Our Golden Reward Children So Far Are ...




Our class novel this half term is ...  

Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse by Chris Riddell


Y5 HT5 Homework

Topic/Maths/English- will be sent home at the beginning of each half term, please complete each task in any order and return at least 1 completed task each week on a Friday.

Spellings-  we will be looking at the year 5/6 word list and will be randomly selecting them from the list to test each week.

Reading- every day for at least 15 mins with an adult.


Reading Books

Due to COVID 19 guidance we have to allow the books 72 hours to quarantine before giving new books out. Please only return your child’s book bag on a Friday! 

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal.  For every three reads that the children complete and log with an adult, they shall receive a golden ticket to be entered for a prize draw at the end of the half term.

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.



Don't forget to bring your flute to school every Tuesday!


PE days for Year 5

PE will be on a Tuesday and a Friday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on those days

PE Kit =  black pumps, white T-shirt or school T-shirt and black shorts. 

Remember earrings cannot be worn for PE
