New Topic Homework grid in the summer folder.

Welcome to Year 5 - Summer Term

Miss Harding and Mrs Fargher with Mrs Hunter, Mrs Jeremiah, Miss Lazar and Mrs O'Neill

Welcome back to the summer term - our final term together. I hope you managed to enjoy the Easter sunny weather with your friends and families. This term is going to be very exciting with our residential trip to Swanage and many sports events. Just a reminder to return to school in summer uniform if you are able to please.

In class, we will finish reading 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce before moving onto several non-fiction units of work. After half term, we will read 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes and 'The Secret of the Night Train' by Sylvia Bishop. If you wish to bring your own copies of these books into school, you may. Our whole school theme this term is Celebrating Our Wonderful World, and our values are tolerance (first half term) and responsibility (second half term) under the umbrella of respect. Please take a look at the curriculum leaflet below to find out more about what we will be covering specifically in the different subjects.   


P.E. lessons will continue to be on Mondays and Fridays (swimming). Children are to come to school in P.E. kits on these days. If they are attending a club after school which they wear a school P.E. kit for, they may also wear it on this day. 


Just a reminder - we will continue to have windows and doors open as much as possible to ensure good ventilation so we hope the summer weather will be kind to us. 


Thank you,


Miss S. Harding smiley

Information for Parents 



Please try to hear your child read every day, just for 10 minutes. It really does make a difference! When your child has finished a book, please write in their reading record. Your child will then put their book and reading record in the box in the classroom and I will sign it before they get a new book. 


I would again like to challenge the children to read as many books from the suggested reading list as possible. It really does make a difference! They will be celebrated in the classroom, on the webpage and in the newsletter so please let me know once they've completed a book and email a photograph of them with the book. I look forward to having another cluttered star board! They can read the books themselves or have them read to them. We will be setting up a class library as before and I have already got a few of the books from the list. 


General Reminders 


  • Hair that is long enough to be tied back please do so fully using a green or hair-coloured band. 
  • No nail varnish please.
  • Plain gold / silver stud earrings only.
  • Your child may wear a watch or Fitbit but these must be removed for P.E.
  • No other jewellery such as friendship bands etc is permitted.
  • If your child wears a religious adornment, please let me know.


Absolutely NO NUTS in school please.
