Year 5P

Mrs Taylor's Class 5P

Welcome back! I hope that you have all had an amazing summer break and that you are rested and ready for an exciting new school year. 


We have lots of exciting learning opportunities during the Autumn Term. We will be taking a trip back in time to learn about the Anglo-Saxons as well as looking at the work of some incredible artists and using this as inspiration within our own artwork. 



General Information 



Here at St Patrick's we aim to foster a love of reading. Children are encouraged to choose books from our class library or to bring in their own books from home. I love finding new stories and authors to read!

In Year 5 reading for pleasure is a wonderful way to relax and unwind and we encourage all children to aim to read for at least 20 minutes a day. 


Our current class novel is 'This Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo.



Please let school know if any of your contact details have changed (phone number, email, addresses) in the event we need to call home or contact you.



Please ensure that all uniform is clearly labelled and that during wet/cold weather that the children have a suitable coat in school with them. 




We will begin sending homework on Monday 18th September.

We will post spellings, English and Maths homework every Monday on Purple Mash to be completed by the following Monday with the children tested on their spellings each week. Please encourage your children to complete their homework every week as well as reading each night (approximately 20-30mins).


Completing homework on time, in an organised and structured way are excellent habits to encourage and form a key part in consolidating their learning. Revising times tables will also help your child with key elements of Maths.

If your child is finding homework a challenge please don’t hesitate to let me know and we can discuss ways in which I can support them.



PE session will take place every  Monday. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit – branded shorts etc are not part of school uniform.  


This half term will be going swimming for our 2nd PE session. This will take place on a Thursday morning, starting on Thursday 14th September. Please ensure that children bring their swimming kits to school each week. They will need a swimming costume/swimming trunks, a towel and a swimming hat. 




A quick reminder -if your child has a medical condition that staff need to know about, please inform school as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, is not out of date and a new form has been completed and handed into the office or class teacher. 



As we are a ‘Healthy School’ we would like to remind parents that a healthy snack at playtime is encouraged. Please don’t send any chocolate or sweets into school as a snack.

Children are also encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day. 


Many thanks for all your support.
