Year 5

Spring Newsletter for Year 5.


Happy New Year! I hope you all had a very enjoyable Christmas.

Spring promises to be a busy term for us, with the trip to Ufton Court at the end of January, a class assembly and a trip to Theale Green School to see Sister Act, in February.

Here is just a reminder of class routines, homework and PE days.


Class routines

When the children come into class at 8:50, they start the day with a ‘Good Morning Challenge’ that is linked to our learning, so it is really important that they arrive promptly please.  We stop for break at 10:45 and Lunch is from 12:10 to 13:10. Sometimes we may have an extra break in the afternoons.


PE Day

Outdoor Games will be on Tuesday afternoon and indoor PE will be on Wednesday morning. Please make sure your child’s PE kit and trainers are in school EVERYDAY.


Water Bottles and lunch

Please make sure your child has a named water bottle in school. These will be kept in the classroom and can be re-filled when needed.

School lunches can be ordered on the day in school, but it is very helpful if you could pre-order these online beforehand please. (Note – you can’t order online at home on the day, this will have to be done in school)

Your child is welcome to bring a healthy snack in for break time: no chocolate or crisps please.



We will provide all stationery for our lessons in school so your child doesn’t need to bring a pencil case into school, but they will need to have access to stationery at home for their homework.



Homework will be sent out on a Friday and will be due in by the following Wednesday, please. This will consist of a mixture of My Maths,, Times Table Rockstars on-line activities and daily reading. I shall check how your child gets on, regularly, as I have access to all their on-line work. If you have difficulties accessing the web-sites, please let me know.


If your child needs to take any form of medication, on a short or long term basis, please make sure that you fill in the medical form at the office and hand the medicine in.
