Dear Parents and Carers,


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 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.


We are excited to use our outdoor learning environments including the Forest School area during the spring term, learning about the world around us and how to look after it. Hogwarts will be doing this on Mondays, and Narnia will do this on Fridays. Please come to school on these days wearing your outdoor clothing and a spare pair of shoes. We recommend: Gloves, Waterproof Coat, Trousers, Thick Socks, Wellies. Sun cream and hats are good ideas as the weather improves!


P.E will be taught on Wednesday 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.
