Year 5 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Y5 class page with Miss Hilton, Mrs McClements and Miss Young.
We are really looking forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 8th March.
Here are just a few things to remember...
Start and Finish Times
On our Covid-19 section, you will have seen that we will be staggering start and finish times for each class. Our Y5 drop-off time is 8:50 and our pick-up time is 3:15.
Remember, if you have a child in more than one year group, please bring them at the earliest time and pick up at the latest.
Due to Covid-19, we won't be using Reading Records this year. Instead we will set up a system on Seesaw, so that parents/carers can make a note of any reading happening at home. A member of staff will check Seesaw 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 at home, 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.
From Friday 7th May, Y5 will be attending swimming sessions (each Friday morning). These sessions are an important part of the children's P.E. curriculum, which they unfortunately missed out on last year (due to the pandemic). It is important that each Friday children come into school wearing: jogging pants/leggings, trainers, their P.E. top and their school jumper, with a swimming costume underneath (BOYS MUST WEAR SWIMMING TRUNKS, RATHER THAN BOARD SHORTS AND GIRLS MUST WEAR A FULL SWIMMING COTUME). They must also remember to bring a towel to school with them, for after the lesson. Children may want to bring a snack (their break time snack e.g. fruit or a cereal bar, rather than crisps/chocolate), to give them some extra energy after the session.
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. Make sure that your water bottles labelled, this is particularly important due to the current pandemic.
For the time being, assemblies will be in 'bubbles', so that we can keep everybody as safe as possible. As soon as we are able to celebrate together again, we will let you know.
Tuck money MUST now be collected on a Friday, ready for next week. At the moment (due to the pandemic), we are only offering toast, which is £1.00 for the week.
Providing that covid cases stay low enough then music lessons should be able to take place on a Wednesday afternoon. We will keep children's instruments in school until further notice.
