PE and Swimming

Our P.E days are: Thursday (Indoor)  and Fridays (outdoor).

All children in Year 5 will be going swimming, this is a National Curriculum requirement, our sessions will be on Tuesdays and further details will be sent out when we receive the dates of our sessions.


We use Jigsaw curriculum.

Reading Expectations

All children in Year 5 should be reading at home 3 times a week as a minimum. Children are rewarded for their home reading by moving up the in-class chart and can win prizes for doing lots of home reading.

In Y6 we expect children to read at home 5 times a week with this being recorded and commented on in reading journals by adults. An adult at school will also read with your child regularly. Your children should be practicing reading out loud and in their heads and it would be great if you could sometimes ask them questions about what you have heard them read. They should develop a fluency in reading to be able to read 120 words per minute.
