Spring Term 2024


Outdoor PE is on a Wednesday and indoor PE is on a Friday.

Year 5 are expected to read at least 5 times a week. Reading records are checked by a member of staff in Oak Class every Friday to tally points. Reading at least 5 times a week means that you will get a raffle ticket towards the class jar for a chance to win a book from the vending machine!

Please remember to bring your water bottle and a healthy snack for break time with you to school every day.

Homework is uploaded onto DB Primary every Friday and needs to be completed by the following Thursday.

Please log on to TTRockstars to practise your times tables daily.
