Our LearninG

Terms 1 - Autumn Term

Our topic for the first term will be 'Battle of the Invaders'. We will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons, including who they were, where they came from, what daily life was like for them. To support our learning, we will be going to Hill End in October to be part of an Anglo-Saxon experience day. We will also be baking Anglo-Saxon bread. Check out our newsletter Autumn Term newsletter - Battle of the Invaders for more details.


Water Bottles – Please provide your child with a named water bottle daily.

Homework will be given out on Thursdays and should be handed in on Tuesdays.

Reading – It is your child’s responsibility in Year 5 to change their home reading book when they have finished reading it. They are given time at school to do this. We would like children to read at home for at least 20 minutes each day.

P.E – All Year 5 classes are being PE taught by Ignite on a Tuesday. The children will also have a second lesson of P.E with their class teacher if they are not swimming.

Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit consisting of shorts, a white t-shirt and a pair of trainers suitable for outdoors in school. Please ensure that this P.E kit is kept in school between Monday and Friday to ensure that the children have it available for any impromptu lessons.

Swimming will continue every Wednesday.
