Summer 2022

Well into the final term and what a term it should be.

Miss Jackson continues to do PE and French on a Monday.

History will be Tudors and Aztecs.  

Science will be materials, their properties and changing states of matter.

In English we will be looking at the poem "The Highwayman" and the story "The Giant's Necklace".

Maths will be covering shape, angles, decimals, translating and rotating shapes within different quadrants and measuring and converting different units of measure.

Art will be looking at shape, light, tone and hue and the impact that they have on how the content is viewed.

DT is linked to the Tudors and Aztecs in History and is the reason for the trip to Cadbury World.

In RE we will be learning about how different religions show generosity and how their architecture demonstrates their beliefs.

It should be lots of fun.


Family Week

7 June – 10 June 2022

As part of our People Skills curriculum, we teach children in each year group a comprehensive and inclusive Relationship and Sex Education Programme, which complements our Christian values. The focus of this learning will take place during our family week, where children in Year 5 will be taught the following, in line with the statutory guidance released from the department of education, 2019:


N.B. This series of lessons will begin in Family Week but will continue throughout the term, as the content in Year 5 is much more broad and learning is more successful when children are given more time to discuss and ask questions on these topics.

If you wish to discuss any of the content around this topic, please feel free to get in touch with me via the school office and we can chat through any concerns that you might have.

Summer Show

Below are links to the songs and dances for the auditions for the show.  Time to warm up those voices and get those dancing shoes on!


Welcome Back - Spring 2022


I will be posting all the information you need on this class web page.

Homework will be set on Mondays and brought back on the following Monday.   Please do learn the spellings every week (which I will post on the web page and which will be given to you children to write in their organisers)


Mrs Lowings will be in class for part of some morning.  Miss Jackson will be teaching PE and French on Monday afternoon.

Some children may go out for extra support with her or may receive it in class from Mrs Lowings or other staff or me.  Often enough children are unaware that they are receiving a special focus or input from adults as we try to do it subtly.  This does not mean that they are not receiving support.

PE will be on Mondays and Tuesdays.  On those days, your child should come to school in his or her PE kit and remain in it all day.

Rewards are as always with Gold and Platinum Cards for good behaviour and work and yellow and red cards for poor work or behaviour.  We will contact you if your child gets a red card and let you know what has happened so that we can work together to resolve any issues.

Topics for this term are: Science - Space and plant and animal reproduction, RE - Religion and the individual (which basically covers basic Christian beliefs, celebrations and the reasons for them), Geography - Rainforests (mainly the Amazon) and comparing them with human and physical geography of North America (Art, DT and some English will be linked to this), Music - playing the ukulele or using an exciting new scheme, PE - Football long distance running and gymnastics, ICT and People Skills. Other subjects will be covered in future terms and details will follow at the beginning of next term.

Please do use the above email address if you wish to contact me.  I will try my hardest to get back to you as soon as possible.

I am really looking forward to working with you.
