Information for Parents
I would just like to take this opportunity to say welcome to the Leopards class page. Please keep popping back to see us here as we will upload photographs of our learning as well as important weekly information such as spellings and times tables.
are Wednesday and Friday. Please remember to have your kit in school at all times. The school policy states that all jewellery should be removed, this includes earrings, plasters are not allowed. Due to marks being left on the hall floor we are also asking that children wear pumps inside now. They are most welcome to bring trainers for outdoor activities, as well as leggings and a school hoody too.
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.
Pupils will receive spelling, multiplication and reading homework weekly. This will be given out on a Friday. Children are expected to practice at home, return the homework book and have their reading diary signed at least four times a week. These basic skills are imperative to your child's education and practicing at home regularly makes a huge difference. I will be trailing using the seesaw platform for homework this year. There will be more information on this shortly.
Thank you for your support!

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