Key messages

Year 5 at primary school is an exciting and interesting year that sees the children grow in confidence and independence. We aim for them to enjoy all subjects equally and to achieve and fulfill their potential. Parental support is essential in motivating and engaging children with their learning. With this is mind, we ask you to support us in the following:

  • Ensuring that children read at least four times weekly
  • Ensuring that children practice their spellings for their weekly test on Friday
  • Ensuring that children come to school with the items they need for that day such as: PE kit, spelling books, reading bookmarks and any letters that need to be returned
  • Regularly checking your emails as we no longer send paper letters home
