Welcome to Class 5S!



I am so excited to see you all and get started on our new school year!

Some of you may be a little nervous, some of you may be very excited and some of you may not quite know how you feel…but we’re all in this together and we’re going to have a fab time!


This year, Mrs Scutt and Miss Allen will be helping us out in Year 5 each day and Mr Jessop will be teaching you on Tuesday mornings.


New timings

Our school day will begin between 8:45am and 9am - you will come into school through the big playground and then the door nearest to the KS2 boys toilets. Don’t worry, Mrs Menary or myself will be on the big playground to welcome you!


Our day will end as usual at 3:20pm and your parents know that they’re to collect you from the big playground.


What you should bring:

You should only bring to school your coat, a packed lunch (if you don’t have school dinners), a named water bottle and a healthy snack of fresh fruit or vegetables. The water bottle must be taken home at the end of the day and washed thoroughly. This year, you will NOT be allowed to bring in any pencil case or bag from home. Everything you need for the school day will be in our classroom so don’t worry!


We will have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays so on these two days you should come to school in your outdoor PE kit (black/blue joggers, white t-shirt, school jumper and trainers) so that you do not need to get changed for the lesson.





During the first couple of weeks, you will not be taking a reading book home or be able to bring one in from home. We will give you a book to keep in your tray at school. Don’t worry, we’ve got a great class novel to start reading! We would love it though if you could try and keep reading at home either to an adult or to yourself!



Spelling homework will be set on Purple Mash, just like in lockdown! You will spend the week in school working on a set of spellings and then, on Friday, you will be set the spelling 'quiz' activity on Purple Mash where you drop the correct letters in the correct order for each spelling word we have learnt. You will have a whole week to do this before Mrs Menary and I collect in the scores.  



More information will follow about Maths homework which we hope will be able to start as soon as possible :) 



During the Autumn term there will be no extra curricular clubs due to mixing of bubbles.




 Autumn Term 


This term, we will be learning all about the Maya in our history lessons as well as mapping skills in Geography! Mr Murphy will be back to help us with some really fun and challenging PE lessons too!! It's going to be a great term!
