Year Five 2020 - 2021
Miss Graves and Miss Whitfield
Welcome to Year 5!
We are so happy to finally welcome you back to school and to be starting a brand new school year! We have made lots of changes around school to ensure that all of the children settle back in well and to stay as safe as possible
There are a few changes to our new year five routine that you need to be aware of:
Homework - Homework will now go home with the children on a Tuesday and will need to be brought back into school on a Friday.
Reading Books - Children will be able to take reading books home as we encourage as much home reading as possible. As we are trying to limit the amount of objects that are brought into school daily, these reading books will only come back into school when the children have finished them. They will then choose a new book from our class library to take home.
P.E - Children need to bring P.E kits into school on a Monday and will be encouraged to take them home on a Friday. Our P.E lessons in year 5 currently take place on a Wednesday and a Friday but this may change.
In year 5 we have previously enjoyed trips throughout the year. We have not got any trips planned as yet but we are hopeful that this will change in the near furture. We have enjoyed trips to Pizza express to make pizzas for DT, Speak Hall when studying monarchs throughout history and Llandudno in the summer term for our Georgraphy topic of coastlines. These trips continue to cost £15.
As of Monday 14th September we are amending our uniform policy to allow children with pierced ears to wear one set of simple stud earrings if they so wish. We would still strongly recommend that children remove their earrings before coming to school, however if they are unable to do so you must sign a disclaimer.
By signing a disclaimer you are taking full responsibility for your child’s earrings and all health and safety risks associated with wearing them to school, which includes playtimes and PE lessons. Children may tape the back of their earrings for PE lessons to lessen the risk of injury, but school and staff cannot do this for them.
Please note that this disclaimer does not apply to swimming.
This amendment ONLY applies to earrings, other jewellery will not be permitted, including any additional piercings.
Please find below a list of useful home learning websites. These websites will aid your child's learning at home either after school or should the need come to isolate at home.
If you have any queries, please contact the school via email, phone call or speak to a member of staff at the Forest Road gate in the morning or after school.
We're looking forward to this year ahead,
