Welcome to 5J with Miss Jones
Happy New Year! I am very much looking forward to the spring term with 5J. We have lots of exciting things planned, so please refer to the tabs at the bottom of this page for regular updates! As usual, if you need anything, please don't hesitate to contact me. Please note that we have a new PE day and Year 5 pupils now need to wear their PE kit to school on a Monday.
Reading books and records have been sent home and will need to be brought in to school daily. Please engage in a range of books at home with your child as often as possible. In Year 5, we endeavour to promote a love for reading and encourage pupils to read many different fiction and non-fiction books so that pupils can learn what genres they love to read the most. Every time your child reads at home, please sign in the reading record so we can keep a log of different genres read. Thank you.
Maths, Reading and Spellings homework will now be set each Monday and be due in by the following Monday. Reading will be allocated on Purple Mash, while other weekly homework tasks will be found on the VLE. House Points will be awarded for each activity completed so please help your child to set aside some time to complete these activities each week.
In Year 5, our PE for the second part of the autumn term is Friday. Please remember to send your child into school wearing their PE kit, including pumps/trainers and their school jumper.
Please remember to send your child into school in the correct uniform, with long hair tied up. Please ensure your child wears sensible shoes and brings a coat during autumn/winter months.
Your child is welcome to bring in a healthy snack for their morning/afternoon break times.

Well done to our School Council Representatives and our Eco Council Representatives!
These four pupils were voted to be our class representatives after confidently presenting their manifestos. We all thoroughly enjoyed being part of a democratic process and those who weren't successful this year showed resilience and congratulated our elected representatives!
The most fun part! Please find photos and information of fun activities we've been doing for each of our topics, which will be regularly updated throughout the year.
