Welcome to Year 5 at Ainslie School
In 2016, our year 5 comprises of two classes:
|Senior Team Leader||Anne Westerman|
|5H classroom teacher, West Wing||Vicki Harrington|
|5F classroom teacher, West Wing||Jo Francis|
Your child has progressed to the senior school, the final stage of primary school.
In year 5 students learn to comprehend complex texts and write in a variety of genres using correct structure, language, grammar and punctuation. In mathematics students learn to use a range of strategies to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems supported by Middle Years Mental Computation.
Students in year 5 have the opportunity to participate in extra curriculum activities such as year 5 band, music lessons, chess, senior voices and Kulture Break dance.
All Year 5 students sit for the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in May. It involves four tests that cover numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar.
The results of the NAPLAN test help teachers meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a report of your child's achievement in the NAPLAN test. The results tell you how your child is progressing in these areas and can guide the learning support you give your child at home.
