Whales will be visiting Racquets for squash sessions (until 22nd February) 

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

Reading:

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.
