Things to Remember:

5D- Tuesday (Outdoor Games) & Thursday (Gymnastics)

5S- Thursday (Gymnastics) & Friday (swimming).

5T- Tuesday (Gymnastics) & Friday (swimming)

On PE days (not swimming) the children need to come to school in suitable PE clothes and trainers.  If your class is swimming, please check previous emails for key information.

Please do not allow your child to wear jewellery (other than stud earrings) to school.

Despite being in appropriate PE clothing on the days when we have PE, we still expect the children to be smart and expect them to wear their usual school jumper / cardigan over their kits. 



While we do not give out weekly homework, we do expect the children to continue to practise their times tables to 12x12 by heart for instant recall. We also encourage the children to read regularly to someone at home and talk about their books. We encourage reading for pleasure and allowing the children to read texts that they find interesting and enjoyable. 

We always encourage home learning if the children want to explore our topics further in their own time and love seeing their work!

Book bags:

Every child has a book bag of their own which they keep their reading book inside. This book bag and book needs to be brought into school everyday, we expect children to read this book to an adult at home at least 3 times per week or everyday if possible. 

Year 5 will change their reading books weekly.
