Online Safety Activities 1

Online Safety Activities 2


Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school at all times. It is expected that all items are named and kept in a clearly named bag.

The children will need their swimming kits every Wednesday.


Our class visits the library on a Friday so please make sure books are brought back to be changed.


The children will be given spellings to learn every Monday and will be tested on them the following Friday. Please support your child in learning their spellings through the week.

A homework grid relating to the topic being covered will be sent  home at the beginning of each half term. The children are expected to research and produce answers to at least 2 of the questions. They can answer the questions with as much creativity as they wish. They will be expected to share their work with the rest of the class.


Please follow the link to see an overview of what the children are learning:

Year 5 have been worked hard in the Autumn term. They especially enjoyed the work done for the trip to the Cow and Calf in Ilkley.

We had a great trip to the Science and Media museum as part of our work on Space.

Year 5 have had a busy start to this year. Art classes with Tony Bullock and practical lessons in maths and baking biscuits for the Mc Millan Coffee morning.
