Class 5B

Welcome to Year 5

In class 5B our class teacher is Mr. Bassnett and our teaching assistant is Mrs Parker.  We hope you have all had a good summer holiday, and you are fresh and ready for your learning journey in your new class.



Our homework is set at the start of every half term and will be collected in the last week. The activities can be completed in any order and at any time over the half term. A copy of the homework grid for the half term can be found on the link above and inside your homework book. There will be a range of activities that are linked to the topics covered in class. You will be rewarded for any homework activities that are completed and returned on time. Please let the class teacher know if you have any problems completing your homework.


Home Reading

You will be given a reading book to take home. Please aim to read at least 3 times a week and ask an adult to sign your reading record to show us what you have done. Reading books will be changed once you have read your book but please let the teacher know when you need to change your book.  Please try to bring your book to school every day so that we can listen to you read in school.


If you want to do some additional learning at home, you will be given passwords for Purple Mash, Lbq, Timetable Rockstars, and Spelling Shed. You can do as much practice as you like on here and earn points and rewards as you go.



5B PE day is Wednesday this term. Children can wear black tracksuit bottoms or shorts, white P.E. top and trainers to school on this day with your school jumper or you can bring in your PE kit to keep in school to get changed. Please can you make sure children have the correct P.E. kit for their P>E. day. In PE we will be learning sequencing and balancing through gymnastics.


We are also very lucky that we have a Spanish teacher called Senorita Valero who visits us every other Wednesday.
