Our teacher is Ms Whitehouse and our teaching assistants is Mrs Jones and occasionally Mrs Bayliss will take the class. Mrs Stopford is our lunchtime supervisor.
On Tuesdays, the children will have swimming. They will be travelling by bus/coach until Easter. For this they will need swimming costume and a towel. The swimming instructors ask that boys wear trunks which do not go below the knee and girls wear a one piece swimming costume. No jewellery is allowed in the pool. The swimming instructors will not allow non swimmers to wear goggles and only allow those who can swim to wear goggles if they have a note from parents showing a medical need.
We have PE on Wednesdays. PE kit is white T Shirt and black or blue shorts. Children should wear trainers or pumps; hair should be tied back and ear rings taken out..

Water and Snacks
Please ensure you bring a water bottle to school every day. This should only contain water and not juice (Juice is allowed with a packed lunch to be drunk at lunch time). Children can bring in fruit or an appropriate healthy snack to eat at break time.
Reading and Homework
Please bring your reading books to school every day. All reading at home should be recorded in the child's reading record which is checked on most days. Children who do not get a chance to read at least twice a week at home will have the opportunity to do so on Friday break time.
. Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday. Time will be provided with an adult at lunchtime Wednesday and Thursday for children who struggle to complete homework at home.
Tables and Aritmatic
It is vital that children know their tables and number facts in order to complete Year 5 Maths, assistance will be given to those struggling but if they can work on this at home it will be invaluable. In School we practice our tables three times a week. On Fridays we do a an arithmetic and a times table test and papers will go home after the test - please practice the ones they have struggled with.
