Next half term (Autumn 2)


Our topic is Ancient Egypt. We are holding an exciting day on Wednesday 13th November, where all children can dress up as an ancient Egyptian. We have invited an expert historian to lead the day, and we will learn about mummies, Egyptian gods and much, much more. Voluntary contributions are requested of £4.00 per child to cover costs, and we are anticipating a very exciting learning experience. Photographs will follow...

Weekly homework


Each week in Year 5, the children are expected to complete the following homework:


- Reading at least 5 times a week. Each week should be recorded in your reading record book. Remember that this can be any reading you choose to do - your school book, your favourite magazine, a sports' website or anything else you are interested in.


- Practising your times tables. Each child has a times table book. They should complete one page of practise each week ready for a test on Friday. There are 5 boxes on each page, so practise once a day to keep your times table knowledge fresh.


- Practising your spellings. Every week we have a spelling test. Spellings are put onto the website - please practise ready for the test on Friday.


Please see your child's teacher if you have any questions about the homework.


Our whole school curriculum focus this week is carnival! We hope that everyone enjoyed our carnival and we look forward to finding out more about carnivals this week! Check out the class web pages to see what we have been up to!
