It is great to welcome your children into Year 5 especially as they all look so smart in their new uniforms. We are excited about the year ahead and are looking forward to introducing the new Year 5 Curriculum. The promotion of independent learning will be a focus for the children this year in preparation for year six.
Attendance and punctuality
It is important that your child has good attendance with the government requirements being 98%. It is also important that your child arrives on time as this minimises disruption in the classroom.
Please ensure they come to school, on time, everyday
Your child will participate in PE on a Tuesday. Please ensure they have the full kit, labelled for ease of identification. Please check pump sizes regularly as you know how fast they grow. As the day is subject to change or there may be additional opportunities for sports, children can leave their kits in school and take them home at half term, unless they need washing sooner.
It is important that you encourage your child to read for 10 minutes each night and remember to sign your child's reading record.
Homework will be set every Friday and is due to be handed in on a Tuesday. Children will be asked to learn new spellings and practice times tables each week. Timestable tests will take place every Tuesday and spelling tests will take place every Friday.
Year 4 & 5's Residential Stay at Crosby Hall Educational Trust (CHET) 2019
The children had a fantastic time at CHET, the sun shone, there was plenty of fun and laughter, lots of new experiences and many memories made.
The children in Year 5 were given the opportunity to take part in the 'Bikeability' cycle safety programme. The children were taught how to signal, start and stop, mount and dismount and most importantly how to ride their bikes safely. The children had a great time and all that took part were awarded their Level 1 or Level 2 certificates and badges. Well done!
