This year we will be delivering our topic separately as two lessons – Geography and History. In History, we’re starting to learn about Anglo-Saxons. This is such an exciting and interesting topic that we’re sure the children will love learning about. We will explore the Anglo-Saxon society and learn about the famous kings and queens.  In addition to this, we will find out what life was like for Anglo-Saxon child. In Geography, we will be looking at European countries and cities.  

In Year 5, we will provide your child with homework every Friday, which will usually include a list of their weekly spellings and a piece of maths or English homework. Some pupils may be provided with extra multiplication homework to support them with their times tables. We will also send home a ‘Homework Grid’ each half term, which is a list of activities related to our learning in class. Your child may choose one activity from the grid to complete at home and then bring it into class. This will need to be completed in their homework books and returned the following Thursday to allow us some time to check it and prepare the new homework.  

Our weekly PE sessions will take place every Monday morning. It would be very helpful if your child could come to school in their PE kit with their school uniform to change into after the session. Our PE kit is a white t-shirt and black shorts or black tracksuit bottoms, black leggings and black trainers or pumps. Can we ask for no cropped T-shirts, bight coloured clothing, no football kits and no jewellery, please.
