Year 5


Mr S McDermott


Welcome to our Year 5 class page. Please check our webpage for key dates and reminders about what is happening in school.

PE days are Thursday and Friday. It has been decided that on these days your child can attend school in their PE kits. There may be some exceptions to this rule on occasions when the children may have to visit St Mary's Church, but you will be notified of these exceptions beforehand. 

If your child plays football, they are welcome to bring in trainers to keep in their locker and wear during lunchtime.

Year 5 are welcome to bring in their own pencil case and stationary from home. Upper juniors can also bring in a chapter book to read during quiet reading sessions.

Homework will be set on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 

​Your child should have already received their Mathletics password. 

I look forward to getting to know you all over the coming term. If you have any queries, please let me know at pickup or send an email to the office and I will try to get back to you as quickly as possible.

Warm regards,

Mr McDermott

PE Kit

Children are now allowed to wear their PE kit to school on the days that they have PE. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit which consists of a white t-shirt, navy shorts and plimsoles or trainers. During the colder weather your child should wear the School PE jumper.

If your child has to attend an event such as Mass or go on a school trip, they will be required to wear their school uniform on that day. PE kit should be brought to school and children will change for their PE lesson accordingly.

If your child has a club before school, uniform should be brought to change into, once the club has finished.

If your child has a club after school and it is not a PE day, uniform should be worn as normal and PE kit should be brought to change into before the club begins.
