Welcome to Year Five! We are really looking forward to getting to know your child and working with parents and carers over the next year to support your child's education. With home and school working together, we can ensure that each and every child can have a very successful year. 

Reminder of child collection: If your child is going to be picked up by anyone other than the regular carer you need to inform the class teacher or the office before the end of school. If the class teacher is unaware of any arrangements they will need to phone you to confirm this is agreed. Please make sure the class teacher knows who will be picking up your child to save any problems at the end of the day

Classroom Routines 

  • Children need their PE Kit in school for their weekly lessons - anyone unwell for a lesson must bring a note.
  • Children should bring their own water bottle each day, and take home each evening.
  • Children go to the hall for their dinner at 12.10 pm each day. 
  • Each week two children from each class will be selected to receive an award in our "Celebration Assembly". These are awarded for outstanding contributions throughout the week.
