MEET THE TEAM
Welcome to Year 5 with Mr Calvert and Mrs Thompson. Both classes have made a super impression and we are looking forward to the rest of the year.
Our policy for homework is little and often. Children are given spellings to copy in to their planners each Monday, which needs to be returned and completed the following Monday ready for a test. A list has been sent home with the termly overview of all the spellings tohelp you support your child this term. Reading books come home daily and we encourage children to read for approximately 10 minutes a night. Please would you also encourage them to record this reading in their planner. To help with their maths, children are given SMIRF targets are encouraged to practise these skills daily.
Our class novel this term is 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief' by Rick Riordan. We would like to encourage parents to purchase a copy of this book for their children if possible but we do have a few copies in school if this is not possible. This book has proven extremely popular in the past and helps to support our 'Woodlands' topic well.
Children require indoor shoes at school and will need P.E kits on Tuesday and Thursday if in 5WC and Thursday and Wednesday if in 5JH.
We hope your children have another great term and please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information.
Please see the following pdf document for the termly curriculum overview.

We have had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon competing in our Greek Olympics. The children competed as one of 5 city states. Every child took part in 4 events: the sprint (stade), standing long jump, javelin and marathon (long run!). Many children qualified for the finals and some exceptional pupils were placed gold, silver and bronze. We look forward to awarding these pupils later this week.
Thank you to all for providing costumes to help bring the event to life. We hope you enjoy the photographs.
