Year 5

Dressing for the weather!

As all our windows and doors are open at all times - in keeping with Government guidance - it can get chilly in the classroom, especially in the mornings.  Please ensure that your child always has their jumper with them and consider if they need a vest under their shirt.

Forest School


Each class has two Forest School afternoons this half term. 


These will take place on the following Mondays:

5R        14th September and 5th October

5J         21st September and 12th October

5B        28th September and 19th October


On their Forest School days, children should be dressed in their school shirt and jumper/cardigan and jogging bottoms or sports leggings. They must have suitable footwear such as trainers.


While we are enjoying the current warm weather, please apply sunscreen before coming to school if your child needs this and make sure your child has a sunhat. As the weather gets colder and potentially wetter, a coat, hat and gloves will be needed. 

Homework tasks sent home on Friday 25th September (due in by Wednesday 30th September)

Welcome to Year 5 September 2020

Welcome to Year 5! There are three classes in Year 5 this year, taught by Mrs Bailey, Mrs Jarvis and Mrs Richards. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Green, Mrs Clark and Mrs West. On this page, you will find useful information about Year 5 including examples of the exciting topics we will be learning, details of the things you need to remember to bring to school and photos of our learning.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! You can contact us via the school office by phone or email or you can speak to us at the end of the school day. 


“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”  Plato.

We would like you to try to read at home every day. You can read to yourself or to an adult. Please make sure that you bring your book to school each day. This could be a book from home or one you have borrowed from school - make  sure you choose something that interests and excites you! 


The following website has lots of brilliant ideas to inspire you:



As part of our Music curriculum, you will be learning to play the recorder. You may wish to buy your own recorder so that you can practise at home. We do have recorders in school for you to borrow during lessons, so this isn't essential. 



Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure that you have suitable PE kit in school on these days. 


Suitable PE kit is a white t-shirt, school PE shirt or house t-shirt and dark shorts or dark joggers, dark sweatshirt and trainers. 


If you have pierced ears, you will need to remove your earrings or bring in some tape to cover them during PE. If your hair is longer than shoulder length, it must be tied back. 


One of our PE units is an amazing dance scheme produced by the Royal Ballet. You may wish to buy ballet shoes or other soft dance shoes such as jazz shoes for this. These aren't essential as bare feet are fine.  



It is important that to stay hydrated, so please remember to bring in a named water bottle. You can bring in a snack for break time. Please remember that snacks must be fresh fruit or vegetables.



We will send home two pieces of homework each week. 

          - Maths

          - English, Science or topic 

Occasionally, we may set a project which takes longer to complete. 


All homework is given out on Friday and should be handed in by the following Wednesday.
