Welcome to Year 5!
This page will be updated with information throughout the year. Keep popping in to find out what is going on in year 5.
Meet the teachers:
PE kits should be in school at all times. Children will take them home at half term to be washed and ready for the next half term. The kit should include: a white t-shirt, royal blue shorts and black PE pumps. Plain black or navy jogging bottoms can be worn in the winter. PE kits can be purchased from the office. Please make sure that your child takes off any jewellery before coming into school. If your child is unable to participate in PE, please send them in with a note.
PE lessons take place on:
Tuesday - 5W & 5H
Wednesday - 5M
Swimming lessons will take place on Thursday mornings. Children will need to make sure they bring their swimming kit on Thursday morning and return home with it the same day. The kit should include: Appropriate swimming costume (No beach wear), towel, swimming hat (essential), goggles (optional), hair bobble.
Please make sure that your child takes off any jewellery before coming into school. If religious bands are worn, please make sure they are covered up for health and safety. If your child is unable to participate in swimming, please send them in with a note stating the reason why and your child will be put into another class.
5H & 5W please send your child with a snack.
5M Due to the times of the minibuses, please provide your child with a packed lunch. (Any children that are free school meals, please order a packed lunch from the canteen.)
Homework is set every week online. For Math's homework we will be encouraging children to use Times Table Rockstars and English homework will be set on Education City. The children will be given their logins again and must be kept in a safe place. If you have any problems accessing the internet please speak to your class teacher.

Please can you encourage and remind children to wear black school shoes to school and not trainers. Our children look so smart when they are in full school uniform and we would like the same standards for everyone.
Also, a gentle reminder that mobile phones are not permitted to be brought into school. If there is a particular reason why your child needs to bring a phone into school, please speak to the office staff as there are certain conditions that are outlined in a letter and a form needs to be signed.
