PE Lessons

PE lessons are Tuesday and Friday. Please remember to have your kit in school at all times. The following items are expected:

Indoor kit

  • Purple t-shirt
  • black shorts
  • black pumps

Outdoor kit

  • purple t-shirt
  • black shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms
  • purple or black sweatshirt
  • trainers suitable for exercise and use on the playground as well as on grass


The school policy states that all jewellery should be removed. Plasters are not allowed to cover earrings, they must be removed. Religious symbols are also not allowed to be worn during PE lessons for health and safety reasons.


Water Bottles

Individual water bottles should be brought to school and taken home daily for cleaning and refilling.  It is scientifically proven that children and adults function better when hydrated, enabling great learning. School cannot supply single use plastic cups to children without water bottles, please ensure your child brings this daily.


Thank you for your support!

Homework Information


The pupils will be given 3 pieces of homework per week.

1. Reading: This is the most important skill that your child can learn. Reading fluently and for enjoyment opens many doors both in their childhood and adult lives. Pupils should bring their reading book to school and home again everyday. They are expected to read a minimum of 4 times a week for 20 minutes. Ideally this would be daily, however I realise this is not always possible. Pupils who do not reach this target of 4 times a week will be asked to catch this time up during school. 

2. Multiplication facts practice: Each pupil has been provided with a login to the TTRocks website. This is a fun way to practice multiplication facts. This should also be done regularly to increase fluency and speed of recall for each of the facts. The curriculum expectation at Y5 is that pupils will be able to instantly recall all multiplication and related division facts to 12x12. This week we are practising the x12 multiplication facts.

3. Spellings: The pupils will bring home a sheet each Friday. This is also available below. This should be returned each Friday completed. This can either be by bringing the sheet to school or by uploading a photograph to the pupils seesaw account. Spelling tests will take place each Friday morning. Children who have brought their homework and / or gained a green score in their test will gain dojo points. Those pupils who do not bring in their homework and do not gain a green score will need further practice during a Friday playtime.

Y5 pupils should aim to know their times table facts with instant recall. For the rest of Y5 we will be completing a mixed set of multiplication facts. An example sheet is below.

Example multiplication sheet. The pupils have 3 minutes to complete as many as they can.
