Welcome to Year 5 

 Year Group Leaders Welcome

Welcome to Year 5!

I hope you and your children have had a fun but relaxing summer- it’s hard to believe we’re moving into September already. However, we are ready for a fantastic year and one that will be a big change for the children as they move into the upper part of school.

This term we have some very interesting topics planned as part of our Time Travellers theme across school.  In Autumn 1 the children will be delving into Local History- Mining in Sunderland and in Autumn 2 they will be ‘Looking to the Future’ at space and robots.

The children will bring home reading books and homework. We ask that reading books are brought into school on a Tuesday and Thursday each week and homework will be sent out on a Monday every two weeks. Swimming is on Thursdays and 5JE will start this term.  PE days are as follows: 5JE-Tuesday; 5CS- Wednesday; 5SC-Thursday.  Please ensure your child brings in their kit on their day.

We will update this page regularly to share with you the great work going on in the year group.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any comments or queries.
