Key Information




  • Children are expected to be reading for at least 10 minutes every night. This can be signed off in your child's planner to show us the hard work they have been putting in at home!



  • Times Tables are set online every Friday to be completed for the following Tuesday morning - these are part of the children's homework and must be completed.
  • Children have been sent home with a MyMaths login - homework on here will be set every Friday for the following Friday. 


CGP books

  • Section 1: Word Types to be completed by Friday 10th November.
  • The books are to be brought in for class teachers to look at.


  • Any work done at home can be signed off in your child's planner as we love to see the hard work that they are putting in at home! You can do this simply by jotting a quick note and signing this



  • Planners should be brought into school everyday - these are a method of communication between yourself and your child's class teacher. They can also be used to write down when your child has been reading or doing homework with you.
  • If your child has been working on something incredibly hard at home, we would also like to know so that this can be acknowledged and praised at school!



  • Spellings will be sent home with your child every week. Please ensure that your child is practising these, ready to be tested on a Thursday. 


Times Tables

  • In Year 5 we are following the Rock Star Times Tables scheme. Please ensure that your child is continuing to practise these.
  • Times Tables are a vital skill and one of the foundations of all our other Maths work. It is important that children are able to answer mixed times tables questions quickly and fluently. Practising at home by reciting them aloud and by quick fire questioning is incredibly helpful.


PE Kit

  • Our PE time is a Tuesday morning. Please ensure that your children are in school coloured PE kit (Blue or Red).
