PE: Year 5 PE lessons will take place on Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning in the autumn term. The children will come to school wearing their PE kit on this day.   Year 5 are due to have swimming in Spring 2. I will update you on this nearer the time.   The PE kit is a plain white t-shirt and black shorts/joggers with no logo. Please ensure your child has the appropriate PE uniform and that it is labelled. Children should not wear earrings/jewellery on a PE day.   Please ensure your child wears school jumper/cardigan on a PE day over their PE kit.

Homework: Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Children will have a homework book to complete the work in.

Reading Books: Reading books are also the children’s Guided Reading books. Reading books are changed dependent on when the book is finished in the guided reading group. Reading packs are to be brought in every day. If a book is lost, then there may be a charge. Children should read daily at home.

Topic: The children will learn the following topics this year: Invaders: Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, Extreme Survival: Canada and Ancient Greeks.

 Water Bottles: Water Bottles are provided for each child and filled with fresh water every morning.

Medical Concerns:  If your child requires an inhaler or other medication please ensure a medical form has been completed and all medication is in date.

Uniform: Please ensure all uniform (including ties) are clearly labelled with your child’s name. 

 ClassDojo:  Year 5 will be using ClassDojo as a reward system (house points) and to keep you informed of homework and to answer any questions you may have if you can’t see me during the school day.  If you are not linked to ClassDojo please see Mrs Walker for a link sheet. 

Please feel free to message me with any concerns or questions.  I will reply as soon as possible
