Year 5 Coffee morning presentation

At the start of each year, our new Year 5 parents are invited to a coffee morning at St Lawrence to meet the Year 5 team and to find out more about Year 5. Here is the presentation that was given at the coffee morning in September 2019.

Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs)

Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) are the core facts that children need to be able to recall quickly in order to support their work across the numeracy curriculum.

Each year group will have a new focus for each half term. Although each fact will be introduced and practised in some lesson starters, we would ask that you support your child by practising with them at home. The new target will be sent out each half term, with a top tips sheet to help you and your child.

Please speak to your child's class teacher if you would like any further information or support.
