Welcome to Year 5's information page.  Below, you will find all you need to know about the upcoming term, what we're going to be learning as well as other information about this term.

Keep an eye out for any other important information, like our exciting theatre trip!  Letters will be sent home.

A reminder that all children must have the correct PE kit in school at all times.  Children should wear dark (navy/black) shorts, a white T-shirts and plimsolls when inside and can wear trainers and tracksuits outside as the weather gets colder. Long hair should be tied back. In line with our school uniform policy, the only earrings permitted are small plain studs.  All year six classes have PE on Thursday and Friday.
