Miss Davies

Welcome to Year 5's class page! 


Our class teacher is Miss Davies

Mrs MustardMrs McCartney and MrCrompton are our teaching assistants.


Bob the fish is our class pet.





We are learning lots of new and interesting things in Year 5!


Things to remember .......

Children should only be bringing a minimum number of items into school each day. These are:

-Lunch and snack in wipeable containers  (Pupils that do not have toast in school may bring in fruit only as a snack.) 

-A water bottle (we ask that the bottles that spray water are not brought into school) filled with water or flavoured water only (no juice please).

-A coat

-A school book bag, which should be used for diaries and homework only. 

Pupil diaries should be signed at home daily and handed in every morning. These will only be handled and given out by the class teacher and will be stamped daily to minimise contact. 

Any important messages or important information can be communicated through pupil diaries and will be checked daily in school.

We are now operating an electronic payment system, therefore all payments must be made online and not sent into school with children.





- Spelling test day. Children should learn their weekly spellings at home during the week, using the resources provided in packs (which are given out half-termly), as well as on Purple Mash.

These packs (including spellings books) should be kept at home at all times.

Spellings will be tested through dictated sentences, so children need to know the meaning and spelling of the word in order to take part in the test. 

-Homework will also be given out half-termly as a pack, and should be handed in on the first week back after each break.

-Home readers will be given out on a 2-weekly basis, with book reviews for children to complete for each book read. Children will be given their home reader on a Monday, and should return it no later than Thursday the following week (10 days later) so that these books can be 'quarantined' and swapped in time. 


Rest  of the week:


  • PE is on Wednesdays and Fridays. Children must come to school in their tracksuits on both days and should not bring in any PE kits in order to minimise items coming into and going out of school. 



Star of the week, Bucket Fillers and Housepoint winners will be announced.

Our school Newsletter can be found on the website and any other news on Twitter @StMarysrcpb  





Music lessons:

If your child has guitar lessons with Mrs Connolly, or music lessons with the School's Music Service, they will be told at the start of the year which day their lesson is on.


Music, Zumba and Sports4Kids payments. You will be informed of how much on the newsletter.
