Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 - Autumn Term

Miss Harding with Mrs Hunter, Mrs Jans, Mrs Jeremiah, Miss Lazar and Mrs O'Neill

Welcome to Year 5! You're now in the upper juniors. With this, comes greater expectation and greater responsibility but many privileges too. You will be going on a residential in the summer term - it has already been booked! 

Our whole school theme is Time Machine. We will be continuing with our learning about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. Our value is truthfulness under the umbrella of forgiveness. We will be reading The Nowhere Emporium by Ross MacKenzie this half term. If you wish to bring your own copy into school, you may. For further information on the curriculum we will be covering, please take a look at the summer parent curriculum leaflet below. 


P.E. lessons will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Children are to come to school in P.E. kits on these days. If they are attending a club after school which they wear a school P.E. kit for, they may also wear it on this day. 


Just a reminder - as it is the autumn term, please return to school in winter uniform. 


Thank you,


Miss S. Harding smiley

Information for Parents 



Please try to hear your child read every day, just for 10 minutes. It really does make a difference! When your child has finished a book, please write in their reading record. Your child will then put their book and reading record in the box in the classroom and I will sign it before they get a new book. 


I would again like to challenge the children to read as many books from the suggested reading list as possible. It really does make a difference! They will be celebrated in the classroom, on the webpage and in the newsletter so please let me know once they've completed a book and email a photograph of them with the book. I look forward to having another cluttered star board! They can read the books themselves or have them read to them. We will be setting up a class library as before and I have already got a few of the books from the list. 




General Reminders 


  • Hair that is long enough to be tied back please do so fully using a green or hair-coloured band. 
  • No nail varnish please.
  • Plain gold / silver stud earrings only.
  • Your child may wear a watch or Fitbit but these must be removed for P.E.
  • No other jewellery such as friendship bands etc is permitted.
  • If your child wears a religious adornment, please let me know.


Absolutely NO NUTS in school please.
