Important information


Children should bring their reading book and record every day. Children can bring a healthy snack for break time each day.


PE is every Tuesday for both classes, plus 5LC will need kits on a Monday and 5AA on a Wednesday.  Children should wear black leggings or joggers, a white tee shirt and trainers or pumps.



Children should read each day as well as practise their timetables, this could done online through Timetable Rockstars.  In year 5 we encourage children to write their book into reading records. However we would like adults at home to sign and write comments to show they have read. On Mondays, children will change their home reading books and library books. Spellings and homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned the following Thursday. A spelling test will take place every Friday.


Dear parents / carers,

Welcome to the Summer Term! We have lots of learning to do until to end of the year and some fantastic units across the subjects.


In Maths, we are looking at fractions, decimals and percentages before moving on to shape, measure and statistics. Your child knowing all their timestables is so important to fractions, decimals and percentages so please ensure they are practising at home. They also need to know all their fluency targets on their Maths  Fluency Target Booklet.


In English, we are reading ‘Holes’ written by Louis Sachar. The book centres on Stanley Yelnats, who is sent to Camp Green Lake, a correctional boot camp in a desert in Texas, after being falsely accused of theft. We are writing a non-chronological report about yellow-spotted lizards and a police bulletin about his alleged crime.

We will then look at the fantastic picture book ‘The Arrival’ by Shaun Tan which tells the story of every migrant, every refugee, every displaced person, and a tribute to all those who have made the journey.


In science, we are looking at animals, including humans and living things in their habitats. In geography, we are learning about the United States of America. In art, we are learning about North American artists. In music, we are all learning how to play the violin by a music teacher. In RE, we are looking at the story of Daniel. In PSHE, we are learning about healthy minds and bodies and coping with change.
