Welcome to Year 5!

All the staff in Year 5 welcome you and your children to the Year 5 class page. The teachers in Year 5 are Mrs Ansell and Mrs Fielden and the teaching assistant is Mrs. Kelly. We hope that this term will be an exciting and productive term working with you and your child.

Our expectations are that the children arrive in school on time (8:45 to 9:15 when the bell rings) in full school uniform ready to learn. As they in the upper part of the school they are now role models, so we expect every child to show they are following the school’s rules and to be positive role models for the rest of the school.

Please make sure your child comes to school in full PE kit for their PE lessons. 5JM are on Tuesday and Thursday, 5HM are on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Home Reading

At Birches Green we believe in the value of reading regularly in order to enhance your child’s reading skills. We would encourage parents to read as much as possible with their child at home. This helps to build on your child’s level of fluency and ability to interpret and extract information from texts. Home reading books will be sent home with your child’s reading record. We would appreciate if you could inform us in their reading record of their reading at home. If your child has not finished the book we would still appreciate if you could send in your child’s reading record in at least once a week.
