Year 5 2019 - 2020

Mrs Hatch

Welcome to Year 5

PE and swimming

Swimming is every Wednesday. Your child needs a costume, towel and swimming hat.

PE is every Thursday. For this, they will need a t-shirt, a pair of shorts and a pair of pumps. They should be clearly labelled and left in school in a named bag on their coat peg. 


This term we will be learning about properties of materials. Please encourage your child to complete the activities on Purple Mash as well as thinking about the different materials in the world around them. They could make a list of all the different types of material in their bedroom e.g. a wooden bed frame, fabric for curtains, glass for the windows etc. They could also choose a material and explain why it is used e.g.wood for a bed frame as it is RIGID, HARD and can be made SMOOTH. Good luck!

Homework and reading

Homework is set on a Friday and should be returned to school for Thursday. Homework club runs on a Wednesday after school. Please ask for a place from Miss O'Sullivan via the school office. If homework is not returned on time, they will stay in on Thursday lunchtime to complete it. 

Children should be encouraged to read regularly and their reading record should be brought into class to be monitored every day.  They must read at least 3 times a week. Any child who does not, will catch up during lunchtimes the following week. 

Please remember that jewellery and nail polish are not allowed to be worn. Stud earrings may be worn, but must be removed for swimming and PE.

Many thanks for your support,

Mrs Hatch
