Homework will be set every Monday and needs to be completed by the following Monday.


Reading is very important and we would like the children to have a reading book with them every day. We encourage the children to read to someone at home every day. Please sign in their diaries when you have heard them read.


Every week there will be English homework on, the user names and passwords for this are in the homework diaries.


Maths homework will be alternated each week. There will either be work set on or The login for these have also been placed in the homework diaries.


Spelling words are given out on a Monday. We revise them during the week in class but it is still necessary to learn these words at home for the spelling test the following Monday.

Please can Parents/Carers sign the homework book weekly. This will be checked on Monday morning for the previous week.


In year 5, we have PE on Tuesday and Friday. Please come to school wearing your PE kit on these days, dressed appropriately for the weather. Earrings should not be worn during PE. Please either remove them before school or ensure that your child is able to remove them independently before the lesson. We also take part in the Daily Mile.
