We would like to welcome you back to what we know will be an EPIC Year. We hope you are well and that the children are ready for another busy school year.
The Year 5 team this year are:
Class 11 - Miss Thomas
Class 12 - Miss Shera
Mrs Keddle and Mrs Joseph will also be supporting the children' learning, everyday.
As a school we love to read and think this is really important. It is the expectation that children read for 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Please ensure that you sign your child’s reading record each day that they read. The children must then return their record to school each day in order for their home reading to be recorded. The children can borrow books from their classroom or the school library. The children should be completing accelerated reader quizzes, when they have finished their book, and are working towards prizes in their class. As well as this, the children can earn badges for each time they read at home.

This term our class reader is: Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll
Times Table Rockstars
This year, there will be a big focus on times tables in Year 5. Your children will have their logins and instructions on how to access the site sent home. There will be lots of exciting battles and challenges set on Times Table Rockstars to ensure learning them is made fun.
You can access TTRS here -
This term, we require the children to bring their PE kits into school on their PE days. This should include joggers, shorts or leggings with a house t-shirt or plain t-shirt and a hoodie or jacket for when it is cold outside.
Class 11 - Wednesday/Friday
Class 12 - Wednesday/Thursday
Class 11 are swimming every Wednesday, this term (Autumn 1) and Class 12 will start their sessions, next term (Autumn 2). More information will be sent via Arbor.
