Welcome to Year 5 with Miss Purcell.
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Keise
Welcome to Year 5! We are going to have a very exciting and productive year. In Autumn term, we will start off with our topic ‘Marvellous Maps’, where we will be learning a number of key map skills that we can apply when examining local, national and global maps.
On Tuesdays and Fridays, Year 5 have P.E. You will need to come into school in your P.E kit on those days, so that you do not need to get changed for P.E. P.E kit must be proper school P.E kit – black tracksuit bottoms or shorts, your house P.E shirt and either your school hoodie or jumper. Nothing else will be accepted.
Spellings will be given out on Fridays, for a test on the following Friday.
From this term, you can start taking your own school bag into school. You will only need to bring in your water bottle, snack and lunch, if you are sandwiches. In class, you will be provided with a pencil case, which contains a pencil, pen, ruler, rubber, glue stick, whiteboard pen, whiteboard cloth and highlighter. This will stay in school. However, you are welcome to bring in some of your own coloured pens or pencils to use during topic work.
I look forward to a happy and successful term!
