Year 5

Update 26.02.21

We are sure you were all as pleased as we were at the announcement of being able to welcome all children back on Monday 8th March.


Next week all teachers and teaching assistants will be in school planning for the safe arrival of our wonderful year 5 children. There are various staff meetings taking place during the week and for that reason we will have to cancel Thursday morning Teams meetings. We will also be cancelling our Friday morning meetings as we will have our parent calls between 9am - 12pm.


A reminder that children need to check their Teams calendar, as we have various meetings and lessons taking place with one of our TAs or the intervention teachers. If there is a reason why your child can not attend the TA or teacher should be notified.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents who have been supportive and said kind words to us as we have navigated our way around this new platform of teaching. We hope you all have a lovely final week of home learning.

Every week we will be setting spellings for the children to learn, these will be tested the following Monday. We will also have tasks set on MyMaths to embed the learning that has taken place in class, if you are struggling with the activity then please have a look at the lesson to help you.

Welcome to Year 5

Who you will meet in Year 5

5SK: Mrs Kawagoe, Mrs Towson and Mr Lovegrove

5HD: Mrs Dhesi, Mr King and Mrs Fairhurst



Spellings are tested on a Monday and new words are also given out on a Monday. Children must remember to bring in their homework books on this day so that they write their score down and copy out the new words that are given.


Each child has been given their own stationery and equipment to be used in class. Nothing will need to be brought in from home. Can we 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.


Just a reminder that on PE days children may come to school wearing their PE kit. Activities will be chosen carefully so that we make effective use of space, accommodate the British weather and to avoid contact sports. Year 5 PE days are as follows:

5SK – Wednesday (outdoors) and Friday (indoor)

5HD – Monday (indoors) and Wednesday (outdoor)


Thank you for all your continued support and patience as we navigate through our ‘new normal’. Should you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact us, the easiest way will be via the office email.
