We are learning lots of new and interesting things in Year 5!


Things to remember .......


-Lunch and snack  (Pupils that do not have toast in school may bring in fruit only as a snack.) 

-A water bottle (we ask that the bottles that spray water are not brought into school) filled with water or flavoured water only (no juice please).

-A coat (when needed)

-A school bag

-Pencil cases can be brought in but will be kept in the children's boxes until needed.

Pupil diaries should be brought in every day and handed in signed on a Friday. 

Any important messages or information can be communicated through pupil diaries. Pupils will be expected to be responsible for informing the class teacher if they have a message to read.

We are now operating an electronic payment system, therefore all payments can be made online if it is more convenient.






  • Spelling test day. Children should learn their weekly spellings at home during the week, using the resources provided in packs (which are given out half-termly).
  • The spelling sentences worksheet should be completed at home and handed in on the following Friday- completed. 

The other parts of the pack (including spellings books) should be kept at home.

Spellings will be tested through dictated sentences, so children need to know the meaning and spelling of the word in order to take part in the test. 

-Homework and Home Readers will be given out on a Monday and should be handed in on the following Friday each week. Children will receive 'blips' if they forget or don't complete homework. 3 'blips' = missed break and they will be asked to complete it during this time.

(It is really important that your child's reading record is signed and indicates where they are up to in their books so that we can ensure they are renewed or exchanged on the correct day. We also encourage KS2 Parents/Guardians to question their children about the book whether read independently or not, as this is good practice for Reading Comprehensions and ensures they have understood the text). There are some reading resources attached to this page for anyone who would like to see the kinds of questions the children may be asked. 


Rest  of the week:


  • PE is on Wednesdays and Fridays. Children must come to school in their school tracksuits on both days 


  • Friday- homework , spelling worksheet and home readers to be handed in. 



Star of the week, Good Work, Bucket Fillers and Tea@2 will be announced during assembly on a Monday afternoon.
