Y5 Outdoor Learning Day


Learning Overview



This half term, Year 5's PE days will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Wednesday will be Outdoor Sports with Miss Pippa and Thursday will be Swimming.
Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school at all times - black shorts, a green St Joseph's t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls.
Year 5 children will also be doing the 'daily mile' on the other three days.


Please encourage your child to read as often as possible (ideally at least three times a week.) This can be by themselves, to a family member or to a sibling - and children, please remember to record it in the reading record books. These will be checked on a Monday. 



A paper copy of the spelling list for the first term will be sent home with your child. Children will be tested on a Thursday each week. Spelling frame is an excellent website to support your child with spelling. Click HERE for a link to it. 



Please click  HERE to find out what our homework expectations are. Your child will receive homework of times tables and spellings. Times tables will be distributed and returned on Mondays. Spellings will be tested and distributed on Thursdays.  


Please make sure your child attends school in the correct school uniform. This includes plain black shoes or trainers. They also must be wearing a tie. 


Thank you parents and carers!

We really do appreciate your support.

A warm welcome to a new school year


 Dear children, parents and carers,


I am thrilled to be able to welcome you all back and am very excited to begin a new academic year together as the year five St. Philip Howard's class. I feel honoured to be your child's teacher this year and please be assured that I will do my very best to ensure they are safe and happy at all times. I look forward to seeing them flourish and getting to know them all. If you have any questions about your child's learning, please do not hesitate to catch me before or after school. Please check this web page regularly for updates from inside the classroom!


  I look forward to meeting you all and to a great year ahead!

 Mrs Gilbert
