Francesca Wiltshire and Megan Bailey would like to welcome you to Year 5! We are looking forward to working with you to make sure your children can achieve their best, through fun, practical learning. If you would like to see us at any time to discuss any issues about your child, please do not hesitate to come and ask.
Both PE and swimming will be on Thursdays this term. PE is every Wednesday and Thursday starting on 13th September. Swimming is every other Thursday (see box to the right for more detail). Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit for the time of year!
For swimming, children need their swimming costume, towel and goggles. They should not wear their costume to school under their uniform.
It is really vital that you help us and your child with homework. Please make sure your child reads for at least 20 minutes each night and brings their book bag to school each day. On Fridays, homework will be sent home to be returned the following Wednesday. Homework might involve tasks / projects that need to be completed with a family member. Please offer your full support to your child in this regard.
The children are able to come and discuss their homework with us, in class, if they need extra help.
Please note that this year the swimming lessons will happen every other week, and will be for an hour rather than half an hour. The swimming days for 5W are as follows:
14st September, 28th September,
12th October, 26th October,
9th November, 23th November and 7th December.
