Our Learning

See what we are learning about this term by reading our termly newsletter.


This term, Year 5 will spend some time with a specialist cricket coach during their PE lessons. For the first half term, both classes will have outdoor games on Wednesday afternoons and indoor PE on Friday afternoons.

Your child will need plain navy blue sports shorts (above the knee and no buckles), a plain white t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls. A plain blue navy blue tracksuit can be worn in colder weather. No items of denim or vests are allowed. We recommend PE kits are brought in on a Monday and kept in school for a week or two.

Home Learning

Thank you for your support with the children’s home learning so far, it really makes a difference!

There are lots of different ways you could support your child in their learning at home.  Here are just a few ways;

Reading: please continue to support your child to read daily for at least 20 minutes and keep a record of their reading their reading journal. The reading journals are checked weekly. Children should complete 1 journal activity each week, this will be collected in for marking on their allocated day.

Maths: maths homework will be set on a weekly basis via Mathletics.Children can log onto Mathletics via the following link:

  Mathletics: Student Log On

Please take every opportunity to help your child learn their times tables and associated division facts (knowing that 4x5=20 so 20 ÷ 4 = 5) as this will greatly improve their maths skills.

Encourage you child to have a go at the Maths challenge that is published in the Eliot Bank weekly and here.
