P.E. Days – Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child comes with a full P.E kit on both days, for indoor and outdoor P.E. This half term we will be learning dance and sports
hall athletic skills, both PE lessons will be timetables for the hall.

Spelling – We are continuing to follow the RWI spelling scheme. Please look in your child’s Spelling Log to see the spelling rule for the week. Your child will be tested on their weekly spellings every Monday, after we have completed our weekly spelling lessons. Please make sure that your child’s Spelling Log is in school every Monday.
This terms spelling rules are:
- Silent ‘b’ – e.g. lamb, thumb, comb, debt
- ‘-ible’ endings – e.g. terrible, edible, visible, legible
- ‘-able’ endings – e.g. understandable, reliable, adorable, enjoyable
- Silent ‘t’ – fasten, glisten, rustle, whistle
Times Tables – By year 5 all the times tables are expected to be known by heart up to 12 x 12, although it is extremely beneficial that children continue to practice their multiplication tables because in year 5 we rely heavily on this knowledge to support other areas of our mathematical learning.
Reading – All reading diaries will need to be present in school every day. As a school we are continuing with our ‘Reading Race Track’. Children will have the opportunity to choose a book from our extensive classroom library that they would like to read. Please record any readings that they do at home in their reading diaries, even if it is not reading a school book. Examples of your child reading could be; an instruction manual for a game, a favourite magazine, a recipe for baking etc.
