Hello and welcome to Year 5!
Don't forget to check the webpage regularly for important news and updates!

This year, Ruby and Garnet will be having PE on Fridays and Carmine on Wednesdays. Please make sure your child brings in their PE kit and keeps it in school. Our lessons could be inside or out so they must have plimsolls and trainers.

 

Swimming lessons will take place on Tuesday mornings starting from 12th September and your child will need to bring in their swimming costume and towel in a bag each Tuesday.

We are determined to do our best to help the children succeed this year. As a result, the children have set themselves targets that they are working hard to achieve with our support. These include:

Reading at home at least once a week

All learning logs in on time

All PE/swimming kits in

20 numbercard stickers per week as a year group

Achieving 7/7 on our spellings every week

 We are hopeful that you will support your child in achieving these targets by reading often with them, encouraging them to practise their numbercard and ensuring they have the kits they need.

Thank you for your support. If you have any questions or queries, please contact us through the school office. We look forward to getting to know you all over the year! ?
