Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 at Andrews’ Endowed. Year 5 is all about taking responsibility for our learning and making the most of every opportunity. Our teacher is Miss Daffey. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Winslade-Moon. We hope the following information is useful for you as your child continues their journey through Year 5.

Please find below links to documents and parent letters that are specific to Year 5.

What do our pupils think?

My friends and I have been at Andrew’s Endowed for nearly 7 years now and it has never been dull from Maths to Science – every lesson is fun. The teachers are jolly, kind and always try to be funny, especially if someone cracks a joke. My two favourite lessons are D.T and Art because I am allowed to be so creative! 

Year 6 Pupil

During the 2  nd half term as Year 6, we get to be buddies for the children in our Reception class which we call Acorns. We help them to read, do maths and even help them in how to be good friends.  

Year 6 Pupil

I did not start Andrews’ Endowed from the first year of reception, but our teachers here at Andrews’ have welcomed everybody new or not new. We always have a lot of one to one chats with teachers for good reasons if we need someone to talk to.

Homework in Year 5

Homework in year 5 is set on a Tuesday and is due in the following Monday. Details of the tasks will be posted on Google Classroom – and the work can be photographed / attached and submitted on this platform too. If you require paper copies, or to hand paper copies in, this can be arranged. Homework will be marked on Google Classroom on Monday evening.

Although in Year 5 homework is your child’s responsibility (and we encourage them to begin completing parts of it independently) your child will still need support with their homework – it really does make a difference to their progress!

Weekly Homework expectations in Year 5:

A spelling sheet is sent home each week with your child. Please complete this during the week, following the instruction on the sheet. Spellings are tested in school on Tuesdays.

Please log the reading your child does at home in their Reading Record. This should be handed in to class every Monday. If your child has read 3 times they will be able to climb a step of the Reading Mountain Challenge. Please note that it should be your child completing the record and answering the challenge questions, you are just signing to confirm they have read.

Topic homework is set on Google Classroom each week – and this is also where your child should upload homework documents or photos.

Maths Homework alternates between Mathletics and other tasks. On Mathletics weeks your child will have 3 activities linked to our in-class learning set on the platform. On non-Mathletics weeks the maths homework instructions will be posted on Google Classroom and any necessary paperwork sent home – this could be a game, a practical task, or calculation practise. In this case please upload homework documents or photos to Google Classroom.
