Year 5S

Welcome to Year 5S!


Year 5S is taught by me, Miss Stokes, and I am supported by a wonderful team of teaching assistants!


This school year will be full of new exciting challenges and themes to support our learning! To help everyone to adjust and to settle in to their new class, please take note of the following information about our weekly routine. 


Physical Education:

Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. 

It is very important that children are equipped with their kit for all of their PE lessons and that those who wear earrings can either take them out or cover them up with protective tape.


Forest School:

From this week (Wednesday 6th September) our first block of forest school sessions will take place with Mrs Carter, in place of our Wednesday PE session. 



We love reading together and rewarding independent reading in our class! Children are expected to bring their book and reading record to school everyday. This will help them to gain organisational skills which they will need in the very near future when they transition to high school. All children have been organised into an author team group and their reading diaries will be monitored once every week (a sticker on the front of their reading diary will remind them which is their day to be checked). If staff can see that children are reading regularly and are signing their book, showing what page they are up to, then they will achieve a team point for their whole school author group. At the end of the term, the author group with the most tokens wins a prize!



Homework will be given out on Friday and will be due to be handed in the following Wednesday

Children can attend homework club on Tuesdays.


Autumn Term

Our First theme this year is 'Festivals of Colour'. Watch this space to see what we get up to!
