Science - the children will be investigating Sound.

Spanish - the  pupils will learn a selection of the key phonemes to facilitate accurate and authentic pronunciation as part of their language learning experience.

What is happening when? 

What to bring: Each day, book bags should be brought to school with your homework diary, reading book and water bottle. Please ensure to bring a coat every day.

Spellings: Year 5 will be tested on their spellings every Friday. A spelling list will be sent out at the start of every half term. The children will have weekly spellings and different spelling rules to practise so the children can develop their spelling which will support their reading and writing.

Reading Books: Year 5 will choose a book which they would like to read and this will be their reading book for both home and school. It is important that this book comes into school every day. Please ensure children have noted in their homework diaries when they have read at home.

Brain Builders: Brain builder homework will be sent out in the first week of half term and we ask that these are returned in the last week of half term. Brain builder work will include a menu of activities linked to the different subject areas we are covering in school.

PE:  Year 5 will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will continue to come in their PE kit for the entire day. Please ensure children are not wearing earrings on these days. If they cannot remove them, they won’t be able to take part in the lessons. On PE days, children should come to school in a plain white t-shirt, plain dark coloured joggers or shorts, plain dark coloured jumper (not school jumper), trainers or pumps. On Fridays, they will go swimming in the afternoon to Settle Pool.


Please always feel free to come and see us before or after school should you need to discuss anything. Alternatively, you can email or call the office and your message will be passed on.
