  1. Becoming more resilient by taking risks with our learning – both inside and outside the classroom (e.g. through drama or school trips). 
  2. Reflecting on our work and learning from our mistakes (FAIL = First Attempt In Learning!). 
  3. Improving our handwriting and presentation.

The expectation in Year 5 is that pupils read for 10 - 15 minutes, 5 times per week. Please record the book and page number in your child’s home reading record. Finished books will need to be handed in on a Friday to be changed the following Monday. 

Spellings: Spellings will be given on a Friday and will be tested the following Friday.


Homework: This will be issued on a Friday and returned the following Thursday. Please encourage your child to check the basics carefully (neat handwriting, capital letters, full stops) and to take pride in their presentation.


PE: Oak Tree Class have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday. On these days, children will need to come to school in their PE kits (including suitable footwear) and will stay in their kits all day. They may also wear a school jumper or Rufford Park hoodie. Please ensure your child has removed earrings/jewellery before school or can do so independently before PE lessons.
