I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to an exciting year in 5S. This is an important year in preparation for Year 6. We will have lots of fun and work together to achieve our goals.
General information for parents and carers.
Please let the school office know if your contact details have changed. It is important that we have the correct information on file. Please also remember to inform the office immediately if your child is going to be absent.
This term, our P.E. lessons will be on Mondays and Thursdays. Please send your child to school in their full P.E. kit. The children must also have their school jumper or cardigan, no hoodies please. Swimming lessons will begin on Thursday 14th September. Children will need appropriate swimwear and a swimming cap.
Snacks and water
Key Stage 2 children are welcome to bring a snack to be eaten during morning and afternoon break times. Please ensure that these snacks are healthy! Water bottles should be brought into school to drink from throughout the day. No juice or cordials.
If your child has a medical condition that we need to know about, please inform us as soon as possible. If an inhaler or any other medication is required, please ensure the correct form has been completed and the medication is in date.
Homework will be set every Monday on Purple Mash. Please encourage your child to complete the weekly tasks, as well as to read for approximately 20 minutes each night. The children will be tested on their spellings and times tables regularly.
Spelling and Times Tables Links
It is important that the children can quickly recall all the times tables and previous spellings they have been taught. This will really help their learning in Year 5. The websites below can help the children do this at their own pace and in a fun way.

Please do not hesitate to speak to me after school if you have any questions or concerns. I will update our class page regularly.
Thank you for your support, it is hugely appreciated.
