5BM  Mr Mooney, 5KK Mr and Mrs Keal. Also in Year Five we will be assisted by Mrs Towson, Mrs Webb, Miss White and Mrs Smith.

Overview 25/10/21- Have a wonderful half term! Thank you for all of your support during this first half term and it was lovely to see you all at Parent's Evening :)

A note on swimming

Swimming will commence on 6th September 2021 and will run through until further notice.

Children will be expected to be dressed in PE kit for easy changing. Please do not have swimwear under clothes. 

Earrings must be removed and left at home. 

Goggles will not be needed during week one but may be worn on completion of parent consent slip (see previous swimming news letter).

Children will be required to bring:

  • Swimsuit
  • Towel
  • Swimming Hat
  • Separate bag for kit (not school bag)
  • Please do not pack any shampoos or shower gels


If your child has an inhaler, please ensure that it is in school. Children will be collected between 3:30-3:45 on Mondays only.



We hope you have had a relaxing summer and are looking forward to the new academic year. During the autumn term we shall be extending our understanding of the Earth and space. We shall also be investigating materials around us and countries around the world. Due to not being able to go on the Year 4 overnight trip, we are hopeful of rearranging this for October. 


Some housekeeping; swimming will begin on September 6th 2021 and we will be using the facilities at Market Harborough Leisure Centre. This will be every Monday thereafter until further notice. Tuesday will be PE days (in school) and children will be expected to arrive at school in kit on that day. Spelling rules will be given out on a Monday and will be checked the following week. Spellings will be found in the children's Reading Records as well as on the Spelling Shed website. Continued use of online systems such as Spelling Shed and TT Rockstars are to be encouraged.


Each child has been given their own stationery and equipment to be used in class. Nothing will need to be brought in from home. We would like to remind you all that there should be no jewellery or large hair accessories worn, all long hair should be tied up using a plain hair tie.


As always, reading and discussing text with your child is very beneficial and we appreciate all of the support that you can give to your child in this area. 


Thank you,

Year 5 Team smiley



Every week we will be setting spellings for the children to learn, these will be tested the following Monday. We have published a homework grid below and would encourage children to complete as many tasks as possible.
