This will only be worn Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Appropriate school shoes are to be worn.
P.E. takes place on a Monday and Thursday. PE kits should be worn on that day to school – no bags to be brought in. P.E. kits consist of black shorts/tracksuit, white T-shirt and trainers. A black hoodie/jumper is also recommended.
Children will be given a weekly planner, which will form as another method of seeing how your child is doing in school. All homework (with due dates) and events will be added to their planner. CGP Books will be used for homework and page numbers will also be added to the planners. Please ensure children take care of these planners.
Children will be assessed as soon as possible and given their reading books. Children are expected to read every night and for extended periods of time, choosing a wide variety of text types from school and home. Please encourage your child to discuss the book orally, as reading activities will be completed in school. Page numbers read are required in their planners, ready to record back in the classroom the following day.
Children will be using a spelling scheme following the national curriculum recommended word list for Year 5 and 6. Initially children will be given 10 spellings, however these will be reduced if needed. Spelling tests will take place on Mondays. The spelling list will be glued into their planners. All children will have access to these spellings. Separate interventions will cover any gaps in children’s spellings.
