Welcome to Year 5 - Nightingale
Welcome to Year 5 Nightingale
Welcome to the Nightingale Class page! Myself (Mrs Henderson) and Mr Chatterton are looking forward to teaching you this year.
Our expectations are very high for Year 5 this year – we expect every child to give us their best in the classroom, and behaviour to meet the high standards that already exist in school. Our classroom will be a challenging place for children to grow as learners, where they are happy to have a go and mistakes are a powerful tool rather than something to be scared of.
Homework will be set each Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday. It is also expected that children in Y5 read at least three times each week. Reading is an essential life skill, and needs to be nurtured from an early age, both at home and school. Next year, the children will sit their SATs, so now is the time to develop fluency, pace, and comprehension in reading.
Due to the current restrictions in place to enhance the safety of us all, if anyone needs to speak to me, let me know, and I will give you a telephone call.
Mrs Henderson and Mr Chatterton
