Welcome to Year 5
It's wonderful to be back with you all again.
We hope you find our web-page helpful in finding out what you need to know about Year 5.

Our new email addresses are:
Year 5’s school day will start at 8:45am, and finish at 2:45pm. Please ensure the children are prompt. They will be sanitized as they enter and leave, as well as at regular times throughout the day. As the children are now in Year 5, please let us or the office know if you give your child permission to walk home by themselves.
The children will not need to bring a book bag, pencil case or PE Kit. For PE, the children will wear their outdoor shoes, and remove ties and jumpers. Children will need to bring a coat into school every day, plus their own water bottle and lunch if you have not ordered a cold school lunch from Chartwells.
Children should wear full school uniform, that needs to be changed and washed as much as possible. Black outdoor school shoes or trainers should be worn to and from school, and these should be suitable for field play and wet weather. Children should bring in a clean indoor pair of shoes/slippers/plimsolls in a plastic bag, that will stay in school. Children will be changing their shoes for indoor/outdoor, be it wet or dry, to get into good habits.
Reading books & spellings
Children will continue to use our online learning tools at home, such as Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Oxford Reading Buddy. Children will be given a reading book from their reading list on a Monday for reading at home. This needs to only be returned on a Friday and not brought into school throughout the week, where the children will put it into a special box for sanitization. We are not sending home reading records. Also, spelling lists will come home on paper, to be kept at home. The list will also be on Spelling Shed and on the website. We are trying to minimise the amount of items that go between home and school. For the time being, no additional homework will be set.
Request for picnic blankets
As we intend to use the outdoor spaces as much as possible for outdoor learning, if you have any picnic blankets at home you no longer use, we would love to have them in school to make our outdoor learning more comfortable. Many thanks.
We found your email communication during lockdown an invaluable way of keeping in touch about your children. Unfortunately, it is not safe at the moment for any adults to come into school, and any meetings need to be pre-arranged to keep us all safe. In this case, we continue to welcome your emails regarding anything you need us to know, or questions you have. This isn’t an exhaustive list of instructions and information, and as we return and things settle into the new routine, we will keep you updated.
