Introduction to Year 5

Dear Parents, Carers and children,


Welcome to our Year 5 webpage. Here you will find everything you and your parents need to know about your year group. Below, you will find links to homework, letters and announcements, PE and our class blog and gallery.  We are delighted to welcome you back to school.


Our classrooms are named after some of the greatest fictional settings in children’s literature, in J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter, J.R Tolkien's The Hobbit and C.S Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia respectively.  We are a school that loves reading, and you can look forward to plenty of enjoyable reads this year linking to our I.P.C units. From Space to Ancient Greece to Ernest Shackleton’s voyage to Antarctica, we will be covering exciting units all through the year.


P.E will be taught on Tuesday afternoons. You may arrive in school wearing your P.E kit, and are encouraged to have jumpers and coats to be able to use our outside spaces as normal on these days.


Homework is a little more streamlined this year. You will be given a set of spellings to learn every week. You will receive your words on a Friday and you will be tested the following Friday. We will also still expect you to read at home, for at least 20 minutes 3 times per week.  As in previous years we will be earning stars to complete bookmarks - one gold star for every 50 pages read. The more you read, the more stars you will earn. We will also be sending home suggestions for home learning projects you could try linked to our in-school topics. If you bring in a home learning project (or send photos), we will share and celebrate these with the whole class.


Please look at this page regularly, as we will update as often as possible.


Best Wishes


Phil Nugent and Rose Pearce
