Blenheim Primary School

"Aiming high in the heart of the city"

Year 5



Welcome to Year 5!

   

 

This year our classes are named on the theme of living creatures, so the Year 5 classes are called:

Snow Leopard and Peacock



Snow Leopard: we are taught by Mrs Simkin and Miss Hogg

Peacock: we are taught by Mr Hillard and Mr Sharp

 

 

ALL children need to have a pair of indoor footwear for use around school - these could be pumps, slippers or another pair of shoes or trainers.

 

PE is on a Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings

Please ensure your child has their P.E on these days, including suitable footwear for PE outside, trousers or shorts, the plain red t-shirt that is our PE uniform and a tracksuit top for cooler days as PE is often done outside.

 

 

Homework:

Learning log homework, spellings and times tables will be given out every Friday and need to be returned no later than the following Wednesday.

All children are expected to complete their homework - the spellings and times tables will be tested in school.

Children are also expected to read their home reading book at least three times every week - more often is better and aids faster learning and progress.
