Key Information

New Year 6s - 2022/23

There is an open day at Nottingham High School scheduled for Saturday 24th September for Year 5. Please download the attached file for more information.

Uniform and PE Kit

Please ensure your child comes to school in the Victoria School uniform. This includes completely black shoes. They should bring their correct PE kit to school on a Monday and leave it here until Friday as sometimes the timetable can change and this may affect PE days. Everything should be clearly labeled, including coats and lunchboxes.



There will be an expectation in Year 5/6 that all children have their reading diary and reading book in school every day. They will be given a suitable text from school but they should also be selecting their own books to read from home or in the classroom.

It is absolutely crucial that children read for at least 10 minutes each day at home. This will enable them to build a wider vocabulary and a rich imagination.

If you have any questions about how to support your child at home, we would be more than happy to help!​​

Vocabulary and Spelling

Please practise the 'Words of the Week' with your child at home. The new words will be given on a Monday and will be tested the following Monday. You will find them written into reading diaries.

Maths - Times tables up to 12

Speedy recall of times tables is vital for success in so many areas of maths. Children should practise their times tables weekly at home and these can be found in their reading diaries. Children must also know the related division facts.
