Spellings will be given out each Friday for the children to learn over the weekend for a test on the following Friday. We are grateful for any times you can spend helping your child learn their spelling words.
Mental maths tests will be conducted once a week. If parents can continue practicing times tables and addition and subtraction calculations with their child, it would be appreciated.
Maths and Literacy homework will be given on Friday to be returned no later than Wednesday. Any children who do not return their homework on time will ‘catch up’ on Friday afternoon at the beginning of ‘Golden Time’ Please ensure you child completes and returns this homework promptly to help their learning.
PE will be on Monday afternoon, Children will be expected to have their full school PE kits (red shorts, white t shirt, grey or black, plain sweat-pants, training shoes). It is advised that PE kits come in on a Monday and are left for the duration of the week as other opportunities for sport may arise.
Swimming classes are held on Monday afternoons however the sessions are shared across upper KS2 so children will be informed which weeks they will attend.

Welcome to Years 5’s Autumn Term blog. This term our topic has been Earth and Space and we have been on an adventure through the universe to understand scientific concepts. Part of this journey involved us recreating the solar system in our classrooms, which enables us to visualize how planets and moons orbit the sun. We have also become acquainted with the famous Neil Armstrong through our biographical research, writing and interviewing skills.
