Welcome to Year 5!
Hello all and welcome to a new year here at St Catherine's - I know we are going to have a fantastic 12 months.
As already mentioned in dojo, homework and reading is as follows:
Homework - This is your child's reading and spellings which are given on a Friday and due to be tested the following Friday. Reading is checked every Friday along with Reading Plus.
Reading - This will be sent home in a carry bag along with a check list of when the pupil has read throughout the week - it is the pupil's responsibility to fill this in.
Ideally reading should be done every night, but I will look for a minimum of 3 reads during the week, running from Friday to Friday. Books can be changed Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Year 5 have already made a superb impression on myself and the other staff in class and I look for that to continue throughout the whole year, with us all loving and learning through faith, family and friendship.
As always, any questions at all, please send me a dojo message or contact the class team through the school office.
Internet Safety Link
Please find below a link to the 'Think You Know' online safety website. As many of us are using the internet to engage with our work, it seems appropriate to know all the facts.
Looking for something extra?
Reading Plus - you could challenge yourself to complete the vocab activities, or even complete a piece of writing that is suggested for you on the programme.
Hit the Button - can you beat your high score for multiplication tables? Try using the number bond activity and challenge yourself to 100% accuracy on all options.
Home / School Reader - feel free to pick up your school book and complete it early, we can always change your book early for you if needs be.
If in doubt, read a book of your choice - a book can transport you anywhere! Enjoy.
