Primary School

Hello and welcome to everyone who will be in our new Year 5 this September.

We thought it would be helpful to let you know what it will be like when you start Year 5. 

Here are the answers to a few questions that you might have: 

Where should I go at the start of the day? 

You will need to enter the school via the entrance next to the Bowls club and make sure you are on the tennis courts at 8:45am. Line up on the playground, your teacher will come out and collect your class.  

What should I bring to school each day? 

It is important that you only bring a coat and only your essential items into school, in your book bag. This will include your reading book and reading diary and a named water bottle. You will not be allowed to bring rucksacks or pencil cases into school. 

Can I bring in a packed lunch? 

Yes, you will still be able to bring in a packed lunch.

What should I wear on my PE days? 

On the days that you have PE, you should come to school dressed in your PE kit. Please make sure you consider the weather as you will be wearing this all day. All Year 5 classes will have PE on Tuesday and Fridays. This will be either indoor or outdoor, so as well as your T-shirt and shorts, jogging bottoms and a warm top would be useful.

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone in September. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to send us an email. We all look forward to catching up soon.
