The children not in Spanish have a varied week that involves activities such as Spanish dancing, a Spanish breakfast,  kayaking and archery.

Your child must have the following items in order to do P.E.:

Homework and Spellings

Each night, Year 5 students are expected to read at home. They will come home with 2 books. A reading book for fun and a 'take home book' which comes with a guidance bookmark for parents consisting of comprehension questions. We would appreciate it if you could sign the reading diary weekly.

Weekly Homework
On Thursdays, we will give out one piece of SpaG homework for the children to complete independently. To ensure the children can do this, it will usually be something that we are learning in class. This is due in on a Thursday unless otherwise stated.

We will also set a task on My Maths to be completed for Thursday.

Times Tables Rock Stars
We complete a weekly times table test which requires children to know up to 12 x tables and their division facts with a quick pace. Your child can practice on Times Table Rock Stars using the website or the app.

Homework club is available on a Thursday and a Friday lunch time if children are unable to complete their homework at home.

If your child struggles to complete their homework alone, please let your class teacher know as this can be worked on further at school.

Many thanks!
