Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Please find relevant information relating to this term.


PE lessons

P.E. sessions are currently on Fridays. Please allow your child to wear their PE kits to school on that day. As the cold weather approaches, dark jogging bottoms and tougher trainers will become more appropriate to wear.



Weekly homework will be sent out on Friday. Due to COVID guidelines regarding contamination, please do not return the homework to school. We would greatly appreciate a photograph to be sent via the Seesaw app to show your children's work. 


Reading books

Children's reading books will be collected on Monday for changing. If your child has not finished their book, they may keep it for longer to read. Likewise, they can use their Read Theory accounts and read and respond to questions if they have finished their book.
