Each year, we teachers start out so hopeful and excited to begin the new journey with your child. We come in with hopes and dreams of what the year will be like - and all of those visions include good things for your child. Whilst we are willing to put in the effort, the hours, the creativity, the enthusiasm - having your support results in your child's overall success!

A very big welcome to Year 5's class page!

Our class page is a fantastic way to share our learning experiences with you and celebrate our achievements along the way.

General Reminders

PE – PE will take place every Monday afternoon. Please make sure your child arrives to school in their full PE kit.

Reading Books - Please make sure children have their reading books and reading journals in school every day. 

Homework – Homework will be sent each Friday. This is to be returned on Wednesday. 

Spellings – There will be no formal tests for spelling - children will be learning rules and patterns in class during daily spelling lessons and investigations.

Times Tables – It is imperative that children regularly practise their times tables. We will have regular times tables quizzes in school and homework will involve times tables activities and games each week.

Water bottles - We encourage all children to bring in their own water bottle which they have access to throughout the day.


Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to arrange a meeting with me at the school office at any time. 

Miss Martin and Mrs Gillani
