Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5! This year we have 29 wonderful, hard-working, smart and responsible Year Five children taught by Mrs Dixon and assisted by Mrs Whitaker and Miss Gallagher. Our Key Value words are 'moral' and 'motivated', and we try to work on these values every day.

If you have any questions, please speak to me on the playground, call the school or contact me via email.

Dinners: School dinners are back to a choices menu. You may select packed lunches. Do inform us of any changes. Water bottles from class will be available out in the hall, however all children can access water in the dinner hall.


Water: Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water every day, labelled with their name, to keep them hydrated throughout the day and to drink with their lunch.


Snack: The children can bring in a healthy morning and afternoon snack, which must be kept in their coat pocket, separate to their lunch boxes or bags.


P.E kits: We will be doing PE outside as much as possible so please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit for this. Their kit can remain in school for the half term. Please take out or tape up earrings on PE days. Children may bring in plain black tracksuit bottoms or leggings for outdoor PE sessions.


Forest School: We still want the children to come to school in their Forest School clothes on Forest School days. Do not forget - they will still need to bring their change of footwear and waterproofs in a bag. Please ensure that the clothes sent to wear are not for ‘best’ and that they will be appropriate for the weather conditions. Please bring a bag with an additional coat and wellies on the Forest School dates. 


Year 5 Residential

The Year 5 residential will be from Wednesday 22nd June – Thursday 23rd June 2022.
