Welcome to the Galileo class page. Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday.
Galileo (Year 5)
All classes are named after scientists this year. Our class is named after Galileo Galilei as his work closely links to our science unit of Earth and Space.
Our teacher is Mr Ring and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Stevens. Ms Ramirez will teach us on Friday mornings.

- PE: Currently, Outdoor PE will take place on a Wednesday and indoor PE will be on Fridays. Please send your child into school in their PE kits and remove jewellery if they are unable to remove it themselves. We will be swimming later in the year.
- Reading: Please remember to keep reading with your child every night. Even if they are able readers please ask them questions and discuss what they are reading. We would like children to read at least 5 times a week (this will include using Reading Plus 3 times a week). Just a quick note in their reading record book, together with a parent/carer signature, will earn them rewards such as house points.
- Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday. Please ensure your child completes all of their homework every week.
- Spelling: Spellings and times tables to be learnt for a test on Friday.
Here is a timetable of a typical week in Year 5:
