Welcome to Year 5
My name is Miss Ho and I am the Year 5 class teacher for this academic year. We are very lucky to have Mrs Eaton as our class teaching assistant!
We fully understand that the children have been out of school for many months and may be reluctant to return. However, we will be here to try and make the transition from year four to year five a smooth and happy one.
We are both looking forward to getting to know your child over the course of the year.

Times of Day
Children should arrive between 8.50am and 9.00am using the main entrance. Children will leave school at 3.05pm, via the front playground.
These will be handed out each Monday, with a record kept in school of the books which children have read.
We ask that books are returned on a Friday so they can be quarantined over the weekend.
We strongly recommend that children read for at least ten minutes each day. If your child will require more than one reading book for the week, they just need to let Mrs Eaton know each Monday.
Homework will be set each Monday and is due for return Friday. This will ensure any paper homework can be quarantined before marking.
Spelling rules will be practised throughout the week, with a test taking place each Friday. The following site will also be used to support spelling. Children can access this at home. https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb
PE is timetabled for Thursdays.
Children can wear their PE kit to school on this day of the week.
Questions about the Coronavirus book
The Grufallo illustrator Axel Scheffler has teamed up with experts to create a free book to explain what the Coronavirus is for children. It aims to answer questions for children between five to nine year olds and help them to understand what they are going through right now.
