Year 5 Summer Term News


Dear Parents/ Guardians,


We hope that you had a relaxing break!


This term our main topic is Rivers and we are going to visit Hudnall Park, Berkhamsted in May.



  1. Every child should have a water bottle in school.
  2. Swimming for Year 5 is every Monday.  As in previous years, children with long hair should wear a swimming cap. The instructors have reminded us that they prefer the children to not wear goggles as the lessons are focused on life-long safety skills.
  3. PE kit should be in school all week (main PE will now be gymnastics on Thursday).
  4. Home learning will continue to be sent out weekly.
    • English and Maths out Friday, due in Wednesday.
    • Please encourage your child to be organised and hand home learning and Reading Records in promptly.
    • Information about homework can usually be found on the class blogs.
  5. Please ensure your child has the following basic equipment:
  • Blue fibre tip pen (30p)
    • Pencil (15p)
    • Green pen for self marking (30p)
    • Glue stick (50p)
    • Whiteboard marker (30p).
    • 30cm ruler (30p)
      Lessons are delayed when children do not have this basic equipment.
  1. It is expected that children will practise their times tables at home regularly.
  2. Please remember children should be reading at least 5 times a week. The Reading Record should be kept up to date and signed at least once a week by an adult. Reading Records should be in school every day and will be checked every Wednesday.
