Our Timetables for this term:





Routines and Expectations

Drop off and Pick up

In the mornings you drop your child at the school gate anytime between 8.35am and 8.55am. They make their own way into the classrooms via the patio doors. Year 5 have Early Morning Work and registration so we recommend an early drop off. Any child arriving after 9am is late. At the end of the day the gates are unlocked at 3.15pm, parents come into the playground and collect their children from the classroom patio doors. Learning time ends at 3.15pm, doors will open after this time.  

Daily Reading

Reading at home every day for at least 20-30 minutes is an absolute expectation in Year 5. The children can read with you, to you or with a sibling, the most important element is that you discuss the book with your child to check their comprehension. Please sign every day to show that you are reading with your child. Children need to bring their homework diaries into school daily. Diaries are checked every Monday but may be required on other days for messages home etc. 

PE days

Remember children come to school wearing their PE kit. PE days this term are:

5PA & 5ET - Wednesdays & Fridays
5SK & 5SC - Mondays & Wednesdays


Homework is set every Wednesday in children's purple homework books and it is always due in on the following Wednesday. The children also have other work which we encourage them to complete (a little every day).

  • Weekly spellings;
  • Bug Club reading;
  • Mathletics  - we expect children to do approximately 10 minutes every day;
  • Times Table Rock Stars - this is particularly essential for those children who need to improve their times table fluency;
