Remember: you need a separate indoor and outdoor kit, as muddy trainers and clothes are not allowed indoors.


Tuesday - Orienteering and Health Related Exercise

Friday - Swimming


For PE sessions, you will need your indoor kit, which is a white T-shirt, black./ navy shorts and indoor trainers or plimsolls.


Although they may not be part of your weekly spelling tests, these are all words you must learn by the end of Year 5 - get practicing!

This term's topic is...

Ancient Greece



Homework is set on Fridays and due in on the following Wednesday.  You will usually be given one piece of homework per week.


Spellings are tested on Mondays.

Times Tables and Mental Maths tests take place on Fridays.

Reading at home is very important, not only for fluency but also to develop vocabulary. Please read at least three times a week!


We encourage children to seek help from adults at home to support them with their homework, including spellings and times tables.  This greatly benefits the children and makes it much more enjoyable for them!  Thank you for your support.

Class surgery

I will be available on the first Tuesday of each month from 3.30 until 5pm if you have any queries or questions. Please feel free to pop in during this time!
