Welcome to Year 5!

Updated: Jan 13

Your teachers this year are...

I am thrilled to be Year 5's teacher this year. As you are aware, I taught this class last year and we had a lot of fun together - I can't wait to teach them again this year!

PE kits and days

We will be having two hours of PE a week, on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

It is very important that your child has a suitable indoor and outdoor PE kit with trainers. Please make sure that your child's PE kit is clearly named.

On these days please send your child into school wearing their P.E. kit as we no longer ask that children get changed at school.


Homework is very important as it helps your child to revise what they have learnt in school. It also helps to keep you informed of their progress and the current topics in the classroom. Homework will be set every Friday and usually given a week to complete.

Things we need

  • A bottle of water (no juice please in case of sticky spillages!)

  • A healthy snack at break. Fruit is encouraged to be brought in to school each day for morning or afternoon break.

  • Fridays are 'treat' days, so your child can bring in a treat for their snack! Alternatively, your child can bring in money for our school's tuck shop which will allow them to buy a sausage roll/Capri Sun (50p each). We have a tuck shop money box in the classroom so please hand the money to the teacher on the day where it will be kept safe.

  • Book bag with reading book and reading record.

Celebrating success!

Year 5 is full of amazing children and we want to celebrate every success and achievement during this year both inside and outside of school. We would love to hear about all the amazing things your child does, so please do come in and tell us about them.

As a team, we are always here for you. If you need to discuss anything, please see me at the classroom door and I can book an appointment with you so we can discuss your child without feeling rushed. If you need any other information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Mr Jenkins.
