Home Support

Many parents have asked how they might support their child at home. Please check the 'Our Learning' star and the 'Useful Resources' star in the Year 5 page. The teachers will endeavour to keep you up-dated with the content of the learning taking place in the classroom.

Please try to practice key/commonly used spellings, Times Tables and to read with your child.

Thank you so much for your support.

Thank you
Thank you to everyone who took part in the 'non single-use plastic' lunchtime yesterday. the children noticed the reduction in the presence of plastic but also discussed how difficult it is to buy food items which are not packaged using plastic.
Non single-use plastic lunch.
Year 5 is currently asking the question 'Is Plastic Drastic?' As part of this we would like to encourage Years 5&6 to attempt a 'non single-use plastic free lunch' next Wednesday the 21st of October 2020. Re-useable containers are of course allowed. Children having school lunches will be discussing any items provided (in plastic) that they are given and what the alternative might be.

The children have settled back into school routines really well, and more structured learning is now well underway. The children are showing that they are eager to learn and to fully experience and enjoy all aspects of school life.


If you have any concerns about your child, please use the new parent email channel and the teachers will endeavour to get back to you as soon as they can.



The children are going to be creating their own musical pieces, practising and performing using 'recyclable materials.' We will be collecting plastic bottles, thin cardboard (cereal boxes) etc up until next Wednesday (14th October) when we can 'quarantine' the items for more than 72 hours before use. Please make sure that any plastic items are washed thoroughly. Thank you.



We would suggest that the children bring their PE kits in on Monday and take home for washing on Friday.



We already have a number of lost property items. Please make sure that all clothing and lunchtime items are named. Thank you.


Thank you SO much for supporting the children in making such a successful start to Year 5


From The Year 5 Team

Welcome Back!


We are SO pleased to have welcomed all of the children back safe and well. We are already into the third week which is hard to believe!  The children have all settled really well and are now truly getting to grips with their learning. 


The children look really smart in their uniforms and have shown that they can organise themselves independently when they arrive in the morning. Please make sure that PE kits are in school on Monday and can be taken home for a wash on Friday. As the weather begins to turn, a waterproof coat will definitely be needed. 


Please click on the other stars on the Year 5 page to get an idea of what the children are learning, to see photographs of some of them in action and to see useful support resources.


Should you wish to contact your child's teacher, please email/phone the office and they will pass on the message.


Many thanks for your support and encouragement.


From, The Year 5 Team
