  • Stationery - You will need a small pencil case with 2 pencils, 2 black handwriting pens, 2 whiteboard pens & a small ruler.  This will need to stay in school.
  • No bags to be brought in for the time being.
  • Packed lunches only for the time being.
  • Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce - this is the reading book I was showing you and if you'd like to start reading this, then that would be great as we will be basing many of our English lessons on this which links in with our first topic, Earth & Space.
  • Please note new start & end times to UKS2 day - 08:40 start and 3;10 finish.

Thank you all for joining today and I hope you have a wonderful summer holiday!  See you soon!

In year 5, pupils are expected to complete weekly homework. Homework will be set every Wednesday in Spelling Homework books and this is due in the following Monday please. In addition pupils are expected to change their reading book and read regularly at home. 

PE is every Wednesday and Thursday.  Please ensure your child has labelled PE kit in school.  In KS2 we prefer children to wear trainers rather than plimsolls as they give better support.
