Welcome to the Year Five page! We are really enjoying getting to know your child and working with you to support your child's education. With home and school working together, we can ensure that each and every child has 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.  If you wish to allow your child to walk to and from school on their own, please let the office know so that it can go on the school records.

Classroom Routines 

  • Year 5's PE day is Thursday. Children are encouraged to come into school wearing their kit. 
  • Indigo will swim on Mondays in the Autumn term. Mulberry will swim in the Spring term.
  • Children should bring their own water bottle each day, and take home each evening.
  • Children go to the hall for their dinner at 12.40 pm each day. 
  • Each week two children from each class will be celebrated by receiving a Super Star Award. These are for outstanding contributions throughout the week.
  • Fantastic writing will be rewarded with a Star Writer Certificate.
  • Children receive dojos for exemplary behaviour and attitudes. These collate to both individual and class rewards.

Gledhow pupils' contribution to exciting new Children's Adventure Trails for all in Roundhay Park!

Last term, our Year 5 children attended a fun and exciting clues workshop, delivered by Yorkshire Trails and the Friends of Roundhay Park, where they were able to explore and design a range of clues to be used as part of a set of newly developed Children's Adventure Trails throughout the park.   More recently, some of our children were invited to take part in the Opening Ceremony at Tropical World, and the trails are now open to the general public.

It has been a real privilege to be part of this new Roundhay Park Trail design.  Our children really enjoyed the challenge in the knowledge that some of  our clues will be used by visitors to the park.

Our children said:

Neath: " I am looking forward to trying out the new trail."

Hayat: "I enjoyed working out the clues at our workshop in school.  I sometimes make up games with clues at home which me and my brother then solve."

Jamie: "Clues challenge your brain and they're really good fun.  We enjoyed making up our own clues at the school workshop."

Vrindha: "I enjoyed making up the clues for the workshop and I hope the children who use the trail enjoy the challenge."

Nevaeh: "Clues are fun to make up.  I really like figuring out the answers and I think the trail will be really good fun."

Adam: "I enjoyed the clues workshop and I will definitely be using the trail with my sister."

During their visit, the children had a go at the trail located in the grounds of Tropical World and we can't wait to go up there as a year group in the Summer to test them all out! We hope you get the chance to visit them too! Let's hope they're there for years to come!

We were even in the Yorkshire Evening Post!!
