Red Kites – Year 5

Y5 Important Information


Reading is the key that unlocks many doors...I expect the children to read regularly and make a note of their books, and thoughts about them in their reading diaries. Books will be sent home on a THURSDAY and need to be returned to school the following MONDAY.


I will set English, Maths and Spelling homework every THURSDAY on Google Classroom. The English and Maths homework will need to be uploaded by TUESDAY EVENING, of the following week. I will test spellings every THURSDAY. If you are having any difficulties with Google Classroom please let me know I and I will do my best to help.


This half term we will be doing PE on WEDNESDAY  and SWIMMING on THURSDAY. The children will need to come to school in their PE kits every Wednesday and bring their swimming kits every Thursday.
