Welcome to year 5! 


What is happening in Term 5?

Our topic in Term 5 is ‘Ancient Greece’. We have already generated lots of questions that we would to answer over the next few weeks including ‘what was daily life like in Ancient Greece’ and ‘who were the Greek Gods and Goddesses?’ Our topic work will be complimented by the book ‘Odysseus’ that we will be studying in our English sessions. We will be making Greek pots out of clay in art and learning about Ancient Greek instruments in our music sessions.

This term PE is taught on Thursday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has the correct PE clothes and footwear in school on these days. 



Homework is sent home on a Friday and should be returned on Wednesday. Children will be set either a piece of writing, a reading comprehension or a maths task to complete, along with spellings and weekly times tables for a test on Friday. 

Please continue to read with your child as often as possible and record this in their reading record. 


And finally….

If you wish to speak to me about anything concerning your child please do not hesitate to do so.  You are welcome to visit us on Thursday mornings from 8:40am for 'stay and read' or 'stay and count'.


Thank you for your support.
