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 Wednesday and must be back in school the following Monday (it will be marked every 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.
We have P.E. every Thursday and Friday afternoon, so please ensure that your child is wearing the correct kit on these days, which is a school PE T-shirt, plain black shorts or plain black jogging bottoms and trainers.
Our turn for Forest School will be in the summer term. For this, children will need to wear their PE kit and bring in wellies in case of wet weather.
