Welcome to Year 5

We are very much looking forward to welcoming the children back at 8:45am on Wednesday 6th September and hope that you have all had a wonderful Summer break! We are sure that your children will have a fabulous time in Year 5 and we would encourage you to talk to the children about their learning to find out the many exciting things that they will have been up to!

We are always happy to meet with parents to discuss any concerns or to answer questions about the children and their learning. If you wish to discuss anything with us then please make an appointment at the office or ask one of us when we might be available to meet with you.

Remember to check the school website regularly for updates on learning and events taking place at school.

Travel back in time to the 1500's and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history.

Flex your detective muscles and become a criminal investigator! Will you find out the facts or will the evidence from the past bemuse you? How will you find the accused.... innocent or guilty?

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues

We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each week.

We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.

In Year 5 homework is vitally important for the children, as it helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on during the week.

We urge you to support and encourage your children with their homework and do let us know if the homework is too difficult or indeed too easy! 

We will provide your child with a book in which to complete homework, and stick in any sheets.  We encourage the children to keep their homework book in pristine condition, taking pride in, and celebrating, their home learning.  We do not allow children to draw on the cover of any of their books.

 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be handed in (in the homework book) on a Tuesday.



In addition all children should continue to read at home, at least three times a week with an adult, and then have their reading records signed.

Children should have their reading records and reading books in school every day, but reading records will be checked by one of the Y5 team once a week.
