Reading is a life long skill and in Year 5 it is a huge part of our day.  It is essential that your child reads their colour band reading book at least 3 times per week at home to help them develop their reading fluency and understanding.  Some home reading may be independent but please listen to your child read out loud regularly.  Having an audience really encourages children to practise their reading fluency and gives a purpose for their reading.

You must sign your child's reading record each time.

As part of their reading homework, each child will be expected to complete a weekly reading journal.  This is due every Wednesday.  This is to enable us to keep track of your child's reading and give them an opportunity to show their understanding of the book.  

As well as our school library collection, all our colour band books are available online at www.activelearnprimary.co.uk. Your child has a login for this and can access this from home.



Spellings will be given out each week and your child will have a test every Friday.  The children will also have a weekly spelling homework which is due every Friday.  To help your child improve their spelling ability, please practise them daily.  Your child can access their spellings and practise independently at https://spellingframe.co.uk/


Times Tables

Your child should know all their multiplication and division facts by the end of Year 4. Being able to use these facts is essential for all areas of maths.  Your child will have a times tables test every week.  To help them prepare, please practise with them or give them time to use: https://ttrockstars.com/.   



On Mondays, the children have a swimming lesson and will need their swimming kit every week.  Please make sure any jewellery is removed before they come to school.

In Year 5, the children will have a P.E. lesson every Wednesday.  You must provide your child with the correct PE kit. It is helpful if this is kept in school; all items must be named. Please make sure that, as the weather changes, you provide a plain zip up jacket or jumper for PE as we may take lessons outside. Please refer to the uniform policy  for more information.

Fruit Money

Fresh fruit is provided daily at play time for all children at a cost of £1 per week. We collect fruit money every Monday morning so please make sure that you keep up to date with this.  Please ensure the money is in an envelope or small sandwich bag with your child's name on it.
