 Useful Information

  • Year 5 PE days are usually on Tuesdays (indoor) and Wednesdays (outdoor).
    Children will need to wear their PE kits for the duration of the day. Children will need shorts for indoor PE sessions which can be worn underneath jogging bottoms on colder days. 

  • Weekly music lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will be continuing their knowledge of how to play the ukelele but will focus more on intonation, reading sheet music and learning different tunes.

  • If your child has anything they wish to discuss, please encourage them to approach their teacher first. In Year 5 we strive to achieve greater independence.  
  • To communicate with the class teacher you can either ring the school office on 01793 700443 or email the office admin@haydonleighschool.co.uk to be forwarded to the class teacher and they will get back to you as soon as possible
    Many thanks for your support in this busy academic year.
