Here are some key pieces of information for the next few weeks:



We have already got a local trip organised for this half term. On Tuesday 11th October, we will be going on a Pilgrim Day to Chester Cathedral. More details will follow nearer the time.  


Share your learning session 

On Wednesday 12th October at 9am, you are invited to come into school to look at your child’s books and see what they’ve been doing in class. 


Parent Evenings 

The autumn parent evenings will take place during the week beginning the 17th October - this will be a chance to hear how your child has settled into Year 5. More information on how to sign up for these will be given out nearer the time.  



PE days for Year 5 are: 

5HER - Monday 

5LER – Friday 

We would appreciate it greatly if your child can come to school in their PE kit- they will not need to bring their uniform to change into. We have spoken to the children about what constitutes their PE kit; however, just as a reminder it is black/ navy shorts, a plain white t-shirt and trainers. As the children will be doing most PE lessons outside- weather permitting of course- joggers/ leggings and a long sleeve top would be appropriate. 


Outdoor Learning 

 is year, all Year 5 children will be taking part in Outdoor Learning. 5LER will be taking part in these sessions during the first half of the autumn term and then 5HER in the second half of the autumn term; these sessions will take place on a Thursday afternoon in all weather. Therefore, for the first half of the autumn term, 5LER, will need to come to school every Thursday in suitable clothing that you do not mind if they get dirty. These will need to include a waterproof coat, long sleeved top, long trousers and sensible shoes (no open toes).  




We would really appreciate it if you could support your child with reading. In Year 5, this could include you sharing the reading with your child and/or having discussions about what they are reading. Although we will remind them of the need to regularly change their book once completed, they also need to work on becoming increasingly independent and reminding themselves. Reading for pleasure and enjoyment is something that we will continue to encourage; any reading completed can be written in their reading record book. We would like them to read at least 4 times throughout the week; their reading record books will be collected in on a Friday to celebrate all that has happened throughout the week. 



Each week, your child will have a spelling session, they will then have a piece of homework set on a Wednesday to be completed by the following Wednesday.  This can be found by logging on to 'spellingframe'. 



Maths homework will be using the online programme ‘My Maths’; this will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday. 




At the beginning and end of the school day, there will always be a member of the Year 5 team on the door; please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns. Alternatively, you could contact us via the home-learning email addresses shown below.
