Year Five 2021 - 2022




Dear Year 5 pupils, parents and carers,                                                                      

Welcome to Year 5 and welcome back to school.  I am very excited about the New Year ahead and I’m looking forward to us having a happy, productive and fun school year.  After a long time of restrictions and school being different we are hoping to have a school year that is much more what we are used to.  I would like to welcome Mrs Crossley to our class who will be supporting the children in our lessons this year.  She is a brilliant asset to the school and is very excited to be working with the children.

In the year ahead, we have lots of exciting English, Maths, Science and new topics that we will be covering this year.  Some of the topics we will cover are; Oceans, Rivers and Mountains, Comparing different artists and The Victorians.  The children have already shown an incredible interest in topic and I would encourage parents to send in any books or resources from home that you may have related to our topics. 

As a Catholic school Religious Education is very much at the centre of our curriculum and the children will be learning about lots of different aspects of Religion and other faiths – through the Come and See programme.

All pupils will have been provided with a reading pack and reading diary.  Please do try to read with your children at home and fill it in their reading record when you do so.  Letters of communication are sent home in the reading packs so please make sure they are brought in to school every day. This will help you stay organised, carry any homework and anything else you may need for a school day.

Homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned on a Wednesday.  It would be fantastic if parents would support us at school by encouraging children to do their homework and bring it back into school.  This is an excellent way for you to engage with your child and speak to them about what they are doing at school.

It is important that you come to school on our PE days dressed in your full PE kit. This should be a plain white t-shirt, black or navy shorts/joggers and your Holy Name school jumper.  Please do not send children in any other types of clothing or football kits.  PE in the Autumn Term will take place on Monday and Friday and we are delighted to be welcoming CITC and their coaches into school to support with this.

Parents, please read all letters sent home with the children so that you are aware of any events and exciting things going on in school throughout the school year.  Don’t forget to mark those dates on your calendar.  Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement.  We hope you will make it a priority this year to attend as many school-sponsored events as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t ever hesitate to contact me.

Miss Lynch and Mrs Crossley
