Year 5

Dear Parents/Carers,


Happy New Year! We hope you had a restful Christmas break and are looking forward to Term 3. We're looking forward to welcoming the children back and hearing about their holidays.  


We will use the website and the school newsletter as our main forms of communication with you so please check in regularly to find out what is going on and what the children have been doing. You can look at the photos to see what the children have been up to in their classes and see some examples of the brilliant work that they have been producing. 


Please keep an eye on the website or contact your teacher if you have any questions about our topics this term.


Homework Expectations 

Reading journals should be in school each day, but homework tasks will be handed out to the children on Monday, they will have the opportunity to record this in their reading logs.

The weekly homework activities will be linked to the children's learning and our topics. We won't always expect the children to be handing in tasks to be marked, some activities can be completed at home, but they will be important in supporting the skills that the children will be learning in school. Please use your reading logs to record the children's reading and any homework tasks you have completed - speak to your teacher if you have any questions about this. 


This term, PE will be:

Week 1

5BH – Monday and Friday

5FC – Tuesday and Wednesday

5G – Tuesday and Thursday

5H – Tuesday & Friday


Week 2

5BH – Monday and Friday

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher. Our e-mail addresses will be displayed at the end of this message.


Best wishes,


The Year 5 Team.
