Year 5 Information PowerPoint

Reading at home

Reading is an essential skill that children use throughout their learning. Please ensure that your child/ren are reading for 10-15 minutes everyday at home. This can be their coloured band book, OTTER book or any other book they have at home. Please then ensure that their reading record is filled in with the date, name of book, comment on your child/ren's reading and sign. 




It is important to ensure your child does the homework they are set. This will include reading, spellings and maths. 


- Maths and spelling activities are set on a THURSDAY.
- Homework is handed in / spellings tested on a TUESDAY.
- Children will also be tested weekly on their times tables this will take place on a Friday. Please practise these at home with your child/ren. 
-Homework help drop in sessions will be on Tuesday lunchtimes for anyone who needs help or wasn’t sure what to do with their homework.

P.E Days

This term our PE units will be gymnastics and ball games.
Our PE days will be Tuesdays and Fridays.
Friday is swimming days until half term. 
Children should come to school wearing their P.E kits on these days.
Please ensure that they are wearing white tops, black/navy shorts, socks, trainers or plimsolls. In colder weather, the children will be able to wear a plain black or navy tracksuit.
As usual, long hair needs to be tied back and earrings removed before coming to school.
