Homework Expectations

In Year 5, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary in which they should record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Thursday and must be back in school the following Wednesday. Each Friday, children receive a list of spellings, based on our spelling rule for the week, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class the following Friday.



Autumn Term

We have P.E. every Thursday and Friday afternoon so please ensure that your child has the correct kit in school. Our Forest School lesson will be on a Tuesday afternoon in the second half of the autumn term.


Spring and Summer Terms

We have Swimming every Monday and P.E. on Thursdays.
