Welcome to Year 5
We would like to warmly welcome you to our Year 5 page. Here, you will find lots of useful information about our curriculum, learning expectations, important dates and some pictures and videos to enjoy. We have a fantastic year of learning ahead and can’t wait to get started!
Children in Year 5 will enter through the Bylands Road gate at 8.40.
In Year 5 children are allowed to walk alone home as long as we have parental permission for them to do so. We will be running a one-way system for collecting children. Please enter school through the lower school gate and follow the route through the playground to collect your child from the classroom door. Collection will be from 3pm.
PE will be on Wednesday and children should come to school in their PE kit.
