Essential Information

Reading is essential to your child's continued development and so we encourage you to listen to your child read at least 4 times each week. Contact books are provided for you to jot down when you have spent time listening to and discussing the story with your child. One house point will be award each time your child reads, up to a maximum of 7 per week.


Homework will be given out on a Monday and should be completed and handed in by the following Monday. Your support with homework is greatly appreciated but do please let us know if there are any problems.

It is very important for your child to have a water bottle with them in school. Please make sure it is ONLY water that is being sent into school in a clearly labelled bottle (name and class number). A healthy snack for break time is also welcomed. 


Finally, the Year 5 PE day is Friday. Please send your child into school on this day in their PE kit. A sweatshirt may also be worn as the weather turns colder.
