Year 5 Welcome

Welcome to Year 5

New opportunities in Year 5 are now advertised - would you like to be a recycling monitor or a play leader across the school? If so then look on the letters home area of Year 5 and write your letter of application before the deadline.

Over the next few weeks you will be getting used to an Upper School timetable with lunch half an hour later. We will be introducing you to the Hall Green Walk and also sharing our expectations of you.

The module 'One Well' is based around our planet's water supply, how we use it and how we need to protect our supplies from pollution. We will be visiting Slimbridge Wildfowl Centre to explore where our water comes from and how animals have adapted to a water environment - it should be a great visit.

How are groupings arranged in Year

Each academic year groupings within school are reviewed and changes to these groupings may take place. Restructuring of the groups is based upon the progress children have made in the previous academic year. Teachers use assessments, class work and teacher observations to determine the best group for each child in each subject area. Whilst all children in Year 5 will be following the National Curriculum, the groupings will ensure that teaching is tailored to the group's current needs.

Home - School diaries should be in school everyday, new information about reading books, trips, letters and upcoming events will be added throughout the week!

So we can get our learning off to a quick start please make sure your PE kits is in school everyday - take a look at our prospectus to double check what you need! Each item should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
