Dear parents and carers,

The year 5 team are excited to be back and we hope the children are too.  We are very much looking forward to getting to know the children and having a wonderful year of learning, and of course some fun!

Pencil cases will be provided for the children again this year. Please make sure that your child has a water bottle for in class - we ask that it is a bottle with a sport’s lid to avoid spills. 

Please read the class information below for details about homework and PE.  Year 5 will start swimming straight away this year, with the first session on Friday 10th September. 

As always we appreciate your support and we are looking forward to a great year together. 

Best wishes,

Mrs. Bartlett, Mr. Kendal and Mrs. Price.



Homework question sheets will be uploaded onto Google Classroom each week. The children will then complete their homework by hand in their homework books and bring it into class on the necessary day.

    -  English homework will be set on Monday and due in on Thursday.

    -  Maths homework will be set by Mr. Kendal on Friday and due in the following Friday.

    -  Spellings will be given on Monday and a spelling test completed on Friday.


The children will have their own set day to return their reading book each week, this will be written in their reading record.


We encourage the children to come and ask for help if they need some support, ideally before the the homework is due so that they still have chance to complete it independently. 
As always, we ask that you check your child’s homework and sign it to say that you are happy with their efforts.



The children will go swimming every Friday morning. Please see the letter above for details about what they will need.

They will also need both an indoor and outdoor PE kit which should be in school at all times.

Indoor kit: white t-shirt, blue shorts, socks and black pumps.

Outdoor kit: a plain blue tracksuit, white t-shirt, socks and trainers.
