list to begin with and will eventually include Year 5 and 6 spellings. Depending on the outcomes of the first few tests, we may further differentiate spellings for pupils.


Times tables tests will also take place weekly on Mondays, as well as regularly calculation quizzes as part of our maths learning. The children will be told which times tables to practice at home each week, however regular practice of all times tables would be beneficial.


Homework will be weekly and sent home on a Friday to be handed in on the following Wednesday. Homework will often be topic or research based to support family learning.
We are looking forward to having a great term!
