Year Five 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Year Five

Dear Year 5 pupils, parents and carers,                                                   

Welcome to Year 5.  I am very excited about the New Year and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.  I feel very proud to be part of this school and relish working with such an amazing class.

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; Comparing People and Places, Comparing different artisits and The Egyptians.  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 essential that you have a full PE kit in school at all times (please see uniform policy).  This is to ensure you access the full curriculum and take part in other exciting sporting opportunities.  PE kit must be brought into school on the first day of term and can be taken home to be washed over the holidays.  PE in the SpringTerm will take place on Wednesday and Friday and we are delighted to be welcoming  Manchester City 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 Miss Hamilton
