Year 5 class info


PE Days – Tuesday and Thursday

Tuesday – Please come to school in PE kit and bring uniform in a bag to change into before lunch time.

Thursday – Please come to school in uniform and bring PE kit in a bag to change into after lunch time.


Snacks for play time

If possible, please send your child to school with a healthy snack for play time as quite a few children are complaining they’re hungry an hour or so before lunch time.


Water bottles

Please could you send a labelled, reusable water bottle into school each day. This will need to be sent home at the end of each day, washed at home and returned to school the following day.


Key skills

To help children with the curriculum, in light of what has happened over the last 6 months, it would be helpful if children could transfer key skills from school to home. This includes: reading daily (could be a book, magazine, something on a tablet/kindle), practising times tables, practising spellings. Each child has a login for: Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rockstars if you would like them to practise key skills on a device.
