P.E.  (Wednesday and Thursday)
This term in Year 5 will be learning gymnastics. Children will learn and develop skills in how to create a sequence using follow and leading. 

Long hair should be tied back. While children should not be wearing any jewellery other than a watch and/or stud earrings, both of which will need to be removed for P.E. lessons.


Children who wear earrings must remove them for PE. If they are unable to do this themselves, they have to be taken out at home prior to coming into school. Tape is not allowed to be used due to health and safety.


If the children are unable or have forgotten to take out their earrings, they are not allowed to take part physically but they can be given different jobs around the PE lesson such as observations of class performances, taking pictures, writing about the key points for the particular skill you are focusing on during that lesson.

This term we will be studying incarnation. 

This term we will be looking at Spreadsheets and creating graphs and bar charts linked with Maths and History.

We will be learning about family and friends. We will also be looking at anti bullying. 



During this half term we be looking and properties of materials and how materials change. 

Homework is set each Friday to be returned to school on Thursday


All children are expected to do private reading at home and also to practice their spellings and multiplication tables. In each homework book, there is a list of the statutory year 5/6 spelling words. These should be learnt independently across the year in addition to spelling rules set as homework. There will be a weekly spelling test which is held on Thursday
In the children's homework books there is a set of tasks for them to do weekly- their homework books must be brought into class each week to be marked.

If you ever feel you need to speak to me about your child or about his/her education, please find me at the end of the day, or send a letter into school with your child, and I will be happy to speak to you.
Miss Hoque
