Reading Suggestions for Year Five
Last week, a parent asked for a copy of the "Year Five Reading Trail" which I thought would be useful for all of you to look at, so I've shared it below. The idea is to encourage children to read by following the trail and reading all of the books included. I would avoid buying/borrowing "Stig of the Dump" as we use this book during Guided Reading lessons this half term. Happy Reading !
Year Five Leader
Due to rising cases of Covid among both staff and pupils, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the face to face Parent Forum Meetings scheduled for next week.
So that you still have the information, Year Group Leaders will record the contents of the meeting and they will be shared with you by 30/09/22.
The safety of our school community is always our first priority and we thank you for your understanding.
Anglo Saxon House-building Activity- Week Beginning 10th October.
During the week beginning 10th October, children in Year Five will have the exciting opportunity to build their own Anglo Saxon dwelling. To help with the creation of their models they will need a cardboard box into school (not too thick so it can easily be cut with school scissors). All other materials will be provided by school, however if your child wishes to bring in additional materials, we are happy for them to do so.
Could all resources be brought into school during the week beginning 3rd October.
Many thanks for your support,
The Year Five Team

WELCOME TO YEAR 5
We are all really looking forward to seeing the children on Monday 5th September. Your children’s teachers have planned wonderful activities to welcome the children into their new classes and will be spending time getting to know your child and helping them feel confident as they begin the new year.
Morning drop-off: Please drop off your child at the Avenue Road gate. The gates will be open 8:10am – 8:30am. The children will then make their way down the path to the Jubilee playground where they will proceed to their new classrooms.
If you also have a child in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, please drop and collect your children off via the Dorset Road gate and follow the guidance on your younger child’s pick-up times and locations. Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.
Please remember that children must be in the correct school uniform which should be clearly labelled with their name and class. (see our school website for full details of the uniform policy). Although resources will be provided in school, if your child wishes to bring their own pencil cases then they can but please ensure that this, and the contents, is fully labelled.
Please ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school from the start of term and again, each item is clearly labelled with their name and class. The children will require their P.E. kit during the first week of school and this should include trainers for outdoor use. Smart watches are not permitted in school, due to safeguarding reasons.
The children will also require a labelled swimming kit as they will start swimming on the 5th September.
