Homework

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 Wednesday please. In addition pupils are expected to change their reading book and read regularly at home.  We will set project-based homework, which can be achieved over a 3 or 4 week period (more information to follow on this).

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