Important information:
P.E.
Although P.E. is usually taught on a Wednesday and Thursday, we would like children to have their P.E kits in all week as we may do P.E. on other days.


Homework
Homework will be handed out on Friday and needs to be handed back in by the following Wednesday. Please come in and see a member of staff if your child needs any additional assistance with their homework.

If your child is absent on Friday, it is their responsibility to ask for a spare homework sheet before the due date (Wednesday).


Spellings
Spellings will also be given out on a Friday. Children will be tested on these spellings the following Friday. Whilst we do practise these spellings during the week, children will benefit from regular spelling practise at home.


Reading
Reading is a fundamental part of your child’s development. At St George’s, we encourage children to read as much as possible. We ask that children aim for five reads per week. Please record each read in your child’s reading record as we monitor these daily.


Water bottles
Please ensure your child has a clearly labelled water bottle with them each day.


Our Year 5 values are to:



  • Always give maximum effort.

  • Respect one another.

  • Welcome and pursue challenges.

  • Collaborate with others toward a shared goal.

  • Fulfil out-of-school commitments (reading & homework).

  • Develop a sense of maturity.

  • Seize every available opportunity to succeed.


Year Five will be vital in preparing you for your final year at St George’s.


Remember: Enjoy it, work hard and reap all the rewards!
