Welcome to Year 5! 

I am a new teacher to school and I am so excited to be teaching Year 5 and every single pupil has made an excellent start to the year. Keep up the good work!


This term we will be having our PE sessions on Wednesday mornings and Friday afternoons.

We will also be taking part in a wider opportunity programme of music lessons and every member of our class (including Miss Hermitt!) will be learning a brass instrument with a music teacher, Mr Birch. This will take place on a Thursday afternoon.



There is no homework for the first week.

Starting next week, I will be sending out a maths homework (normally a fun maths game) which will help build fluency with mental calculations and the four main operations. Then a grammar/spelling related homework. The maths and grammar/spelling will be weekly.

Then twice each half term I will set a project-based homework, which will usually be a topic-based task with a literacy focus.


Project Homework

We are currently looking at locational knowledge in Geography and this links well with our science topic 'Earth and Space'. For our first project of year 5, I would like you to...

-Create a booklet about a country in the world of your choice.

Your booklet must include:

-A beautifully designed front cover

- Information about the country, i.e. Climate, population, currency, capital city, what continent it is in, what language is spoken.

- Some information about something special related to your country that is different from the UK or a special tradition from that country, for example: France=interesting cuisine, Brazil = Mardi Gras, Spain=running of the bulls, Etc.

The booklet can be one or two sides of a4.
