Reading

While most children now are independent readers, reading at home is still crucial. Children should read for 15 minutes each night - this can be either their home reader of a book of their own choice. This will be more productive if it is carried out in a calm, quiet environment. Both parents/carers and pupils are encouraged to sign the planners to acknowledge this. The children are also encouraged to use the school library and bring books home that they enjoy. The pupils will be heard reading independently at least once a fortnight by Mr Jacot with further reading support given throughout the week.

 

PE

PE lessons take place on a Thursday afternoon every week. All children are expected to take part in a full PE kit and trainers/pumps. Earrings can be won at school but, for health and safety reasons, they are not allowed during PE.

 

—What can you do at home….

  • First and foremost, please support and reassure your child that there isn’t any work in year 5 that we would want them to worry over and they should always just try their best. Praise and encourage!
  • Ensure your child has the best possible attendance at school – arriving promptly at school equipped and ready for learning.
  • Support your child with any homework tasks, including completing any unfinished classwork.
  • Reading, spelling and arithmetic (e.g. times tables) are always good to practise.
  • Talk to your child about what they have learnt at school and what book(s) they are reading (the character, the plot, their opinion).
  • Make sure your child sleeps well and has a healthy breakfast, a morning snack and a water bottle.
