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 Wednesday and must be back in school the following Monday (it will be marked every Tuesday). 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. Each half term the children will be given some Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRF) to learn,  which relate to their Maths. Last term the children learnt their Roman Numerals. The focus for this half term will be square numbers and their square roots up to and including 12. 



Spring Term 2024

This Spring term, Year 5 will have P.E. every Monday and Thursday afternoon. Thursday's session will take place in school with On-Side Coaching and Monday's session will be Cross Country.  Please ensure that your child is wearing the correct kit, which includes: a school P.E. t-shirt and jumper;  plain black shorts or plain black jogging bottoms and trainers. Please ensure your child brings in a drinks bottle. 


Forest School

We will not have Forest School this half term.
