Year 5 2019 - 2020

Miss Hilton

Welcome to Y5 class page with Miss Hilton, Mrs McClements and Mrs Riley,

 

Here are a few reminders of some of the routines in Year 5:

 

Reading

Reading Records and books are checked every Monday.  Please make sure you are reading at least 4 times a week and try to read for around 20 minutes, each time.  If you prefer to read a book you have bought, or borrowed from the public library, rather than a school book, that's fine as long as it is age appropriate.  We don't want to stop you reading a good quality book that you are enjoying!

Remember, reading at least 4 times each week earns you extra dojos.

 

PE

Our PE sessions are on Monday and Tuesday, each week. It is important to have PE kits in school on these days.

 

Water bottles

Please send a water bottle in for your child.  Even when the weather is cold, your child will still need a drink throughout the day.

 

Celebration Assembly

Celebration Assembly is now on a Friday morning. Remember to bring in any achievements from home to celebrate with us, here in school.

 

Tuck

Tuck money is collected on a Friday, ready for next week, or Monday at the latest, for the week ahead. The price for milk and toast is £1.75, each week. If children would like milk only this is £1.15 or toast is 60p, for the week.

 

Brass

Brass lessons are every Friday, children will need their brass instruments in for each of these sessions.
