Welcome to 5LB
Please email us any work you have completed at home or use google classroom to submit your work. We will look forward to seeing what you have achieved!
Throughout the week, please keep practising your spellings daily (I will put a variety of spellings on google classroom every Monday for you to practice to do your own test at home and send me your results) and keep your timestables strong by using TT rockstars daily at the website https://ttrockstars.com/
This class homepage will display key dates, information on what your child is learning and will be regularly updated with spellings, times tables, weekly photos and ACE winners. .
Here's to a fantastic year ahead.

Spellings will be set and sent out on a Monday with children receiving a paper copy. If that paper copy for whatever reason is lost, a copy of the spellings will always be found in this section of the website. A test will take place on a Friday where scores are recorded on the children's report cards. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask Miss Burkitt, Mrs Bowker or Mrs Tweedale.
Times tables will be set and sent out on a Friday with children receiving a paper copy. However, if lost the timestable focus will always be found on this section of the website. A test will take place the following Friday where scores will be recorded on children's report cards.
It is incredibly important that the children know all their timestables up to 12x12. Quick recall is paramount in order to help them with all sorts of maths.
This week we will be looking at...
A fantastic home learning device to promote fluent timetable recalls. This website is fun and engaging for the children.
Homework will be given out on a Thursday and will need to be handed in on a Tuesday. The children will get English and Maths work.
