Dear Parents/ carers,

It is incredibly important that the children are completing their homework.

Children should be completing:
Daily reading – this can be done online through Bug Club or using the school books which they can bring home.

Daily times tables/ spellings -. After Easter, weekly times table activities will resume in their homework books. Spellings will continue to be stuck into homework books.

Additional activity – this will be stuck into their homework books and will differ weekly.

As many children are losing their homework sheets, we will be asking them to stick everything in on a Monday when their book returns home.

Books will continue to be handed in on Friday and returned on a Monday after Easter.

Please can children bring their homework books in this Thursday so that Easter homework can be given to them.

Thank you for your support,

Year 5.

PE Days after Easter

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please be aware that our PE days are changing after the Easter holidays. We will now be having outdoor PE on Mondays and indoor PE on Tuesdays. Please ensure as always that your child attends school in the correct PE kit for those days.

Over the summer term, Year 5 will also be going swimming, however we will provide more information about exact start dates for this closer to the time.

Kind regards,


The Year 5 Team

Red Nose Day 19th March 2021

We will be supporting this charity by allowing children to come to school/ nursery wearing their PE kit along with something red. Please do not feel the pressure to buy something red; any splash of red will do!

Due to no cash donations allowed in school/ nursery, we have set up a Red Nose day donation page on Parentpay for you to donate. (Please note, this is not a page to buy a red nose)

Bug Club Reading

Please see the attached letter which details how to access Bug Club from home. The children have used this reading tool in school and should continue to use it at home to support their home reading (at least 3 times per week).

In short, children are able to read e-books at their level and earn coins towards personalising their homepage. Children earn coins by completing comprehension exercises which assess a range of reading skills.

Reading Diaries

Dear Parents and Carers,


Please remember that reading diaries are due in tomorrow so that we can still monitor how your child is reading at home. We will then quarantine them over the weekend and return them with your child on Monday.

Thank you,


The Year 5 Team
