Welcome to Year 5 and the fabulous Class Picasso! Time is moving on for your children now as they reach their 10th birthday and journey towards the end of primary school. We have lots of work to complete this year so we will be focusing on achieving our full potential with lots of fun and laughter included.
During most days in Year 5, we will have English and Maths in the morning and then topic and sport learning in the afternoon. On some afternoons we will also have a Cr8 afternoon which allows the children to have a focused amount of time on Design and Technology, Art or Science projects.
Children in Year 5 are extremely lucky to have an eight week block of Forest Schools at a specific point during the year. This is an incredible opportunity to get to explore nature and develop outdoor survival skills with our fantastic forest school leader- Mr Saull-Hunt and his assistant Mrs Sinden. You will be notified in advance of when your child’s sessions will commence. Please see the Forest School tab to find out more.
Homework will be given out on a Thursday and will be due in the following Wednesday. In addition to this, we would like the children to read at least four times a week for at least fifteen minutes each time.
The children will have two PE sessions a week on Mondays and Fridays. Although these will be our usual PE slots, please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school every day in case there is a timetable change.
Please pop in any day after school if there is anything you would like to discuss or if you have any concerns. We are looking forward to a year filled with amazing learning and lots of fun.
