Year 5 - Emus

Welcome to the Year 5 (Emu's) class page. 

We are very excited about our year ahead. Here, you will find lots of useful information about the routines in class and school. We are always outside in the mornings or after school if you need to speak to us directly. Alternatively, drop us a Dojo message and we will respond to you as soon as possible.


The children have decided on some new class rules that they are following in class and in school. They are:

We move around the school, classroom and outside areas making sure we are aware of others around us.

We listen and respect the person who is speaking.

We have a positive attitude to our learning- Emu's do not give up! 

We are a kind, caring and supportive class who try our best. 


Every week, Gerald the Giraffe could be visiting our classroom if we have the highest attendance. It is so important that children are regularly attending school, please check our website if you are unsure of the symptoms they are displaying and your decision to send them into school. 


On a Monday and Friday the children will have PE in school. Children are expected to come into school in their PE kits and remain in these for the whole school day. As the weather is changing please send your child to school in the appropriate warm clothing for the day. 


Homework will consist of one piece of maths and one spelling sheet. It will be set on a Thursday and needs to be completed by the following Tuesday. If your child is struggling with their homework, please remind them to bring it in on Friday or Monday so that it can be completed in school with support. In addition to homework, children must read daily with an adult which should be recorded in their reading record books. These are checked daily in school. 


If you would like to challenge yourself outside of the classroom there are many fantastic opportunities on Purple Mash, a great online platform. Every child has a login which can be found in their reading diary. It is a great way to practise maths skills, coding and also practise their weekly spellings with a fun interactive quiz. Children can also email us directly with any questions they may have about their learning.
