Welcome to Year 5
The teachers are Miss Scott and Mr Ridley.
In Year 5 our children swim on a Wednesday (Mr Ridley’s Class) and a Thursday (Miss Scott’s class). For swimming, children require a swimming costume/trunks, a towel and a swimming hat. The swimming hats can be purchased at school for £1.50.
We currently do PE on a Thursday afternoon, although children are required to have their PE kits in school at all times, in case they are involved in sports festivals or tournaments. Homework is handed out at the beginning of each term, and is to be returned to school by the dates indicated on the guide sheet, and can be found in the homework folder on the website.
Twice each year we have a meeting for parents to ensure that they are aware of the expectations, and how they can support their child with their learning at home. In school we promote Growth Mindset, encouraging children to take on challenges and take risks with their learning. Below is a link to find out more information about Growth Mindset.
