Year 5 & 6 pupils have Sports Day which clashes with the PTFA non-uniform day and collection for the Bottle Tombola.

Year 5 & 6 children may wear sports clothes of their choice on Friday 7th July.


Homework books

Please remind your child that they should be marking their home learning in their maths and grammar books each week. We are finding that an increasing number of children are not doing this..



Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be  tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.
  • In order to prepare pupils for high school, our older pupils will continue to to have homework set for Maths and Grammar from the CPG skills workbooks.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.

Creative Home Learning

The creative home learning for this half term is based around our new learning challenge topic were the Anglo Saxons really smashing?

Learning this week


Children have been writing a set of instructions on how to kill a mythical creature. They have also learnt some grammar skills which can help improve their instructions as well creating their own rubric to help with their first drafts


This week in Maths, we have been working on imperial measurements. Children have had some background information on imperial measurements and where they are used in todays society. Also, they have had a chance to apply their skills in word problems.



Learning Next Week

Next week in English, we will finishing our set of instructions to kill a mythical creature as well as being introduced to a new book "Monsterology". Children will have an opportunity to look at the book in their GR sessions so they have a close look at all of the intricate details.


Next week in Maths, we will be preparing the children for their last progress test in year 5. We will be recapping skills that we have covered throughout the year.
