After School Clubs:

Various after school clubs will be available throughout the year, sometimes being offered to select groups at a time. If your child is attending a club that requires PE kit, then they may come to school dressed in their kit. As long as this follows the PE kit dress code.


Reading books:

Children will be able to take home 2 reading books this year. One from the School Library and one from the Y5 Class Library. Y5 books can be changed in class at anytime and should be taken home to read. The School Library book can be changed on each classes' chosen day. 

Children should read at home at least 3 times a week. Either to an adult or independently. This information should be written in their reading record, which should be brought into school every Friday.



The children receive their spellings every Friday and take these home to learn. They will then be tested on the following Friday before being issued their new spelling list. 


Year 5 Non-Negotiables 

  • The correct uniform and footwear should be worn at all times. 
  • Weekly spellings will be given out on a Friday, which they will need to practice for their test the following week.
  • The expectation will be that children read at least 3 times a week at home and record this in their reading journal. This can be done independently as well as with an adult / older sibling.  
  • Children should know their times tables up to 12 x 12 and be able to recall these facts at a rapid pace.
