Welcome back to the first part of our Spring term! I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and New Year. 

We are very busy in year 5 this term (as always!)


If you would like to purchase Singfest tickets, this is th elink: 

Please follow all the instructions on the website.

Musical Instruments

All instruments need to be in school every Thursday.

Like before Christmas, we will be learning our brass instruments on Thursday afternoons at 2.30. Please make sure that you have your instrument in school!! I would recommend that you all take home your instruments each week and practice as much as you can. I am learning the trumpet too and have found that even playing for 5 minutes whenever I can has really helped me to improve. Practice makes perfect!


This term we will be having our PE sessions on Tuesday afternoon (swimming) and Thusday afternoon. Please esnure your child has their swimming kit on a Tuesday and then normal PE kit on a Thursday. I will try to do as many sessions outside, but as the weather worsens we will begin more indoor sessions.


I send out a maths homework each week (relating to what is being taught in class that week). These are given out every Friday and due back on the following Wednesday.

This term, I will not be setting a prescribed weekly spelling test. We will be doing spellings everyday in class to try and improve the whole class's spelling. If you would like to continue spelling practise at home, I have attached a list of words which children are expected to be able to spell by year 5/6. 

Mental Arithmetic

As a class, we all need to work on our mental arithmetic and building up speed and fluency. 

There are some websites that you can access from home which will help a lot in speeding up our recall of basic number facts and timestables.

These are: - The daily 10 - Hit the Button - Multiplication game


Project Homework

Twice each half term I will set a project-based homework, which will usually be a topic-based task with a literacy focus.

We are currently looking at Properties of materials in Science. 

This half term we are learning all about Ancient Greece in History and climate in Geography.

There is a project homework sheet in your purple homework book and also uploaded to the class page below.

The next project will be due on the 25th February.
