Year 4 & 5

Hello and Welcome!

Our teachers are Mrs Dowson and Mrs Smithson-Shaw.

Year 5 Swimming

Swimming will start on 15th April, 2021 and continue every Thursday up until the summer holidays.


Boys must wear swimming trunks or sensible swimming shorts which are above the knee and girls
must wear a one piece swimming costume. Long hair has to be tied back and a hair brush/comb is
In addition, all children need a towel, a swimming cap (available to buy from Fulwood Leisure
Centre) and a suitable bag for their swimming kit (no carrier bags); toiletries are not required as the
children do not have time to shower after their lesson.
Please ensure that your child brings the correct swimming kit to school every Thursday.

If your child has a medical condition that we are not aware of, or if you have any queries please
contact the school office.


Class Dojo

Class Dojo is the quickest way to contact us directly.

If you have any questions, please come and see either Mrs Dowson or Mrs Smithson-Shaw.


PE Kit Reminder

Please remember that all children need to come to school in their PE kit every Tuesday and Thursday. Please could you make sure that they are wearing leggings in the colder, wetter weather.

No PE kit will mean they will have to go to another class with work to do.

Many thanks.


Water Bottles

Please could all children bring a labelled water bottle to school for their own personal use during the day.



Please could children remove jewellery prior to PE lessons on a Tuesday and Thursday. Staff are unable to remove earrings for children, nor are we allowed to cover with plasters. Please provide your child with plasters, if necessary.


School Uniform

Please remember that all children should wear school uniform for the duration of the school day. Children are permitted to wear boots or trainers for outdoor use but should have black school shoes in school to change into.



Homework will be given on Thursdays to be completed by the following Thursday. Completed homework will be rewarded with Dojo points.  


Reading and Library Books

Reading books are changed when finished, providing an adult/family member has signed the reading record book.


Times tables

At the end of Year 4 all children will take a national times tables test.  Please encourage your child to learn all of their tables by the end of Year 4. Year 5 children should continue to practice their tables to improve speed and accuracy of recall.

TT Rockstars is a fantastic resource which will support your child’s learning.


Common Exception Words for Spelling

Above are the lists of words for each Key Stage. These are the words that the children are expected to be able to read and spell by the end of Year 4 (for Year 4's) and Year 6 (for Year 5's). Please help your child with learning them as well as their usual weekly spellings.
