"In God we Love, Laugh and Learn"

Year 5

Class Teacher: Mr N Barton

Support Staff: Mrs P Smith, Mrs M Matthew  


Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school at all times. It is expected that all items are named and kept in a clearly named bag.

The children will need their swimming kits every Monday.


Our class visits the library on a Friday so please make sure books are brought back to be changed.


The children will be given spellings to learn every Monday and will be tested on them on Friday. Please support your child in learning their spellings through the week.

Reading books will be changed and sent home every Friday. Please spend time with your child discussing what they have read to make sure they have understood the text. Your child is expected to answer a question in their journal each week. This will be monitored by staff.

A homework grid relating to the topic being covered will be sent  home at the beginning of each half term. The children are expected to research and produce answers to at least 2 of the questions. They can answer the questions with as much creativity as they wish. They will be expected to share their work with the rest of the class.
