In Science, we are zooming into space.  We will be learning about spherical bodies and the phases of the moon.  We will be designing moon buggies in Design and Technology.

Autumn Term 2023


What do you need to know?


You will need a water bottle every day and if you are not having hot school meals, please ensure you bring a packed lunch.  You can bring in a healthy snack for playtimes if you would like to.  

Weather-dependent, you will need a coat, especially as it gets cooler and more chances of rain.  In the hotter months, please apply sun cream before school, and don't forget your sun hat!


Once the school has received permission from your parents/guardians, you can walk to and from school on your own.  


We expect you to keep your lockers tidy, make sure you take home old food containers and bottles.  


When do you need your PE kit?

For the Autumn term, our two P.E days are Tuesday and Thursday.  Please ensure you have the correct kit in school for those two days.  We suggest you bring your kit in, fresh, on a Monday morning and usually we will allow you to go home in your kit on Thursday afternoons.  






Autumn Term 1 Timetable

Lost Property & Cloakroom Space

We have a lost property box in our class cupboard, but let’s hope that we keep our belongings safe!  All children have their own lockers in the corridor where they can store all personal items.  Please ensure your child's property is clearly labelled with their name.


Please try to read regularly with your child; filling in their reading diaries at least 5 times a week. Regular, varied reading not only helps develop reading skills but also has a positive impact on writing standards, spelling, knowledge of grammar rules and most importantly imagination. I firmly believe home reading is still vitally important in Year 5.


Homework will be set in their homework books, this will be set on Fridays and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday. If children are unable to complete their homework tasks, please send a message on the Classroom by Monday so I can help with any problem areas. Your child has a login for Times Tables Rock Stars, there is the expectation that they complete activities on this fantastic platform.  Little and often is most effective!  


I hope you find this information useful. I will be available at the gate after school each day. Please do not hesitate to catch us if you have any questions or alternatively you can send me an email (fran.reeder@navenby.lincs.sch.uk).


Best Wishes,

Miss Reeder
