Class 5/6R - Miss Ridgway

Our timetable:


Each week, homework is set with a Maths and English focus. The homework set for Year 5 will be scheduled on a Thursday and will be due in the following Thursday. Where possible, the homework will reflect areas that have been learnt in class that week or revisiting a topic that may need further consolidation of.

We strongly believe in encouraging the children to take ownership of this, which will ultimately get them ready for the expectations set in High School and adult life.




Your child's spelling list can be found on google classroom and are updated every Thursday. Spellings are given out on a Thursday and are tested the following Thursday.


English - vocabulary development

In a drive to improve vocabulary, our English homework asks children to learn the meanings of the words in their spelling lists and use them in sentences of their own. This can be found on google classroom and is set on a Thursday for completion by the following Thursday.



This is set on every Thursday and is due for completion by the following Thursday. The homework always consolidates what the children have been learning in class.  


PE Timetable

Children will require a full PE kit for any PE lesson that they take part in. Children are also permitted to wear the St Joseph's hoody for PE lessons but are reminded that this is not part of the daily uniform.

Children are encouraged to leave their PE kits in school and to take them home at the end of each half term to clean and bring back at the beginning of the new term. 

Curriculum overview:

Each term, there will be a curriculum overview published on the school website. To access this document, you can click 'Key Information - Curriculum'.

The curriculum overview will outline each topic or unit that will be covered within  each subject. This is great for parents and children to see what fun activities we are learning :)
