Welcome to Year 5

Spring Term 1


A massive welcome back following the Christmas break and a very happy new year! I am looking forward to getting 2019 up and running with lots of exciting activities I am sure that the children are too!  


We will begin the Spring term with a Topic based onthe Ancient Greeks. Children will explore what life was like for families in Ancient Greece, and how things have changed over the years! The children will also look at the differences in city states and how the Greeks inveted things that we still use in our lives today.

Children will enjoy many activities from cooking, to building cricuits and exploring our area within school. 


This week we have bene looking at Spartans - and thinking about what life was like for a child growing up in the city state of Sparta.



The children have been given a home/school reading diary that must be brought into school every day.  It has space to record reading times whether that is in school or at home.  We ask that you encourage your child to read at least 10 minutes every day and record this in the diary.  We ask that you as a parent sign this book at least three times every week.  We will sign it every time your child reads with an adult.

The children will be given a book to read at home and in school.  Some children may have books at home that enjoy reading - this is absolutely fine and should be encouraged.  



Homework every week will be spellings given out every Monday with times tables to accompany them. This will then be tested each Friday. In addition, children will be expected to read every night, botjh a book or online on Bug Club.
