Year 5 children in Drinnick are taught by Mr Barritt. Mrs Grindrod is on hand to provide general TA support. Drinnick children also have Mrs Trula on a Monday afternoon for their Spanish lessons.

It is expected that the children will read at home at least 5 times per week. Children will be rewarded for this using our new Reading Karate scheme. Each reading 'session' should be for at least 10 minutes and will require an adult signature in the reading record for verification. Reading in upper key stage 2 is obviously of vital importance for the children's progress. Therefore children who do not read at home 5 times will make up the time in school during play times.

Children in year 5 are set online homework on Education City (a link to this website can be found below). If you require paper copies of homework for year 5 children, please speak to Mr Barritt who will make arrangements to send this home with your child. Year 6 children will have paper homework set on a Friday, to be handed in on the following Thursday.
