PE kits should be in school at all times. Children will take them home at half term to be washed and ready for the next half term. The kit should include: a white t-shirt, royal blue shorts and black PE pumps. Plain black or navy jogging bottoms can be worn in the winter.
PE kits can be purchased online by following this link: https://ais.ace-online.co.uk/catalogue
Please make sure that your child takes off any jewellery before coming into school. If your child is unable to participate in PE, please send them in with a note.
PE lessons take place on:
5F- Thursday PM
5H- Friday PM (Miss Hinton)
5Y- Monday PM
Our guided reading session will take place on Tuesday afternoons. Children will need to bring their reading records to school every Tuesday so that their teacher can sign their reading record and check on the frequency of reading outside of school. Please encourage your child to read a variety of genres as this will help broaden their vocabulary and inspire reading for pleasure.
Children will be tested on their spellings every Friday morning.
At the start of every half term, a spelling list will be sent home with your child. Please ensure that your child learns their spellings and are tested on them at home where possible. We have included the definitions for each word to help our children understand the word and be able to use them in context within their own writing.
If your child misplaces their spellings, you can download another copy from below or speak to your class teacher who will give you another hard copy.
(All logins are glued into your child’s reading record.)
Maths: We will be encouraging children to use Times Table Rock Stars, where battles will be set on a Friday through to the following Friday.
English/Maths/Topic: A task will be alternated and set each week, using either Purple Mash or Education City. Check the 2dos or homework sections to find out what you need to do.
Some additional homework may be asked for throughout the term, which will support in class work.
Reading: Please encourage your child to read daily and listen to them at least once a week and sign their reading record. Every Tuesday, the class teacher will sign their reading diaries, so please ensure they bring them in to school on this day.
