Welcome to Year 5
Welcome back everyone! I hope you have all had a very relaxing Summer Holidays. There are a few notices I want to make you aware of for this year.
Our class PE days this half term are Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has the full and correct PE kit on these days.
As I am sure you know, reading is an essential part of your child’s education. This year, the student council are continuing to run a reading challenge with the chance to win a small trophy for the class each week.
The minimum time spent reading at home is three times a week. If your child reads every night of the week they become a Year 5 reading champion!
Outdoor learning will continue as usual on a Friday. It is important your child has an appropriate change of clothes – Long sleeves and trousers and suitable footwear.
Class Dojo will continue to be used this year. It is a great space where you can view photos, videos and information about what is happening in Year 5 and across the school. If you require another invite, please don’t hesitate to ask.
A homework menu will be given out at the beginning of each half term. Your child will need to complete a minimum of 5 activities each half term, handing one piece in each week on a Thursday. There is a homework club available if help or resources are needed.
As it is the beginning of a new school year, many of you may have new belongings. Please can you ensure that all belongings and named (PE Kits – Wellies – School Uniform – Bags – Coats – Water bottles etc).
