Indoor Kit (School Yellow PE top, black shorts and pumps) will be needed on a Friday for Athletics.

Year 5 will continue to go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon.

Please note PE kit can be left in school for the half term. It is important that children have their PE kit ready for lessons as children who do not have kit in school will lose golden time. 

Swimming kits will be needed every Wednesday. This is a one piece swimming costume for girls, or swimming shorts above the knee for boys. If your child requires goggles, you will need to provide a note confirming this for the swimming teachers.


Times Tables: Children will be set a times table to learn on a Friday with their homework to be tested on a Monday (after a week of learning)

English and Maths: Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on Wednesday. Please help your child to hand their homework in on time as children with late homework will lose golden time.

Reading: Children in year 5 should be reading regularly at home.

We will listen to children read in school at least once a week. Reading books must be brought into school every day and will be checked regularly. Please listen to your child read at home and make comments in their reading record.

For more detailed information on what we will be doing this half term please take a look at our class newsletter.
