Attendance Matters - Each week we are expected to have a whole class attendance of over 95%.

Your attendance is very important! You must be at school every day at 8.40 am. Lessons begin just after 8.45 am so you need to be here, ready for a fun-filled day of learning!


Timetable: We begin each morning with reading - this is the time your child will change their home reading book if necessary. Then we have an assembly RAMP, English, Fluency and Power Maths lessons before lunchtime. In the afternoons, we study the foundation subjects such as Art, Science, History, Geography, RE, Music, RHE and PE. We have a class story every day.


Reading: As well as reading regularly at school, children are expected to read as often as possible at home too. This might not always be your reading book, but reading diaries can still be signed so children can move up the Reading Challenge! This is especially important in Year 5 to support their progress through KS2. Children should have their books in school every day.


Monday will be our library day, every child will have the opportunity to visit the school library and loan a book for a week. This book can be used for story time at home and is not linked to the child's reading ability and scheme. Please ensure library books are returned every Monday so that your child can choose a new story; they will only be able to loan one book at a time.

It's also important to make time to share stories together as this has been shown to increase your child's well-being and academic success. Have a look at the 50 Recommended Reads for Year 5 if you're stuck for ideas on what to read at home. CLICK HERE for the full list of books.


Spellings: Children will be given spellings to learn every week. It is important to practise them regularly so they are ready for their spelling test on a Friday. Spellings for the week are given every Friday for the following Friday.  


Homework: Homework will be set each Friday and will be expected to be completed and back into school by the following Wednesday. Children will have 2 homework booklets where a page from each booklet will be set to complete. The homework will match the learning that we are doing in class. There will be a Math booklet and a SPAG booklet. Please let me know if you are having trouble with your homework before the due date. 


Times Table Rockstars: In Year 5, all children have access to Times Table Rockstars

Login details will be stuck on the inside of their reading records. Please log on and practise as much as you can. Quick recall of times table facts is important when working mathematically.


PE:  We have two PE lessons per week on Tuesday and Thursday. Our PE kit is a white PE top, tracksuit bottoms (no leggings please), shorts, trainers, socks and a waterproof jacket/coat.
