Welcome to Year 5

from Mrs Whiteside and Mrs Quinn!



Welcome back after the Christmas holidays. We are delighted to see you and are looking forward to continuing working together this year.

We start the new year with our 'Explore' term during which we will be investigating renwable and non-renwable energy sources and learning about Europe. Later this month we have a Cultural Arts Day with Range High School (details will follow soon) and excitement is building towards our residential to Robinwood - we can't wait!

Keep checking the website for further information and updates.

If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to ask. Our door is always open.


Class Five Responsibilities

Each child in Class Five has a Reading Record and it is their responsibilty to read at home and record what they have read in their book. If a family member could initial their record they will receive a dojo when it is returned to school.

Class Five will receive spellings on a Friday allowing them to practice for their spelling test on the following Friday.

Class Five are encouraged to be prepared for each day of school life. Saxophone takes place on a Monday afternoon and P.E. on a Wednesday and a Thursday. On P.E.days children should come to school wearing their P.E. kit with joggers, a sweatshirt and trainers.
