Welcome to Year 5 - 2023-2024

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Year 5! Please find below some information about this year and have a look at our termly newsletter below. We are looking forward to having you back for our Summer Term where we will hopefully enjoy the nice weather.

Things to Bring:

We will make sure that all equipment for learning is available at school. If your child would like to, they can bring in a sensible pencil case with any additional colouring pencils or pens they would like to use on special occasions that we can leave in our bags until they are needed. We will continue to use the school pens for writing in class. Children are advised to also bring a water bottle in to keep on their tables. 


Our PE days this term are Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure you bring in an indoor PE kit in a named bag at the start of the term which can be left in school. 

If your child participates in an afterschool sports club, they will be changing in school so should come to school wearing their school uniform. 

Swimming starts the first Friday back after the Easter break. Please make sure to check the letter for additional information. 


Celebration Assembly, #Hotchocolate and Golden Table

Each week a child, from each class, will be chosen to be the star of the week. Parents are invited to join this celebration on Monday afternoons at 2.45pm. If your child is chosen as star, you will receive a smartmessage/email through School Spider the Thursday prior to the assembly.

During this assembly we will also announce who will be on eating their lunch on our golden table. Children are chosen during the week by MDAs, lunchtime coaches and teachers, for displaying excellent behaviour during lunchtimes. These children choose a friend and they both get an early lunch pass to join a member of staff on the golden table.


Homework, Diaries and Spellings

Homework will be set on Fridays and will be expected to be returned on the following Thursday unless otherwise discussed. Spellings will be given out and tested on Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child brings in their homework diaries into school every day (the best place to keep them is in their bag!). 


Weekly Blogs

Keep a look out for our weekly blogs below to keep you updated - we will try to write them on a Friday afternoon to summarise our week.

Thank you, 

Mr Hutchinson and Mrs Gent
