If your child is not secure with their tables TT Rock Stars will be their maths homework.

Mondays and Wednesdays
Please wear PE kit to school on these days.
The children will be exposed to a range of quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts in class. They need to read as often and as widely as possible at home.
Recommended reading lists for year 5:
Our class saint is St Vincent de Paul We will learn about his life and how we can be like him.
There will be parents’ evenings in the Autumn and Spring terms. In the Summer term, parents will receive a written report.
The children can collect house points for effort, work and behaviour. Each half term, the house with the most house points will have a non-uniform day.
On your child’s birthday, we ask that they do not bring sweets for their friends, but if they would like to donate a book to the class for the book corner instead, then it would be greatly appreciated. They can also come to school in their own clothes on their birthday, or on the nearest school day if their birthday falls at the weekend.
Many thanks for your support
Miss Ray and Mrs Rafferty
