From Wednesday 21st February, year 5 children will be taking part in a weekly swimming lesson until Easter.

All sessions will take place on Wednesdays. All children will take part in the swimming lesson, which is ran by a qualified swimming instructor. School staff will supervise all children at all times.

Class 7will go swimming on Wednesdays (starting 21st February)


Equipment needed:

  • A towel
  • Swimming hat – all children must have a swimming hat as these are available to buy from school (swimming hats cost £1.20 and all payments need to be made using Parent Pay).
  • Boys- swimming trunks or swim shorts- No big baggy Bermuda style shorts as they can weigh them down
  • Girls require a swimsuit- No bikinis
  • All jewellery (earrings to be removed before the session)
  • A bag for the items
  • A coat


If your child comes to school with their swimming kit on beneath their school uniform, please make sure they have their underwear in their bag to change into.


Swimming is a National Curriculum subject that all children are expected to take part in.


All jewellery must be removed at home and girls must have their hair neatly tied up.  Please let school know if there are any issues.

Thank you, 

Year 5 Staff

Class 7 Homework Expectations


Hi all, 

As a class, we have decided to minimise the amount of paper we are using therefore our homework is now being set online. 

All children are expected to complete:

- spelling quiz on purple mash, children should also practise these at home within the week, I will be posting them onto the website weekly under Year 5 - Important Information. Children will then be tested weekly on these in class. 
- maths on purple mash - the activity will be based around work we have completed in class that week. If children struggle, please ask them to discuss with me. 
- TTRS - each week there is a tournament set across the year group and I am determined to get Class 7 winning awards! Let’s encourage them to do as much as they can on there!


Any questions, please speak to me (Miss Sheldon)

Due to the awful rain, we weren’t able to release the butterflies at school. Miss Sheldon took them home to release them and they were so brave!

How amazing is metamorphosis!!
