General Information...



PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon.  Please make sure your child comes to school in their PE kits on a Tuesday.




Swimming lessons will be every Thursday morning this term. Please ensure children come to school with their swimming kit in a bag to take with them.


Water bottles

Please ensure your child comes to school with a filled water bottle; we are able to refill these during the day.  Please encourage your child to bring water only.



Tuck will be available for children everyday for 50p. A variety of snacks will be available - from fruit and yoghurt to sausage and bacon rolls. Please encourage children to bring their money in a sealed envelope, these are available at the front office.



Homework is always given out on a Friday and due back in the Friday after. Most learning is related to what we have been working on that week in class, so please let us know if your child struggles at all. Listening to your child read is really important - children are expected to read every day and log it in their reading record. Please write in their record when you have heard them read too.

Our Curriculum:

Our class news for Autumn term:

Place value in maths:

In maths we are learning about place value. We did some activities to help consolidate our learning!

Our first few days in Year 5:

We read two great stories in our first few days in Year 5 all about working together as a class and about each of us having our own talents. We also made kites where we wrote about our aims for the year ahead. We then flew them outside as we are aiming high this year!

Scooter fun:

Unfortunately, the coach didn’t arrive to take us swimming for our first lesson, so instead we had some fun on the scooters! An energetic morning was still had!

Materials in Science:

In Science we are looking at materials and their properties. Firstly, we had to sort objects into categories to decide whether they were a solid, liquid or gas.

Next, we had to feel inside a bag and describe the properties of the objects to our groups to guess what they were. Some were flexible, waterproof, rough, heavy…

We then did an experiment to test whether they were flexible, permeable, hard and transparent.
