How to help at home: 


In Year 5, it is still essential that your child continues to read regularly at home (at least 3 times a week).  Please continue to support them with this by ensuring that they are reading high quality texts of the correct level, and by listening to them regularly and discussing what they have read.  We are busy working our way through our '50 Best Books' (https://www.booksfortopics.com/year-5).  We are trying to get through them all by the end of the year.


Please play Times Table Rockstars to consolidate knowledge and fluency of times tables and their related division facts.

Please read at least three times a week and sign their reading records. 


PE Kit and Uniform

Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school at all times, that it meets uniform expectations and that it fits! PE for Year 5 takes place on Wednesdays and Fridays. 

Particular points to remember are:pupils can wear their kit all day, PE kits should be plain (no football shirts, etc.); footwear is black daps/pumps or trainers; tights should not be worn under PE shorts; hair should be tied back; and earrings must be removed. St Mary’s considers our school uniform, which includes appropriate footwear, to be an important matter too. Please therefore ensure your child’s dress conforms with the requirements given on the school website. Remember, for example, that any hair accessories must be discrete and that nail varnish and jewellery (other than small ear studs) should not be worn.


Thank you for your continued support, 

Miss Harries & Mr Biddle
