Year 5 2020 - 2021

Miss Hilton

Welcome to Y5 class page with Miss Hilton and Mrs McClements.

 

Due to the pandemic, we won't be having any 'Meet the Teacher' slots for parents/carers this year. If you would like to speak to us, please ring the office. Here is some information, which should be helpful for coming back to school this September...

 

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.

 

Reading

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.

 

PE Afternoons

Our PE afternoon is on a Friday, each week. It is important that each Friday, children come into school wearing jogging pants/leggings, their P.E. top and their school jumper. This is to lessen the need to bring things to and from school. P.E. pumps will stay in school and then be put on in the afternoon, ready for P.E. 

Remember that pumps must be worn for P.E. in the hall - so that we don't mark the floor - it is important to make sure that you have these in school (and to make sure that they are clearly labelled).

 

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. Make sure that your water bottles labelled, this is particularly  important due to the current pandemic.

 

Celebration Assembly

Celebration Assembly is now on a Friday morning. 

 

Tuck

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.

 

Music

Music lessons are every Wednesday, children will need their instruments in school for each of these sessions. 

We are changing our instruments this year, more information will come out about this as and when we have it.
