Bringing out the Best

Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 page.

We have two classes in Year 5. One is taught by Mrs Palmer and the other is taught by Miss Dines. 

Remember: The Year 5 school day will now be from 8:40 a.m. - 3:10 p.m.

PE: PE will be on a Monday for Miss Dines class. Please ensure that you wear your PE kit to school every PE day as we will not be getting changed prior to the lesson. Children must not wear any earrings or jewellery on PE days. This is an important part of our school curriculum, and we encourage all children to take part.  Appropriate PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black, navy or grey shorts or jogging bottoms/leggings and suitable footwear such as trainers or plimsolls. Please do not let your child wear any costume jewellery or earrings on PE days.

Swimming: If you are in Mrs Palmers class, you will be swimming this term, your teacher will let you know when your class has a swimming lesson on a Thursday.

A labelled water bottle should be brought in daily to make sure your child has access to water at all times especially outside when doing PE.

Reading: Children are expected to be responsible for bringing in their reading diaries and books every day.  We will continue with the 10-minute pledge, where we promise to read 10 minutes to your child every day - with you reading with them for another 10 minutes each day at home. 

Homework : Homework will be set every week on a Friday and needs to be returned by Wednesday. It will be a combination of maths, spelling and reading. Topic/ project homework will be sent out at the end of each half term, ready to be brought in for the beginning of the next. 

All children will be given a pencil case with equipment, so we ask that they don't bring in their own. 

We are all looking forward to working with you. If you have any questions please ask.
