The children can bring a bookbag to school to put their homework, snack, reading diary and reading book in. NO RUCKSACKS PLEASE

If children want to bring a water bottle to school it must be named and only contain water. It will come home every night to be washed and refilled.

PE is on Wednesday. 

Homework in Year Five

The children will have home reading books, Spelling Log Books, times tables practise, English and My Maths homework on a weekly basis. Homework will be given out on a Monday and must be handed in on Friday. 

Spelling Logbooks will be taken home every evening for children to practise the words they are finding tricky. The Logbooks must be brought back into school each day.

101 Books to Read

SPRING 2: This half term we are continuing to read our class novel: Brightstorm. Brightstorm is one of the books from our '101 Books to Read Before You Leave Penketh Primary' and the children are loving it! It is the story of twins- Maudie and Arthur who are devastated by the news that their father, a daring explorer, has died in a failed attemt to reach South Polaris. But a mysterious clue leads the twins to question the story they've been told. To find the truth, they must undertake the journey of a lifetime! We will also use this text to inspire our writing: Non Chronological Reports, Character Portraits and Letters .
