The Year 5 team consists of:
Miss Allcock Mrs Fernandes
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”
We would like to welcome both you and your child to Year 5.
We are looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child achieves their very best academically, spiritually whilst also developing their wider gifts and God given talents.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please feel free to see me at the end of the day. If I am not available, or if that is not convenient for you, then we can arrange an appointment for another time.

Our PE day is Wednesday. Please make sure that your child comes to school wearing the full correct PE kit and has the correct swimming kit packed in a bag (Swimming costume, swimming shorts, a towel, goggles...).
What to wear for P.E.?
- Black shorts/dark tracksuit bottoms
- Yellow T-shirt with school badge
- Black pumps for P.E. or trainers
Children are required to read every night with an adult. In Year 5, we are trying to develop our comprehension skills so therefore, I would ask you to discuss the book with your child and ask them questions; e.g. what happened when?, how did this character feel at that time?
Your child will be heard reading during school once a week and this is their opportunity to have their book changed if everything is complete.
If children have followed all the school rules, are wearing correct school uniform for the day (including P.E. days), arrive on time for school and their planner has been signed for the previous day, they will receive a golden stamp. Golden stamps will be added up at the end of the terms and prizes may be awarded.
Golden stamps will not be issued if school rules have not been adhered to and if the planners have been signed in advance, as we do not know if the child has read or if the planner was checked the previous night.
Children will receive at least two pieces of homework (maths & English) every Friday, this will then be due in on a Tuesday.
Children will also have a Spelling and Mental Maths test every Friday.
