Mr Hunt teaches Class Five, supported by Mrs Grime and Mrs Cowling.

PE - Currently we have PE sessions Wednesday. We request that your child brings PE kit to school and we are changing in school.  Tracksuit bottoms and some sort of tracksuit top or sweat-shirt would be advisable as we head into winter.  Please ensure these items are clearly labelled.

Water bottles needed as no cups or jugs available at lunchtimes.

Homework will be sent out on Fridays and return on Wednesdays.

Any changes we will try to keep you updated as quickly as possible.

We will update this page with overviews of current topics, topic homework, photos of class work and other important information related to Class 5.



Below, are some guidelines for the curriculum content in Year 5 : what a child is currently expected to know / be able to do before entering Y6.
You could use these guidelines to support them at home.
Paper copies have been sent out of the following :
Year 3/4, 5/6 spelling lists
Curriculum Overview
Y5 non-negotiables
Ongoing spelling practice from the Year 3/4, 5/6 sheets.
Ongoing times tables practice.
Ongoing reading : library book,  any book from home - or any other reading material your child is interested in. Any of these 'reads' can be entered into the yellow reading diary and will count towards the bookmark stars.
It is expected for Year 5 that pupils complete two pieces of homework a week:  The maths set each week (usually MyMaths) and English set from the CGP Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling book.  Homework will be set every week on Friday, to be completed by Wednesday Morning the following week.  Homework club is available if access to mymaths is a problem or if your child would prefer to do their homework at school.
If you ever have any questions about any of the above, or about curriculum information, or concerns about your child's progress, please feel welcome to send in a note or come to talk to me at the end of the day. 
Here are the cursive letters that we practice at school. Cursive handwriting is generally thought to be the easiest, most fluent way to write, once mastered. It also aids spelling through 'muscle-memory' when joining.
