Mr Pye

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back! We are looking forward to the warmer weather ahead with the pool now open and sports day on its way. We also have our exciting trip to The Black Country Museum! 

This year we have already covered Earth and Space, which was an 'out of this world' topic including a trip and visitor and ‘Britian Through the Ages’ discovering what it was like to be a Viking. This term we move on to the next of our topics, which the children will be immersed in, The Big Smoke. Again, this encompass an array of subjects, knowledge and experiences, and link to all curriculum areas.

The Big Smoke 

Rule Britannia! Britannia rules the Waves. Voyaging down the River Thames our London topic links with our Year 5 residential trip looking at the Victorian era and the rule of Queen Victoria. It will be a right royal affair during the summer term.

In Year 5,children will continue to receive daily spellings, times tables and reading as they did in middle school. They will also need to complete their daily diary entries and blue book learning log homework, which (as requested) is now three weekly. Spellings and timetables will be sent home every Friday. 

This term swimming in the school pool will commence. This will be on a Monday or Friday afternoon and is in addition to normal physical Education lessons. Please ensure your child has the correct kit (shorts for boys, all in one swim suit for girls, a swimming hat and goggles if they wish). 

We appreciate your continued support and are here to answer any questions. If you wish to speak with any of the Year 5 team please do not hesitate to contact us on Class Dojo or appointments made via the office.
