Year 5T

Welcome to 5T!


I hope you have all had a wonderful break and enjoyed some of the sunshine that we had. I am really looking forward to spending this year with you.


Hopefully, the sunny, summer weather continue up to the half term. However, please still bring your coats to school as we aim to go out for our breaks in rain or shine!



General Information 



Here at St Patrick's we aim to foster a love of reading. Please feel free to choose books from our class library or to bring in your own books from home. I love finding new stories and authors to read! In Year 5 reading for pleasure is wonderful and we encourage all children to aim to read for at least 20 minutes a day. 


Each half term, we will be spotlighting an author to focus on. For Autumn we will be looking at Michael Morpurgo. He has written over 130 books! There is something in his repertoire for everyone. 



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.



We will post spellings, English and Maths homework every Monday on Purple Mash, or the VLE 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.



PE sessions will take place every Wednesday and Friday. The children will wear their PE kits to school on these days.  Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit – branded shorts etc are not part of school uniform.  As the weather becomes cooler, the children may wear jogger bottoms, but they must still wear their school cardigan or jumper – no hoodies.



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 If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date. 



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.


Many thanks for all your support.
