Year 5 - Quail

Due to the Berkhamsted reorganisation Bridgewater Primary School does not currently have any children in Year 5. 

1. Key information for Quail class


In this section you will find a quick reference guide to your class including your Forest School and Wheelie Wednesday rotation, letters and uniform requirements. There is also a copy of the welcome booklet for your class - please do refer to it throughout the year because it contains lots of useful information about what to expect in this class, how long homework should take each week, samples of age-appropriate handwriting and more.

Use of planners

[Based on Year 3] Planners should be checked daily for notes from school and any notes for teachers, including collection arrangements, should be noted in the planner. Reading (including book title and chapter or page numbers) should be recorded at least 3 times a week in planners and initialled by parents. Planners need to be signed by parents at the end of each week ready for the teacher’s signature on Monday morning. Pupils must take responsibility for ensuring this happens every week.



[Anything to draw out of class booklets?]


Reading lists

We are often asked to recommend books for each age group at Bridgewater. Here are some suggestions from your class teacher. We hope you enjoy exploring these books. 


Spelling lists

[Probably not needed but parents complain lists don't make it home - there are requests for copy lists on Facebook every week -  therefore included just in case the lists for the year could go here]


Uniform requirements

A full list of the school's uniform requirements is on the school website here [link]. In Year 5, points to note are:
