This year the Y5 staff are Mr Perry, Miss Bates and Mrs Poynton. We look forward to teaching you all!


This year, our P.E. lesson will be on a Monday - please ensure that you come to school dressed in appropriate P.E. kit on a Monday morning.


Year 5 will also be swimming on a Wedneday afternoon - we will provide more information about this over the coming weeks.


Weekly homework will be set on Seesaw every Friday and needs to be completed by the following Thursday. If your child is struggling to complete their homework, they should speak to a Year 5 teacher early on in the week.


Along with weekly homework, we would like to remind parents that their children should also be reading for at least 10 minutes a day. This could be their school reading book, a reading book from home, or via Big Cat Collins, the online reading scheme that our school subscribes to. Your child has login details for this site.


Children also have logins to access Times Tables Rock Stars, and Mathletics.

Bikeability: Year 5 worked extremely hard to develop their bike riding skills. Some children went from being a non-rider to being able to ride, which is an amazing achievement. Lots of children received their Level 1 award, and many also achieved Level 2.

What an exciting week we're having! Look at all the amazing costumes the children have worn to celebrate reading. Well done everyone yes

After watching a performance of ‘The Hobbit’ we were lucky enough to take part in a workshop with the cast. They talked us through how they put their productions together, and even gave us some backstage secrets. Some brave volunteers then performed a short scene from the play.
