Copmanthorpe Primary School

Copmanthorpe Primary School

Welcome to Year 5 

This page will give you some brief information about Year 5. As the new term begins, we will continue to embed our behaviour policy; Ready, Respectful and Safe (RRS) with the additional Covid rules.

We will also be reinforcing good learning attitudes with the help of the Copmanthorpe Learning Buddies: Resilient Snail, Resourceful Squirrel, Reciprocal Bee and Reflective Owl. 

Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 5 team via the school office email or telephone. Alternatively, please leave a message on the table near the classroom door in the morning. We are keen to keep an open and supportive dialogue between home and school despite the current restrictions.

Please make sure you have downloaded our school app to receive important updates. And do join us walking, running, biking around the world: AROUND THE WORLD MILES.

General Information:

  • Please ensure that your child’s uniform, coat, pack up and water bottle are clearly labelled. We will not be able to hold onto lost property anymore and children will not be able to wander the school to look for lost items so if it is not named we won't be able to return it to the correct child. They do any require any other items to be brought into school unless otherwise agreed.
  • Children will be given a banded reading book to take home and read at home. When finished, they can return to school for quarantining and select another book to take home. Children will have a different school reading book to read at school.  If children want to bring a book in from home to read in school, this will need to be cleaned or quarantined in school before they can use it in class.
  • Home School Planners will not be used for the time being. 
  • Named water bottles should be in school daily and must be taken home every day for washing.
  • PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon and tennis on a Thursday afternoonso children are to come into school in their full PE kit on this day only. Please make sure that they have on suitable PE kit for the weather as we will usually be outside. Please also ensure that long hair is tied up and earrings are either removed or covered up on P.E. days as we will not be able to help children with this as we usually would have. We will be adding in another PE session shortly and will let you know in good time.  If your child needs to be excused from PE, please send them with a note to avoid confusion. 
  • In regard to home learning, we are trying to limit the amount of items passing between school and home so are setting up new systems for homework. We will be in touch about these routines soon but it is likely to be daily reading, a weekly spelling and times table homework and then a termly topic menu to select from.
  • Please note we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL, so children cannot bring any nut products to school in their packed lunches. We appreciate your co-operation with this.  
  • Snacks must be healthy and they can not share any of their food or snacks with any other children.
