Welcome back to Year 5!

We are so thrilled to have a whole new crew of fantastic Year 5s, who have already astounded us with their politeness and positivity. We can already tell this will be a fantastic year!

Each class has had the opportunity to create a piece of art to represent their new start in Year 5, ready to display in the classroom: in 5LS, children have fashioned their own micrography pieces expressing who they are; in 5MW, each child has designed their own painted pop-up-garden; and in 5GT, Julian Opie art will populate the art wall with brightly-coloured self-portraits.

Each class have also delivered sessions focused on British Values, how to stay safe online, our PANTS rules, why we learn R.E. in school, as well as devising class charters. We are looking forward to starting more subjects next week including Science, French, Reading and PE. Please can we ask that all children have PE kits in school as soon as possible so we can begin our orienteering and gymnastics work from Monday. Also due in on Mondays are reading diaries. All other home learning will be due in on Thursdays. This week, we have asked that the children simply read for pleasure and enjoy getting stuck into a new book!

Have a wonderful weekend!

The Y5 team
