News and Reminders


The most important work that needs to be done at home is regular reading (preferably every night). Children must bring their books and reading records into school daily, changing them when finished. Don't forget to write in your child's reading record so that we know that they have finished their book. Remember, also, that each day your child reads at home an adult's signature will earn a raffle ticket for our weekly book prize.

Lexia: The designated levels for Year 5 are 15 and 16. Your child can complete tasks at home with their own login details (see link below). Please see your teacher if you have lost your login details.

Times Tables:  A crucial skill for everyday maths is the quick recall of table facts up to 12 x 12. Keep practising! Times Tables Rock Stars is a great website for this!

Mathletics is set weekly. We encourage the children to complete these activities at home. Please let your class teacher know if you cannot access Mathletics and we will make provisions in School. Your teacher can give you a copy of your login details if you have lost them.

Reading Eggs can be worked through at the children's own pace, your child should have their log ins and passwords memorised or saved.

On Tuesday afternoons throughout the term children will be taking part in lessons delivered by Luke, our Sports Plus coach. Could you please ensure that your child has a labeled P.E kit (including names written on the inside of P.E pumps) at all times. This can be taken home at half term to be laundered.

Children will have an extra PE session at another point during the week. 

Please include joggers during the winter months.
