Welcome to Year 5!

Reminders for the Autumn Term

Stationery – Although stationery can be provided, children are encouraged to bring their own stationery with them to school (this could include a blue writing pen, pencil, highlighter, glue stick, ruler, rubber and sharpener, all contained within a practical pencilcase). They should also bring a water bottle to school and may wish to bring a healthy snack for break time. All belongings should be labelled.


P.E. - Indoor P.E. will be on a Monday and outdoor games will be on a Friday. In line with our Covid-19 Risk Assessment, children should come to school in their PE kit on those days. Please ensure your child has the correct P.E. kit in school at all times, particularly in the winter months when our slots will be flexible to take into account the changeable weather, and that it is labelled. P.E. kits should include jogging bottoms, shorts, a house-coloured t-shirt, jumper and trainers. Children will need to ensure their hair is tied up and any earrings taken out/or covered if newly pierced. Please provide suitable tape.


Spellings - Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags.
