Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to the Year 5 section of the St Ignatius’ website. I am looking forward to teaching your children this year.
Year 5 is an important year for your child, as they will be learning many new skills which will be used in the KS2 SATs next year. We aim to work very hard, but we never forget that childhood is the best part of our lives, so we always try to have fun whilst learning.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if needed, preferably after school.
Mrs I. Pugh
If you need to contact me but have been unable to do so personally, then please use the following email address:

THE YEAR 5 TEAM
Mrs Pugh – Teacher
Mrs Morris & Mrs Maje (Wednesday) – Teaching Assistants
We have P.E. on Tuesday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has a white t-shirt, shorts and suitable footwear (pumps or trainers) in school ready for these lessons.
Please visit the school blog to keep up to date on what we have been doing.
Spellings are handed out on Tuesdays and a spelling test is given the following Tuesday.
Reading books are changed regularly and children are expected to read at home on a daily basis. Please discuss the book your child is reading with them and check that they understand what they are reading.
Homework is handed out every Friday and it is the responsibility of your child to submit that to be marked.
Thank you for all your support,

Purple Mash is a website that the children use to do work in many areas of the curriculum. Children can log onto the Purple Mash website at home as well as at school. Please see your child’s teacher if your child cannot remember their unique username and password.
If our Year 5 ‘bubble’ is closed at any point, children may go online more frequently. Parents, please familiarise yourself and your children with some basic online safety rules which will help everyone enjoy their time online:
ISOLATING AND HOME LEARNING
Should we be required to isolate due to COVID-19 this year, we will put work onto the Showbie website. Parents and carers will be sent more information about this at the time of any isolation.
