Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope you all had a lovely half term.


This term the topic is ‘Invaders and Settlers’ focusing on the invasion of the Anglo-Saxons during the 5th Century and their subsequent settlement in England. The children will be learning about why the Anglo-Saxons chose to invade England and where they settled. Please see the learning web for further information.


The children will continue to receive either SPAG or Maths homework on a Friday which we will go through the following Friday. The children are still expected to complete at least 40 minutes reading each week and their diaries will be checked on Fridays. We want to encourage independence and therefore we remind the children that it is their responsibility to take their diaries home to be signed and bring them in with all of their reading signed off.


Monday and Thursday – PE kit needed for outdoor PE

Wednesday – Clarinet lesson – remember clarinet

Friday – Diaries need to be signed and brought into school

             Homework to be handed in

             New homework will be given out


Water Bottles

Could you please remind the children that they need to bring a named water bottle into school each day if they wish to drink during lessons.

This term Year 5 will be taking part in ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will be split into three groups and group one will start on Tuesday the 10th November. If any parents or carers would like to help out with this, please contact the office. Any help you can offer even for just one week would be greatly appreciated.

Please pop in to arrange an appointment to see us if you have any concerns.  

Many thanks from your Year 5 team

Miss Crossan and Miss Breeze
