TIMETABLE

Daily – Children need to bring a named water bottle into school every day. Children are able to access outside learning regularly so it is important that they always come to school with a hooded coat. During the summer children should also have a named sunhat.

PE – Hazel and Rowan have PE on Monday. Hawthorn and Rowan have PE on Wednesday. Please ensure PE kits are clearly named.

Swimming – Monday AM. Hawthorn and half of Rowan class will have lessons from 9th September to 18th November. Hazel and half of Rowan class will have lessons from 25th November to 14th February.

HOMEWORK

In Year 5, homework will be sent home on a Monday. Children will be given up to 3 pieces . To encourage independence, children will use a homework diary instead of receiving a weekly letter.

Reading: Please encourage your child to read a variety of texts. It is important that children are reading regularly to develop fluency as children are expected to read increasingly longer texts with greater speed.

Please follow this link to access parent information about end of year non-negotiables for English and Mathematics. Any support that you can give to your child to achieve these targets will be extremely valuable.
