Year 5

Welcome to Year five




Mrs. Rushton and Mrs. Kobus

We hope everyone is staying safe and well at home! Look on ClassDojo  everyday for messages explaining the day’s lessons.  Videos for each lesson will be posted on ClassDojo or tasks will be explained and set in purple mash. If you have any questions or queries please message me on ClassDojo.


 Look at the diary section below to see what we have been up to!


If you are in school, please remember to bring a water bottle each day. We will supply all stationery needed.


Finally, please read the newsletter each week to stay up to date with any developments in the current situation.

Weekly routines - updated for Spring term


Year 5 have PE on Wednesday afternoons.  The school PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt, plain black shorts or joggers and trainers.  A plain black tracksuit top can be worn in cooler weather when we are outside.  This year we would like pupils to come to school in their PE kit on Wednesdays instead of getting changed, but please still ensure that all items are named.


Reading books are to be taken home and read every night (except Wednesdays) and returned to school the following morning so that they can be read in school aswell.  (Please make a note in the reading record book to show when reading has taken place.)


Reading comprehension books are sent home on Wednesday evenings.  One reading comprehension exercise is to be completed and the book returned the following morning so that the work can be reviewed in class. 


Additional homework tasks will be set on Purple Mash and children should be encouraged to play on TT Rockstars and Numbots weekly.  Please let me know if you have any problems accessing any of these platforms.
