Children should come to school in their PE kits on PE days. Our PE day is on Mondays.

When we are swimming, children should come to school in school uniform and bring a swimsuit, towel and swimming hat.

Our PE Kit consists of:

  • White T-shirt with Fulfen logo and black shorts;
  • Additional navy Fulfen hoody and navy tracksuit bottoms for outdoor PE;
  • Trainers;
  • In extremely cold weather, extra layers such as under-layers, hats and gloves are permissible as long as the activity can be carried out safely in these (a staff member will advise the children appropriately);
  • In hot weather, please can children apply their own suncream on before school and make sure that they have a drink and hat with them (a staff member will advise the children whether their hat is appropriate for an activity or not).

Hair and Jewellery:

  • No jewellery (including fitness bands) should be worn for PE;
  • Earrings should be removed and not taped over;
  • Long hair must be tied back.



Snack is sold at morning break. Please ensure that children bring in the correct change!

Children can bring in their own healthy snack if they prefer.

All children should bring in a (named) waterbottle to access during the day.



Seesaw Family App

As your child uses Seesaw in school, you can download the Seesaw App. Sign in as a family member and this will allow you to view, like and comment on your child's work as well as see any messages from the class teacher.  If you haven't yet logged in, ask your class teacher for an invite. 

Meet the Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers,
We have had a brilliant half term and we hope our Year 5 pupils enjoyed their well-deserved break. Next term in English we will start looking at war poetry linked to World War 1 and the text ‘The Last Post’ by Keith Campion.  In Reading, we will look at a variety of texts, including non-fiction texts, starting with ‘There’s a boy in the girl’s bathroom’ by Louis Sachar.. Please continue to read your book every night and learn your spellings each week.   In Maths, we will be starting off with addition and subtraction and move onto multiplication and division. Please continue to go on Times Table Rockstars as often as possible.   Our new Science topic will be Earth, Moon and Space and our new Geography topic will be be a focusing on Rivers and Mountains. The launch for this will be our trip to the Wolseley Centre on Thursday 3rd November. We will looking at some exciting new topics in other subjects as well, including in RE we will be studying Christmas and in PSHE our new topic will be Rights and Responsibilities. 5S will continue swimming on Monday 31st October, whilst 5D will have PE on Monday afternoon in school. We will keep you informed when they swap over.  Thank you for all your support over last term and thank you for taking your time to come to parents evening.
