PE Days

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

For swimming on Fridays, please make sure your child comes to school with swimming kit and a towel, plus anything else needed as appropriate (e.g. hair cap, goggles).

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.
