Welcome to Year 5 from Mrs Bettridge, Deputy Head
Welcome to the year 5 class page where you can find useful information about what to expect this year.
Parent' Handbook (below) contains specific information for 2021/22 with details of the daily routines, year 5 curriculum, uniform and PE days. For more detailed information about the year 5 curriculum click here.
Staff from the year 5 team will also upload photos of events during the year so keep checking back to the class page.
I hope it will be an exciting year where the year 5 children continue to learn, develop their skills and have fun. If you have any questions please talk to me or the year 5 class teachers.
Forest School for Year 5 is once every half term. You will be notified of the dates in advance. For more information about Forest School visit our Forest School page here.
Information on our school uniform can be viewed by clicking here. Specific things to note for year 5 are they require a Bridgewater rucksack.
Pupils in year 5 who represent the school in sports matches such as cross country, etc may wear 'Team Bridgewater' kit. This is all optional and available from Mapac.
Use of reading record books
Reading record books are to be used to record reading at home and this should include the book title and chapter, or page numbers and should be recorded at least 3 times a week and initialled by parents. Reading records need to be signed by parents at the end of each week ready for the teacher to review.
Reading records may also be used for notifying us of changes of going home arrangements etc. Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on the school's answer machine.
As part of our preparation for the children's transition to secondary school, teachers may ask pupils to note reminders in their reading records e.g. items that they need to bring into school, such as resources for a project, to encourage them to be independent and to take responsibility.
As well as reading, your child will also receive weekly home learning (either maths, literacy or a creative task) which is expected to take up to 30 min. Plus a weekly spelling task.
