Dear Year 5,
Well, it is the last day of term! We can't believe it. What a year it has been! We have thoroughly enjoyed teaching all of you this year, both in school and via home learning. We want to say a massive THANK YOU for all the effort, determination and enthusiasm you have all demonstrated, particularly in the last two terms.
Parents, we would also like to thank you separately. We really appreciate all the email contact and support you have given both us and your children throughout this time.
We now hope you can all have an enjoyable summer. Should you wish to do any school learning, we have attached weekly packs of Maths and English if they are useful. These are purely for you at home, as we won't be checking our emails over the summer.
Year 5 - thank you for everything! Enjoy the six weeks, we look forward to seeing you in the new school year.
Mrs Riseley and Miss Howling

Welcome to Year 5, Pullman and Paver Class.
This year, the classes at Kingsnorth are named after excellent authors. In Year 5 we have chosen Michelle Paver (Wolf Brother from the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series) and Philip Pullman (Northern Lights from His Dark Materials trilogy). We have already begun examining our authors and their work and are thoroughly enjoying learning all about them.
Please see attached newsletter for information about our work in class this term. Just some general reminders:
- Please ensure children have appropriate for the season P.E. kit at school throughout the week. We will have P.E. each Tuesday afternoon. Once a term we will have a block of P.E. in addition to this, therefore it is important kit is in school.
- In Year 5 we work hard together to promote a love of learning and an independent, growth mindset approach to our work.
- The teachers in Year 5 are always willing to talk to parents about their children's wellbeing and learning. We endeavour to respond to emails within the next working day and are happy to meet with you whenever needed at mutually agreed time.
- Homework continues to focus on key skills, particularly times tables and spellings. We do always add a 'project' style activity which is entirely optional. However, we do love reading these extra contributions!
Please find below a list of the spellings that you will recognise from our homework through the year. It is important to continue revisiting these.
Please continue supporting your children in accessing Times Tables Rockstars!!
