Our Weekly Routines

Home Reading: This will be central to your child’s progress this year. 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, which needs to be brought into school everyday.

Finished books need to be returned to school, where they will be reviewed and changed. 

Spellings: Pupils will be introduced to a weekly spelling pattern on a FridayThey will complete a range of activities throughout the week, in school, relating to this spelling pattern.

Homework: This will be issued on a Friday and returned the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to check the basics carefully (neat handwriting, capital letters, full stops) and to take pride in their presentation. It's also great if you can chat through their Maths homework too.


PE: Oak Tree Class have PE on a Thursday and Friday. 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 can cover their ear piercings/has removed ear piercings/jewellery before school or can do so independently before all PE lessons. This is for reasons of safety.
