Character table of a semidirect product

I am trying to find the character table of a semidirect product of two group with Sage. If I try the following I get an error.

K = SL(2,5)
H = CyclicPermutationGroup(2)
G = GroupSemidirectProduct(K,H)
N = G.character_table()

I guess that this is because semidirect product do not have a built-in method for computing character tables. Is there any other way of computing this?

If you can figure out the syntax, you could try G = libgap.SemidirectProduct(K,H). Some documentation is at
