Curriculum Headlines

PE this term is on a Tuesday (indoor) and a Friday with Sam (outdoor). 

Forest school will be once per half term. (Dates to be confirmed) 

It is our intention to run a Year 5 production the week before Easter, Covid restrictions dependent. 

Homework is set weekly. Please see the Homework page for details.

This term, your child will be bringing home their Accelerated Reading book to read each evening. It is essential they bring their book back into school with them each day, as we use the books during their Reciprocal Reading session as well as during independent reading time after lunch or reading 1:1 with an adult. Please continue to sign their books for them after reading at home and ensure the book and Reading Record book are returned to school each day. Many thanks. 


       Towards the end of Spring 2 term, a meeting will be organised to finalise details for our exciting Year 5 residential trip to Condover Hall straight after Easter. 

As always, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Mrs Atkinson via the office or catch us in the playground, if you have any concerns. 

Let's hope we have as 'normal' an academic term as possible. 


Helpful Website Links    

Here is a comprehensive list of on-line resources we feel are excellent to use at home.

Your child is familiar with using Education City in school, which is an absolutely fantastic website for English, Maths and Science, which school subscribes to each year. It requires an individual username and password (which your child knows & uses in school). Click here to log in.

TT Rockstars is the tool we have invested in to help children learn their times tables in a fun and modern way.  Your child has their own personalised login.  Click here to access the website.
