Physical Education

Year 5  P.E. lessons will take place on Tuesdays. 

They must wear a full Malvern Primary School P.E uniform.  This includes:

  • White T-shirt (plain white or white with Malvern badge)
  • Green shorts Black / grey pumps

If the weather permits, children may bring an outdoor P.E. kit into school along with their normal P.E kit.  This includes:

  • White T-shirt (plain white or white with Malvern badge)
  • Tracksuit pants
  • Jumper or jacket
  • Trainers

Children should have their P.E kit in school everyday.


Reading for pleasure is an integral part of your child’s development. We ask that children should aim to read four times a week and record this independently in their school planner, answering the questions provided. This can be any book/magazine they wish that is of the correct standard.  Some children may have books suggested to them by their teacher to make sure they are of the correct level. Planners will be checked by an adult in school on a weekly basis.

Children should bring their reading book and planner every day, even if they have not read the night before.


Children should have access to their planners in school every day.  It is the children’s responsibility to make sure their planner goes home at the end of each day to record their reading / homework, and comes back into school the next day.  If they forget their planners, their reading should be recorded on a piece of paper and brought into school.


Children will be given a spelling list to complete each week. These will be set and sent home via Spelling Frame on a Friday, with children tested the following week. We ask that children practise their spellings on Spelling Frame at home throughout the week.


Each half term, children will be given homework linked to our current learning expedition. We ask children to use our ‘Ideas for Homework’ help sheet to choose three independent learning projects to undertake each half term. This help sheet will be given out at the start of each half term. Details can also be found by scrolling down to the relevant half term. Homework can be submitted in person, through Seesaw or on Twitter.
