Reading books can be changed every day if needed.  Books must be changed at least once a week to ensure progression through the reading scheme.

Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed by Wednesday of the following week (unless otherwise stated).  Each week there will usually be one piece of English and one piece of Maths.  All homework is to be completed in pencil or black handwriting pen (25p from school) and to the standard we expect in school.

New spellings will be given on a Friday.  These will be given on a Friday.  These will be written in their beige spelling books.  Please ensure your child brings this to school each Friday.  Spellings from the previous week will be tested on a Friday morning.

Even in Year 5 - you should aim to listen to your child read every day for at least 10 minutes.  See the Literacy page for some top tips!
