Year 5: Important Information     

Reading & Homework


It is vitally important that your child reads at home as well as at school.

The expectations are that your child reads every day at home. In Year 5, Reading books can be handed in on any day to be changed, but they MUST be  brought into school every day along with their reading records as staff will also be reading with school staff through the day. If possible, these books need to have been signed by an adult each time your child has read.


Children will be given a list of spellings to learn and a times table sheet to help them practice every Monday. These do not need to be returned to school. There will be a spelling and times table quiz on Friday. Your child may also bring home resources linked to their success in the SATs test towards end of the year.

PE Kit

Please make sure your child has the appropriate PE kit. This includes plain jogging bottoms or shorts, a plain t-shirt or long sleeved top and trainers or pumps. Remember that P.E lessons are done both indoors and outdoors, therefore suitable outdoor trainers will be required. 

PE in Year 5 will take place on Tuesday and Thursday

Children should come to school wearing their usual uniform and change into P.E. kit before the lesson. 


Year 6 is the second of our residential years. Children get the opportunity to attend a residential trip to the Robinwood Activity Centre, Todmorden. Although there is a charge for this we encourage all our children to go on this amazing trip. 

Initial contact will be during Year 5 so that we can provide at much time as possible to prepare for the trip.


Please provide your child with a water bottle, so that they may stay hydrated through the day. Please ensure that you send only water in with your child and not juice or carbonated drinks.
