Year 5 - Miss Booth 2023 - 2024
Hello and welcome to 5B's class page.
I am thrilled to be back in the year 5 team this year and I am looking forward to the exciting year we have ahead. I hope you all will join me in helping make sure it is a successful one too!
On our class page you will find some useful information and our class twitter page @PPS_MissBooth, which will give you up-to-date action from ‘5B’.
Monday - Outdoor PE
Tuesday - Indoor PE
We will continue to run PE and Games lessons, and these will be outside when we are able to do so. In the past, PE kits were kept in school but this will change.
On the days that your child has a PE or Games lesson we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.
Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits.
Water bottles & snacks: Please ensure your child comes to school with a water bottle labelled with their name. Also, if your child wishes to have a snack during break times, it must be one of the following items:
- Plain biscuit
Mirodo - The vast majority of the homework this year will be online based via Mirodo. You can access Mirodo by clicking here; your child's username and password is in their planner. Homework will be set on a Friday and is expected to be completed by the following Friday.
Times Tables - Every child has been given a username and password to access Times Tables Rock Stars. This is a brilliant resource to help practise times tables facts and the children can track their own progress as well as teachers. The login details can be found at the front of your child's planner.
Spellings - New spellings will be given out every Monday and children will learn them during the week. We will have a special focus on learning rules. Your child will have access to Oxford Owl spelling online resources. Please see their reading journal for this.
Reading expectations at home:
At Plantation Primary, we understand the importance of reading at home. We recommend that your child reads at least 4 times a week for a minimum of 10 minutes per session. Your support with reading and homework is always appreciated.
The children will continue to use a reading scheme called 'Accelerated Reading'. This scheme will identify a 'range of scores' for your child and recommend suitable books based on that range. You may think that the books being recommended to your child are 'easy', but this scheme has been designed to quiz your child on their understanding of the content of the book, not the fluency of their reading. Once your child completes their book, they need to bring the book into school and complete the quiz on an iPad in school. They will receive a % score and the scheme will then recommend a new book for them to read.
Epic Reading - Reading for Pleasure
Class Code - BLS5338
Please can you ensure that the children's planners are brought into school every day and signed by an adult every Thursday night. Each time your child reads, they need to record what they have read and the number of pages under the appropriate date.
