Hello and welcome to Year Five!
Our whole Year Five team is here to support your child’s learning and development and we would like to take this opportunity to welcome your child and yourselves to Year Five.
The Year Five team are:
There will be lots of exciting learning taking place this year, in all areas of the curriculum. Some of the things your child will be learning in English will be to write twisted fairy tales and discussion texts.
In maths they will be learning place value and number, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions and decimals.
They will also be learning about the environment in Geography and The Anglo Saxons in History.
Reading is very important. Your child will have regular reading sessions in class, but they would also benefit greatly from further reading at home too. Each child will need to have a book to read in class which they can also take home to read. Please make sure that book bags are brought into school each day. Your child be given a reading diary or journal. Please make sure that you read with your child every day and sign their reading diary.
This term there are spellings which will be sent home for the children to learn.
Please make sure that your child brings in a full PE kit for every session. Year Five will have PE on Thursday.
For PE, each child should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms and their ‘House Colours’ T-shirt. They will also need trainers for PE.
Year Five will be swimming each Thursday morning. Please ensure that your child has a costume/swimming shorts, swimming cap, goggles and a towel.
Children should wear school uniform every day.
The school colours are navy blue, to be worn with grey, black or white.

Children are encouraged to wear a jumper or cardigan with the school logo on it but can also wear plain navy blue jumpers, cardigans or fleeces. School jumpers, cardigans and fleeces with the school logo can be purchased from Khalsa Schoolwear on Bethnal Green Road.
In the summer term, blue and white striped or checked dresses, or blue shorts are also suitable.
Parent Coffee morning
We will be holding a coffee morning for parents at 9.10am on Tuesday 10th September. The meeting will be held in the annexe.
At the meeting we will introduce ourselves as a class team, provide you with timetables for the term, curriculum information for the year, and Knowledge Organisers which will give you more information about your child’s topic for this term.
There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have
Please remember …
- to tell the office or your child’s teacher if someone other than yourself will be collecting your child at the end of the day.
- to write your child’s name in their coat, uniform and PE kit
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Year Three team at the start or end of the school day.
Thank you for all your support
