Your Class Councillor is Eeshana Amit Naik

Vice Class Councillor is Lily Speake

Sports Councillors are Carol-Ann Rogerson and Ky Bratherton



Year 5 homework : a Mathletics certificate , at least 50-100 pages of reading each week and five weekly spellings.

Spellings, vocabulary and ideas for writing will all be improved if children can meet the Government recommendation of one reading book per week.

Please make sure that your child reads for at least 30 mins five evenings each week and makes a note of it in their reading journal, either at home or in school in the morning.  Also, it would be great if you had some time to discuss and share the book with your child.  We are really trying to promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure.  A record will be kept of the reading completed by your child and rewards can be earned.

Check out the files under 'File Manager' for recommended books and authors
