Welcome to Year 5
As of Monday 13th June, Years 1 - 6 dismissal time is 3:30pm.
What You Will Need in Year 5
Reading Books: Your child will need to bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. You are encouraged to read with your child every day and to sign their reading record.
Homework: Children are set weekly online maths and English homework. They are also expected to visit the Times Tables Rock Stars website daily in order to practise their times tables. Children arriving in year 5 are expected to know all of their times tables from 2 - 12. It is important that children continue to practise their times tables on a daily basis in order to maintain this knowledge.

Spellings: New spellings are given every Monday to take home and practise throughout the week. After they have covered the rules and definitions during lessons, children will then take home their homework books on a Thursday to write well structured sentences which include their new spellings. They must return their completed sentences the following Monday.
Swimming: This term year 5 children will be attending swimming lessons at Swinton and Pendlebury Leisure Centre. Lessons will take place on a Friday so please ensure your child brings their swimming kit (swimming costume/trunks, swimming cap and towel) on this day. Please note, boys are not allowed to wear baggy swimming shorts - trunks only please.
Library Day: The children have the opportunity to borrow a book from the school library. Year 5's library day is Thursday. Please note there is a £7 fee for lost library books.
Water Bottles: Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day. It may only contain water - no fruit juice or cordial please.
