John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’

Year 5

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back to 2021 and another new term of learning.


Lockdown may be with us but the learning doesn't stop- head over to Seesaw each day for your lessons.


Mr G and Mr P will be online to teach and answer any questions or queries that you may have during normal school hours each day, so do not hesitate to contact us, either via Seesaw or :


We shall aim to update this page with any news or important changes as they happen.


For now, stay safe and look after each other.


Mr Gooch, Mr Palmer and Mr Tongue.

Spring Term 1 Overview 2020-21

Autumn Term, last week of term and Christmas Party


Dear Parents and Carers, We have finally made it to the last week of term and your children have been working really hard in lessons and on assessments recently. Into the last few days, we shall be doing some slightly more festive activities including the party on Wednesday!


By necessity, it's going to be very unlike previous parties, and is really just a chance for the children to relax for the afternoon in class and within the Year 5 bubble. There will be no need or indeed real scope for bringing anything extra in, so please make sure your children come to school in their PE kits as usual in the morning, but don't send in toys or any extra food as we have to minimise any infection risks.


We were thinking the children may wish to wear their Christmas jumpers again however, which can be taken off during PE. In they afternoon, they can wear it within the bubble as we watch festive cartoons and munch on snacks and drinks provided by the Friends of John Clifford instead!


The children will still enjoy this adapted version of the Christmas party and this way we all keep as safe as can be.


Team Y5.
