Welcome to Year 5 - Russia Class.
If you need to see me or your child's set teacher then please arrange a meeting via email or through the office. Before school is usually very busy and we want to ensure that we have sufficient time to discuss any concerns.


Term 3 and 4's topic is 'Tropical Trekkers'. This topic focuses on North and South America and the forest biome. 



 Please encourage your child to read to themselves at home every day. 

Your child will receive homework every Friday and it is due in on the following Wednesday.  All children will also have spellings to learn weekly which will be tested on a Wednesday. They are expected to return their completed spelling sheet.  In addition to this, your child has their Avenue Adventure booklet to complete a range of activities. 


PE kits need to be in school every day. These needs to consist of: black or navy shorts/jogging bottoms, white t-shirt or house t-shirt, trainers and hoodie if needed. Your child will have PE on Wednesday.
