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

Year 5

Welcome back to school, 2019-20!


The Year 5 Staff would like to wish everybody a warm welcome back to school for the new academic year 2019-20!


The children made a super start to the new year today- long may their enthusiasm and good behaviour last!


Over the coming days, we shall be adding information about the new academic year, including details about what the children will be studying, timetables and any events that are planned. 


One early piece of useful information is about PE lessons. They will start on Monday, so the children will need their kits with them at the start of each week. Also, we shall be taking the children swimming on a Tuesday morning, so they will need their swimming costumes and towels that day too.


Much more information will be forthcoming over the next few weeks- please keep checking back!


Mr Gooch, Mr Palmer and the Y5 teaching team. 3/9/19


Here are just  a few reminders about what your children will need at school.



PE will be every Monday in Year 5, Swimming on Tuesday. The children will also be taking part in daily exercise both inside and outside. Please can you ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school all week. PE kit includes a plain white or white JC t-shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers. Please send socks if your child is wearing tights. Children will need to have earrings removed for PE lessons.



Water Bottles

Water is available to the children throughout the day in the classroom. Please provide them with a named water bottle. These will be sent home daily.


Communication Diaries

Your child has been issued with a Communication Diary. We ask that all children read at least three times a week at home and have their diary signed by an adult at home. If you have any questions or queries, please use the diary and ask your child to let us know that there is a message for us.


Parent Reading Morning

Parents' reading mornings in Year 5 will now be held on Tuesday mornings.

All parents will be welcomed!



Just a reminder that toys should not be brought into school.



The Year 5 classrooms are fully equipped with the stationery that the children will need. We encourage children not to bring anything to school that is valuable to them, as we cannot account for things going missing.



We look forward to working with you to help your child be as happy and successful as possible in Year 5!
