Year 5 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 5
Mrs Whiteside and Mrs Button
Autumn Term 1
We are so happy that we are able to welcome everyone back to school and hope that you have all had an amazing summer break. You all look fabulous in your school uniform and have grown so much! We are ready for an exciting half term and hope that you are too!
Our first week will, as usual, be 'Mission Week' and this year our focus is on 50 years of our fabulous school. Just like the Olympics and the Euros, our celebrations had to wait, but we are ready to get started.
Further information about our topics will follow shortly.
If you have any questions or concerns, or anything impotant to tell us, please email the class 5 email address:
Many thanks for your support.
Let’s work together to make this a fantastic year
for the children of Class 5.
Mrs Whiteside and Mrs Button.
Class Five Responsibilities
Class Five will receive spellings on a Friday allowing them to practice for their spelling test on the following Friday. The back of the spelling sheet includes a place for children to look up and write down the meaning of each word. The completed spelling sheet must be returned to school on Friday mornings.
Maths and English Homework will be given on a Friday. Maths Homework should be completed for the following Tuesday and English for the following Thursday.
Children are encouraged to be prepared for each day of school life. P.E. is on a Tuesday and a Thursday. On P.E. days children should come to school wearing their P.E. kit with joggers or shorts, a sweatshirt and trainers.
