Jesus said, "I have come in order that you may have life - life in all its fullness."
Welcome to summer term 2022!
We have lots of exciting activities planned for this half term. We are beginning out new topic Ancient Greeks and lots of interesting lessons planned. I am really looking forward to a successful and enjoyable summer with the children.
Our Christian Value for this half term is PERSEVERANCE. Have a look on our Values tab to see how we have been exploring how that looks in our school and how we can live it out in our lives, as Jesus taught us to.
Our RE enriches all of our learning. This half term, we are looking at the question...
Why is Jesus inspiring to some people?

Things to remember in Year 5
- School planners and reading books should be in school every day.
- Children need to have their own water bottle in school every day.
- Toast or an apple is served each morning. This is be paid for online and is £10 per term.
Homework will be set for each topic - please do try to complete as many of the activities as possible to earn points that will earn a special prize at the end of each topic for those children who have reached their target. Be creative and really show that love of learning at home as well as in school
Children will be expected to complete their reading, weekly spellings and times tables on TT Rockstars. This will support their progress throughout the year in literacy and numeracy.
Please note: Our PE sessions are on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
The children will now bring in their school PE kit (including a plain sweatshirt) and leave it in their lockers. Please send them in long joggers when the weather begins to turn and a waterproof in the event of rain. We will try to access PE outside whenever we can.
Children will have their own reading books to take home. We look forward to seeing your progress on our Reading Rocks chart.
We will be reading a class book each half term - some will be linked to our topic, others simply because they are awesome stories and great examples for us to magpie from in our own writing!
We have a well resourced school library where the children are allowed to select a book and there is also a reading corner in the classroom which we will encourage the children to use regularly to really build that love of reading.
