Welcome to Year 5

Summer Term 2018 - Update

We hope you enjoyed the evening production of the YR5/6 show. Thank you to all the children who attended. You were all fabulous!

On Thursday 12th July, from 3:00 - 3:30 pm, we will be selling our up-cycled plant pots at a reasonable price. All year groups will have products to sell, so make sure you come prepared!

 The children thoroughly enjoyed the secondary experience at Tadcaster Grammar last week, with both Science and Art sessions using 'Rainbow colours' as the theme.

Homework; We won't be giving out homework for the final week of the term. Thank you for all your support in working with the children to complete their home school challenges throughout the year.  It has help move the children on in their learning as well as giving you another opportunity to see what you child is learning about in school.

Make sure they keep up with their Times Table Rock Stars - they should know their Log-in. 

This is a fun way to reinforce their times tables

We have added the Year 3/4 and year 5/6 spelling lists above for you to refer to.

Fitness record - Eat, Sleep, Train, Repeat.

General Information

  • Homework will be set on a Thursday, to be returned on the following Wednesday. We will also send home spellings on the same day , to be tested on a Monday. Both of these will be available on the website using the links above.
    • Please ensure that your child’s uniform, bag, coat and pack up are clearly labelled. We still have lots of lost property every term!
    • Reading books and Reading Record Books should be taken home daily. We can then ensure that children get the satisfaction of sticking with a book and finishing it! We’re happy to give suggestions if it’s tricky to find a book which ‘grabs’ your child.
  • Named water bottles should be in school daily and either taken home every night or at the end of the week.
  • PE will be on Friday afternoon & Thursday mornings. To allow flexibility it would still be useful if P.E. and Games kits could be kept in school all week.  If your child needs to be excused from PE please send them with a note, either on paper or in their diaries, to avoid confusion.

If there are any questions please do not hesitate contact us.
