It is important that you read to someone at least 3 times per week but everyday if possible. You or an adult can record when you have read in your Reading Journal. Each time you read, you will receive a tick on your reading chart. When your chart is full up, you will receive a certificate in assembly. Once you complete your platinum award, you will get to choose a book to keep and take home.



Your PE kit should be in school every day as our sessions may change or may take place as part of a cross curricular lesson. However, year 5 have a PE slot which is every Friday. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days, otherwise you will not be able to join in with P.E if you have earrings in.


Please ensure that you wear you’re the correct school uniform every day.


Work hard and have fun learning!
