Week beginning 04.09.23

Dear parents and carers,

This week has flown past as we have settled the children into the routines and expectations of Year 5. The children have responded well, working hard, and we are very pleased with their efforts. Forest School commenced this week for one half of the class, whilst the other half started their first Art unit.


  1. Forest School children require their change of clothes and footwear each Tuesday please.
  2. Reading: Every Monday the class has a Library session and Book Change. We are currently assessing all children and they will be issued with a reading book by the end of Friday 15th September. Year 5’s first Library session was on Monday 4th September.
  3. Spelling Shed: we have been working on our spellings for this week. Homework linked to this has been set. If your child does ‘Stareway Spellings’, these will be put on Spelling Shed commencing Friday 15th September.
  4. Maths Shed: Homework linked to this week’s maths learning has been set. To be completed by next Friday.
  5. PE Kit: this must be in school on Wednesdays and Thursdays please. We endeavour to do Daily Mile sessions on other days (when it is not quite so hot) and it is good practice for children to change into trainers for this.

Enjoy your weekend.

The Year 5 Team
