Welcome to Giants!
Our Class Routine:
Miss Freeman is the class teacher;
Mrs. Montgomery teaches on a Thursday afternoon;
PE takes place on a Wednesday afternoon and children will need to come to school in their PE kits on this day.
Your child has been given a Homework Planner to enable them to become more independent with personal organisation. This planner should be brought to school every day, along with their AR reading book.
Spellings are given on a Monday and tested the following Monday morning. They need to be practised regularly at home.
Giants should be reading at home at least 3 x a week and receiving 3 adult signatures.
Mathletics tasks are often set by Miss Freeman to practise maths concepts taught in class. The children should be aiming to achieve a certificate each week (1000 points).
Times Tables Rock Stars is a website that your child should use to practise their times tables.
Spellings are handed out an a Monday and should be practised at home, ready for the spelling test on the following Monday. Have a look at the Spelling Menu below to find a range of different ways to practise!
In order to develop as readers, Giants should be reading at home at least 3 times a week. This should mainly be your AR reading book but it could also included other things such as magazines, newspapers or picture books. When you have finished a book make sure to see if it has an AR quiz for you to complete!

Below is the Year 5 'Maths Facts' sheet for you to use at home. Alongside the Mathletics tasks that are sometimes set, there are a range of ways that Giants can practise their maths skills at home. Look through the following websites to see what you can do.
