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

This term, Ruby will have PE on Tuesdays and Fridasy, Garnet on Wednesdays and Fridays and Carmine on Mondays and 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. 

 

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 twice a week

Getting tested for a number card sticker at least once a week

All PE kits in

Doing a good deed
Getting no detentions

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!
