St Joseph's Rotherhithe


My name is Miss Keay and I am the Year 5 teacher. Here are some of our weekly routines:


PE takes place on Tuesday and Thursdaytherefore, children should arrive to school in our school PE kit. 

Children will be tested on their times tables every Thursday, so they should continue practise these in their Times Table Book every night. Their books should be signed by an adult at home and will be checked in class every week.

Every Monday, your child will receive a list of spelling words along with a spelling rule. They will need to learn these by the following Monday when they are tested. Please encourage your child to login to the Spelling Shed for interactive spelling games. The test will also include some surprise words, which will follow the spelling rule they have learnt.

As a school, we encourage you to read with your child for at least 30 minutes every night and sign their reading record. Your child will have the opportunity to choose a book from our class library every week.

Homework will be set through Google Classroom and on paper each Friday and should be submitted by the following Wednesday. Children will be awarded house points for completing their homework.
