Year Five

Welcome to Year 5!

Please find the relevant information below.


PE lessons

P.E. sessions are currently on Tuesdays. 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.



Children in Year 5 will be taking part in swimming lessons. Please ensure that the children come to school on Fridays with towel, swimming costume and a bag to put their items into. Goggles and a swim cap are optional



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. Children are encouraged to use MyOn, as well as Accelerated Reader, to aid comprehension skills.
