Welcome back! I hope that you had an enjoyable summer and are ready for another exciting year of school! Wednesday 4th September is your first day in Year 5.

Just a few dates for your diary:

12th September – Brass instrument lessons begin

14th October – Life Education Bus

21st/22nd  October – Parent’s Evening

25h October – Last day of half term



This term we will be having our PE sessions on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday afternoons.


We will also be taking part in a wider opportunity programme of music lessons and every member of our class (including Miss Hermitt!) will be learning a brass instrument with our music teacher, Mr Birch. This will be on a Thursday afternoon.



There is no homework for the first week.

Starting next week, I will be sending out a maths homework (normally a fun maths game) which will help build fluency with mental calculations and the four main operations. Then a grammar/spelling related homework. The maths and grammar/spelling will be weekly.

Then 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 studying the Victorians this term in History, although this is linked with many other subjects. We will be reading a book called 'Cogheart' by Peter Bunzl in literacy, a fantastic dystopian story set in Victorian Britain. We will be looking at Victorian artists in Art.

In Science, we are going to be studying space!

Musical Instruments

All instruments need to be in school every Thursday.

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!
