Swimming will be on a Friday afternoon and outdoor P.E. on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children have the correct kit for each day.



In Year 5 children will receive Maths and English homework weekly, as well as spellings and reading books. Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday.


Times Tables Rockstars

Each child has an account that they can access at home - there is also a 'Times tables Rockstars' app that you can download to your phone or tablet. It has been proven that those children who use these perform better in school and In tests.



Children should read for at least 10 minutes every night.  If you sign their diary when they have read with you, they can earn a sticker on the class Reading Leaderboard and earn prizes.


It is a school expectation that this homework is completed on time each week. If homework is not completed then children will have to complete their homework during playtimes and lunchtimes.



This term we are looking at ancient Greece.  This includes reading Greek myths and legends, making Greek vases out of clary and learning about the geography of Greece.  In PE we are practicing our athletics, and in PSE we are learning about voting and democracy.
