Welcome to Year 5


The Year 5 Team:

Miss Piponides is the class teacher supported by Mrs Littlewood ( Focused Provision). Miss Cao will take the class when Miss Piponides has non-contact time on Wednesdays.

PE & Swimming

PE will now be taking place on Thursday and Swimming on Monday afternoons: Please ensure that children have their PE and Swimming kits in school on the relevant days.

PE kits consist of black shorts, a white top (no logo please), suitable trainers or pumps and all jewellery must be removed. I will suggest that children should have a pair of plain black jogging bottoms or leggings and a fleece for our outdoor sessions.

Swimming kits consist of swimsuits and tight swimming shorts including a towel in a swimming bag.

The Year 5 homework policy is as follows:

Children are given spellings every Friday and will be tested upon these the following Friday. In order to help children learn their spellings, parental/carer involvement is essential. Children are also expected to read 5 or more times a week for approximately, 20 minutes. Please can children endure that their reading records are signed.

The school has bought into Times Tables Rockstars and every child has a username and password. Children are expected to use this online resource to help them learn and consolidate all their times tables: https://ttrockstars.com/login

Other home learning tasks are included on the ‘Homework Menu - Ancient Greek’. The more homework points the children achieve, the better the reward.

Home-School Communication:

In order for us to monitor and inform you on reading, homework tasks and school events, each child has been issued with a personal planner. It is an easy and effective way for us to communicate. Please sign the Home/School agreement.

Therefore, please check your child’s planner on a daily basis. Children must look after their planners because if they lose/damage them, a new one will be issued at a cost of £3.

School Timings:

As a reminder, the school bell goes at 8:45am in the morning, children should be lined up on the playground at this time. Morning break is at 10:20-10.35am so please can you either provide your child with a mid-morning snack or money for toast/drink.

If you have any further questions or worries, please do not hesitate to contact the Year 5 team!
