Hello Year 5,


I hope you are all keeping well and happy and enjoying completing all the different activities.  I have enjoyed seeing the different activities you have been completing so please keep posting them on Twitter.

Above is your new grid for over Easter.  It is an important time of the year and we need to think about the true meaning of Holy Week.  I am looking forward to seeing what you to do to help you remember this.

You can still complete the activities from previous grids here:

Homework - this is extremely important if children are going to reach their potential. 

Maths is given out every Monday and expected back in on Thursday morning.  This will then be marked together in class on Friday

English is given out on Tuesday and expected back in on Friday morning. 

Spellings will be sent home on Thursday and there will be a spelling test the following Thursday.

  **Booster classes are always available for homework help - just ask and bring your homework book!**

Please check and sign all homework to say that you are happy with the standard that it has been completed to. 

Reading Books - reading is vital to support progress in all curriculum areas.  Children must read at home daily,  bring their books back in on time and read a range of materials from novels, comics, newspapers and fictional texts.  It is important that reading records and books are in school every day and signed prior to being changed.


P.E - P.E in school will take place on a Monday afternoon and a Friday morning.  Children should have both their indoor and outdoor kits in school.  Please make sure that they have all the necessary kit in school ready for these sessions. 


Please check our school's Twitter feed to see what we have been up to.  


Thank you for your help and support over the coming year,

Mrs Gray, Mrs Price and Mrs Cooper.
