Children must bring a pencil case to school with stationery for them to use in lessons. They need 2 blue ink pens, an HB pencil, rubber, ruler, sharpener, glue stick, colour pencils, felt pens and scissors.


Please ensure your child has their trainers in school every day so they can run the Daily Mile – we are encouraging Year 5 to improve their fitness, and the time taken to complete their laps. 

Outdoor P.E. is on Tuesday. Please can your child come to school in their P.E. kit.

Indoor PE is on  a Thursday. Please can your child come to school in their Barley Hill P.E. kit.


Homework will be handed out on Fridays and is due in the following Thursday. If your child would like to, they may attend Homework Club on Tuesday lunchtimes. Please note, if homework is not completed, this will mean that Thursday lunchtime they will spend inside completing this, so please encourage your child to go to Homework Club on Tuesdays! 

Purple Mash and Times Table Rock Star logins will be stuck in the front of Homework books.

Please ensure your child is reading at least 3 times per week at home. Your child will need at least one parental signature in their reading diaries per week, while we do insist on reading at least 3 times. A child who reads three times per week will then add a tick to the class’s Read to Succeed chart; once we reach 200 ticks, the class will receive a class reward.

Please follow the link below for guidance on books to read in Year 5. Year 5 will visit the school library on Friday morning. Please also remember that library trips are a great opportunity for your child to broaden their literary range, so if you have not yet joined the library, please consider doing so!

Please use these links for quality book recommendations.
