Key Information

PE Lessons – PE kits are now to be worn to school on the days we have PE. This half term year 5 will be swimming on a Monday and need to bring their swimming kit with them, we will have PE on a Friday and should arrive at school in a full PE kit and will wear it all day. A list of the full PE kit can be found on the website under Parents > School Uniform

Water bottles - Please ensure your child is bringing in a named water bottle every day.

Reading Books - Reading books and records should be brought to school daily. We encourage children to read every day to support the development of their reading fluency and exposure to rich vocabulary. Please ensure you are encouraging your child to be independent with their reading record but that you do sign it too. Once children have read a whole book they then complete the quiz on Accelerated Reader before choosing a new book.

Pencil Cases - Children are welcome to bring a pencil case to school, however it will need to stay in their locker and only be used in the class when the teacher advises. All stationary needed for daily lessons is provided.


Homework will be set every Friday and due, the following Wednesday.

Reading comprehension, grammar and punctuation -  Children will be using the Targeted practice books. We aim to always make the homework relevant to children learning in class but also varied content. Children will be advised which pages they are expected to complete. will sometimes be used and children have been provided with login details.

Maths - This will be set on a weekly basis. Maths tasks will be set on MyMaths and/or in the Targeted Practice book. The children will be advised which tasks they are expected to complete.

Spellings - Spellings are given out on a Monday and the children will be tested on these on the Friday.

Please see below for the Autumn overview:

Please be aware the overview can be subject to change as we work at a pace set by the children, sometimes things move faster or slower, and we will constantly adapt to the needs of the classes.
