Useful information

Find out more about what we are learning and our topics for each half term by going to our curriculum overviews here.

PE lessons take place on Mondays for Year 5 children.  Please come to school dressed in school PE uniform on Mondays.

Please ensure your child brings a drink bottle to school with them every day - this should contain water or diluted fruit squash.  Your child will be able to refill their bottle during the school day from our special water coolers to keep themselves hydrated.  Children may also bring a healthy snack to eat at playtime - you can find out more about suitable snacks here.  Please do not allow your child to bring any toys, games or other items into school from home.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child and their learning, please do speak to your child's class teacher at the end of the day or drop into the school office to make an appointment as we are always happy to meet with you.

Home learning

Homework helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on in school during the week.  Immersing your child in reading is the most important thing.  Children should read at home with an adult at least 5 times a week and this should be recorded in your child's home learning journal.  There is also a space to learn spellings, practice maths and information is provided about half-termly projects to be completed at home.  You can find out more about our homework expectations here.  Children are expected to bring their home learning journal and school reading books to school every day.

Online learning resources

We subscribe to various websites which you can use at home to support your child's learning.  Your child's teacher will be able to provide you with the necessary log in details, and these should be stuck in your child's home learning journal.  Click on the links below to access the resources.
