WELCOME TO YEAR 5

General Year 5 information
 
P.E.
Children will need to wear their P.E. kits on a Monday and Wednesday.
 
Homework
English and maths homework is set each week on a Thursday and must be handed in on a Wednesday. Children are expected to read at least 3 times per week but ideally daily, with the emphasis on reading for pleasure. Times tables should be practised as often as possible. Spellings are set every week. Topic and research projects will be set as an alternative occasionally. 
 
How can I help my child at home?
Listening to your child read at home as often as possible continues to be essential to their progress. Children can borrow books from the class library or from the school library. Please continue to practise spellings and times tables on a weekly basis.
