We hope you all had a lovely spring and are starting to enjoy the summer.
Before the Easter holidays, the children who went to Avon Tyrell had an amazing time and all thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as did the children who stayed behind at school.
This term, in English, we are reading ‘The boy at the back of the class’. This book just so happens to tie in with what’s going on in the Ukraine at the moment. It’s about a boy (Ahmet) who is a refugee and has started at a new school. We will be writing a character description about the narrator who we never actually find out what they look like.
In Maths we will be learning about Geometry and Problem Solving using all 4 operations.
Here is a list of the topics we are learning at school this term:
- Art-Animals in their habitats’ (pen line drawing) Joanna Basford + Copacabana- Pop Art ICT – Lobo.
- Science-Properties, Materials and changes. Transparency, Opacity, Mixtures and Solutions + Study reflection and assessment.
- Cosmic Geography- Rivers and water cycle.
- P.E.– Rounders & Dodge ball.

The end of Year 5 is fast approaching. We will be working hard to get the children ready for their transition to Year 6 and hopefully enjoying some nice, warm weather.
We are looking into a trip to the beach and will also be holding a parent drop in during June, details to follow for both.
Welcome back! We hope that you had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas. It has been lovely to see all of the children again and to catch up on all their holiday news.
Christmas Art Challenge
We were delighted that so may children took up the Christmas Art Challenge. Well done to them and thank you for all of the support from you at home.
Christmas Reading Challenge
Additionally, we would like to congratulate the children who completed the Christmas Reading Challenge. Please see a picture of a few of them below.
Spring Term – 1
This is an exciting term at school. We look forward to the children making continued progress across the curriculum. Please ask your children what they have been up to at school each day. You should start to hear about our new English text, ‘Who Let the Gods Out’ by Maz Evans which links well to our new History topic of Ancient Greece. In Science we will be looking at Forces and in Maths we will be working hard on Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.
Of course, at the end of Spring Term we will be going to Avon Tyrrell. Please look out for communications about this.
Don’t forget that we are always keen to maintain communication with you at home. Please use our year group email address email@example.com for general enquiries or call the school office if you would like to discuss particular issues with your child’s teacher(s).
