Year 5

Welcome to Year 5



What a successful first half term it has been! We have been so impressed by the resilience shown by Year 5; yes, the learning and circumstances have been challenging, but everyone has been on top form and willing to give everything a go - what a fantastic bunch they are!




Although not originally planned, Year 5 have adapted well to the changes in staffing put in place at the end of Autumn Term 1; they seem to be enjoying having a variety of teachers! We are fully aware that good communication links are key; therefore, please rest assured that all of the Year 5 team are update to date with all children's specific needs and parental concerns will be passed on to all relevant  Year 5 staff.




 In case you didn't already know, the class timetable changes on a bi-weekly basis to allow children exposure to all curriculum subjects. In the links below, please find the rolling timetables for the next 6 weeks; the initials after each subject indicates who will be teaching it: JH (Miss Hosford), LR (Miss Rickett) and NG (Miss Green). .




Should your children be asked to self-isolate, you will find an up-to-date work pack ready to download from this page; the work is designed to mirror (as close as possible) the topics being studied in class that week, so please ensure you download the correct week. Your child will need access to the internet to complete this work and it should be presented in an exercise book. If you need to contact us or wish to send pictures of the work, you can do so using the email address provided on the task sheet.




As previously communicated by Mr Bailey, we are currently unable to have conversations at the classroom door; however, should you have any concerns about your child, please leave a message with the school office requesting a phone call and we will aim to get in contact ASAP. 



Miss Hosford and Miss Rickett :)
