PE Days

PE in Year 5 is on Tuesday. Please make sure that your child wears an appropriate PE kit to school on Tuesdays. Our PE kit is plain black shorts, leggings or joggers; plain white/green or school PE t-shirt; school jumper. 

Year 5 will be swimming on Friday afternoons. Please ensure that your child brings an appropriate swimming kit. This includes swimsuit/shorts, goggles and a towel. 

Homework

Weekly spelling homework is given out on Monday for a test on Friday. Please support your child to read every day at home for at least 15 minutes.  Children will be expected to practise times tables at home using Times Tables Rockstars.

Useful Information

To reduce unnecessary use of plastic cups, please ensure that your child brings in a labelled reusable water bottle every day.
