Reading Books
All children have a reading book and a reading record diary that they are asked to take home and share with parents and carers. When they have read their book, children are able to change them when they arrive at school each morning. Please sign your name and feel free to write any comment each time you listen to your child read, and also when they have completed their book. Please try and listen to your child read daily at home.

Home Learning

Maths and English home learning is handed out every Friday and needs to be handed back in to the class teacher on the following Friday; Spellings are set on Friday and are due back the following Friday when the children will be tested on them.

As part of home learning, Year 5 are expected to complete activities and challenges via the Times Tables Rock Stars and Reading Eggs websites. One Reading Egg challenge must be completed per month and Times Tables Rock Stars challenges weekly.


Home Learning if your child is well but isolating:

Children can use the National Oak Academy daily lessons:


They can use Times Tables Rockstars for additional learning.



Our PE days are MONDAY and FRIDAY. Children can now come to school wearing their PE kit for the day on PE days. Selected children will be swimming on Friday, or taking part in outdoor PE with Mr Bawn. The children, and parents, will be told in advance the arrangements for swimming. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for this.  No jewellery is permitted.  Click on the link below to find out more information about our uniform.



Music with Kingston Music Service (KMS)

This year, the children will be learning how to play the ukulele, delivered weekly by KMS. Ukuleles will be provided by the school. Children may be asked to take ukuleles home in order to practice material learnt in class. These MUST be returned to school every Tuesday ready for their ukulele lessons.  


Medium Term Plans

Year 5 had a fun first day back completing the legendary 'Egg Drop'. On their tables, the children had to work in teams to ensure they created a design which went around their group egg. Their design was then put to the test, with each team having their egg dropped from a height of 3 metres and each team had to see if their egg cracked or survived! Each team showed great teamwork and creativity during the activity!

WWII Artefact Day! Year 5 had a fantastic time looking at real artefacts from WWII, taking about their uses.

Harvest Assembly! Year 5 performed a wonderful harvest assembly to the rest of the school with some lovely messages included!

Year 5 showed great innovation and questioning skills hot seating each other as 'castaways' during our drama lesson.

Year 5 and 6 welcomed Father Michael into UKS2 for a Mass and wonderful discussion about our previous topics; Life Choices and Vocation.

Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic visit from the RNLI, talking and discussing key issues about water safety.

The Cornerstones Easter Experience! Year 5 watched the Easter story take place in front of their eyes with the help of the Cornerstones Church, finding out about Peter's story, the Roman views and Mary at the tomb.

Year 5 enjoyed their visit to Kingston library and picked some fantastic books to take back to school.
