Year 5

Welcome to the Summer Term. 

We have recently started our Romans project which we will be continuing this term. We will looking into the lives of Boudicca, Julius Caesar and many Roman emperors.

Our PE days are still Wednesday and Thursday. We noticed lots of children forgetting kits last term. Please make sure they have indoor and outdoor kits all week. They will also need to remove all jewellery and ensure they have trainers for these sessions. 

Our new homework menu is coming out in the first week of term. The children need to pick two tasks for the half term and tick their name off our lists once they have completed them. These should be completed to a good standard and handed in on time. 

Mr Parkes’ class have their class assembly on Friday 26th May. 

We also have Chester approaching from Tuesday 27th June to Friday 30th June. 

This is an exciting and busy time. As always, any questions or queries, just let us know.

Updates for this half of term

Just a little note that Mr Parkes' class will be swimming every Monday for 4 weeks starting from Monday 7th November. Their other PE time will be Wednesdays and so they will need to bring their kit for this and remove any ear-rings. 

Miss Cattini's class have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays and so will need to bring their kits for these days.  

Year 5 will be going for a trip to Glassworks in Chatteris this Friday to watch glass being blown. The children do not need to bring anything but might want to consider what to wear as the weather is quite unpredictable at the moment. Look out for some photos from this trip. 


Drama in the Amazon

Welcome back to school everyone. We hope you have had a wonderful summer and are feeling rested. 


Just a few pointers for the term.

1. We begin this school year with the topic of Brazil.

2. Homework: There will be a homework menu coming out soon. Homework will be due every other Friday (this is all stated on the homework menu) and is full of lots of creative tasks. We will also be expecting the children to read daily and record on their reading cards. We also expect at least 20 minutes of TT Rockstars to be completed every week. 

3. PE: Our PE times are Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit including sensible footwear. Ear-rings must be removed for PE and no jewellery is to be worn. 

4. Indoor shoes: Please ensure your child has indoor shoes to change into for this school year. These should have a back to them and be suitable to wear outside in case of an emergency. 


All that is left to say is we look forward to an enjoyable Year 5.
