Our expectations on home-learning are:
Each week there will be a spelling focus this will encourage children to understand how to apply patterns, strategies and knowledge to other words and not just a list of words given for that week. Please support them with this at home. Children have Mathletics and Times Table Rockstar logins and should be accessing these regularly. If your child cannot access these at home please inform your child’s teacher. The year 5 ‘Padlet’ will be updated regularly throughout the term.

Children can wear their PE kit to school on Thursday.
