Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

I hope that you all had a fantastic Christmas break and are well-rested ready for the challenges the Spring Term will bring - the first one being remembering to call me Mrs Harper!


This is how the timetable will look:


Monday: Mrs Harper all day

Tuesday: Mrs Harper all day

Wednesday: Mrs Harper all day

Thursday: Mrs Harper (morning) Sports Coach (afternoon)

Friday:  Mrs Harper all day


Mrs Jolley (Tu, W, Th, F) and Miss Claridge (M, Tu, W, Th, F am)

will be supporting in class and running intervention programmes.







As part of your weekly homework tasks, remember to complete daily practice of the multiplication tables set for you on your Times Tables Rock Stars account.


Each week, I will set you a different times table to concentrate on and REMEMBER you will be asked the division facts too as division is the inverse operation of multiplication!


If you do not have access to this at home, please let me know.




This term, we are extremely lucky to have the opportunity (again) to go out to 'Forest School' with Mrs McKenzie. 



On the days your child is attending Forest School, please could they come to school wearing:

o School shoes (but with wellies in a bag ready to change into)

o Long trousers

o Long sleeved T-shirt

o Jumper (the site is quite shady so can be chilly even if the day is sunny)

These are essential to protect the children from stings and scratches as the site is ‘wild’ and does have nettles and brambles. Please make sure the clothes that they bring in are not items you mind getting dirty or wet!


Forest School happens whatever the weather (unless it poses a danger to health) so, dependent on the conditions, please could you also send them in wearing:

o Waterproofs

o Additional layers for both their upper and lower bodies

o Hat, scarf and gloves

o Suncream

o Sunhat


Any child not appropriately dressed will need to remain in school.

Please could you ensure your child’s wellies are in a clearly named carrier bag when they are brought into school for their sessions. This prevents our minibus getting muddy and labelled bags makes the process of changing footwear on our return from site much quicker.



MONDAY 9th March am - BLUE TITS

TUESDAY 10th March am - ROBINS
