Children are expected to read everyday (reading records initialed by a parent) and need to read to a parent regularly (a comment is needed from the parent at least 3 times a week.)  Reading records are to be handed in everyday.  Children can choose to read using Reading Plus instead of their school reading book but parents must still note this in their reading record.

Homework - this will be given on a Friday and needs to be handed in by Thursday.  Homework will include spellings, maths and grammar.






Whilst in Year 5, children are given the opportunity to go swimming. Swimming days for each class are:

  • Class 11 (Miss Bailey) - Tuesday morning (Autumn 1, Spring 1, Summer 1)
  • Class 12 (Mrs Lyell) - Tuesday morning (Autumn 2, Spring 2, Summer 2)


Please make sure your child has their swimming costume/trunks (no baggy shorts), cap and towel. Children must ensure that their earrings are removed prior to swimming.



P.E. kit is black shorts/skort, red t-shirt, black plimsolls for indoor and trainers for outdoor (these can simply be brought into school on PE day)

Class 11 (Miss Bailey) - Friday am

Class 12 (Mrs Lyell) - Tuesday am


Children will also take part in a weekly tennis lesson on a Thursday lunchtime.
