General Information for Parents in Year 5 

PE days - Monday and Friday every week. Please make sure that your children have both indoor and outdoor kit in school at all times. In the Spring Term we are doing gymnastics and a football inspired invasion game.

We will be discussing SRE during the Spring Term. If you have any concerns, please speak to a member of the teaching staff.

Our cloakroom areas can become quite crowded with bags, coats and uniform. Please help us to keep it tidy and to cut down the lost property by using small bags, labelling everything and only bringing in essentials. Let us know if anything goes missing, we'll do our best to help you find it.
