Year 5 - Miss Allen

  •                                                                              

  • Hello everybody and welcome to Year 5!

    So far, this year has been a challenging one for all of us but I am extremely excited to be back in school and cannot wait for the fun and learning that lies ahead. Remember to be kind to yourself and to others during this unusual time and any obstacles we face, we will overcome together as part of the West View team! I hope you are ready to come back to school: happy, healthy and raring to go!

    Love from Miss Allen 

     

    We come to school to

    Dream Big, Aim High and Shine Bright! 

     

                                                             

     

  • P.E

    This term we have P.E on Wednesdays & Fridays
    Please make sure your child has a full P.E kit in school. This includes: white or grey t-shirt, navy or black shorts (jogging bottoms and leggings are acceptable for the winter) and P.E plimsolls or trainers. This term’s P.E topics are tag rugby and sport leaders.

  • Reading

    Reading books will be sent home daily and we encourage children to read at home as often as possible.  Please make sure reading records are signed so children receive their well-deserved reading awards! 

     

     

     

     

  • The expectation in Year 5 is that children manage their own learning at home.
    Children are expected to read their book and practise weekly spellings. The hard work children put in at home can make a huge difference to their progress in school. Spelling Shed and Times Table Rock Stars are online portals that will support 
    your children with their spelling and times table skills. Log in details can be found in the front of their reading records. Children can take paper copies home as an alternative.
