Children will participate in PE every week using the hall or outside facilities. Please ensure that children wear the correct clothing of black shorts/ black joggers, black t-shirt, suitable footwear and no jewellery. Children will have opportunities to attend sporting competitions throughout the year  and there is also an annual sports day in the summer term. There is also a range of free after school clubs available.



The National Curriculum states that all pupils should be able to swim unaided for 25 metres.

Children must have:

  • Swimming costume or non-baggy shorts
  • Swimming cap
  • Towel
  • Healthy snack

Each half term, Year 5 focus on a high quality book where they continue to learn the skills of fluency and comprehension.  This is also used as a stimulus to develop pupils' writing skills in the different styles.


Accelerated Reading continues and pupils regularly choose books from our school library or reading corners where they can read at school and at home. All pupils in Key Stage 2 are given a username and password to answer a quiz on completion of the book, in order to check their understanding.



Children are taught Maths knowledge, skills and understanding on a daily basis, using the White Rose Scheme of Work. This develops their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills. It is important that all children know their multiplication tables. All pupils have access to Times Tables Rock Stars to help them practice.



We support childrens' learning by going on school trips. Whether these are local trips, such as visits to Batley Library, or further afield, we will provide information nearer the time.  



Children receive homework every Friday; it should be handed in on the following Wednesday.  We have a lunchtime club for anyone who needs to complete homework at school. 



The school communicates in several ways to keep parents/carers up to date. If you have not yet downloaded the school ping app to your smart phone, then please speak to the school office for further information. Please also ensure all your contact details are up to date including an email address.
