Welcome to Year Five

Mrs Humbles and Mrs Hinchliffe

Here is where you will find out what’s going on in class and routines.


Reading Books need to be returned to school and changed on Fridays. Please sign the reading diary to say that you have listened to your child read. Children need to have their reading books in their bags daily so that we can listen to individual readers.

PE Days: PE will take place on Tuesday and Thursday (swimming). Football will be outdoors, weather permitting.

Pupils must come to school wearing school PE kit on these days.

Please remember that PE kit is as follows:

  • Black/Navy Blue shorts
  • White t-shirt
  • Plain Black or Navy Blue tracksuit
  • Black/Navy Blue jogging bottoms/leggings
  • Plain Navy Blue/black sweatshirt/jacket
  • PE Kits should have no logos on.
  • Earrings must be removed
  • One piece swimming costume for girls and no baggy swimming shorts for boys (black or navy blue).
  • PE Kits must be named

Homework:  Children will be set half termly research tasks in line with current topics.

In Year 5 children are expected to:
