Summer Term 2024


Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back after the Easter holidays! We have a busy and exciting summer term planned.  This term we will be focusing upon Black British History for our History topic. We will also be talking learning Map Skills in Geography.



We are working with specialist teachers from BYMT to provide children with some outstanding music teaching. The objective is to provide a continuum of study, giving students the opportunity to further develop their musical skills. If children are taking part in music technology this term, please can they bring headphones that have the aux/headphone style connection, in order to be compatible with school devices.



All children in year 5 will still have P.E on a Monday afternoon, this will be taught by Munchkin coaches. Please can all children come in to school in their PE kits every Monday. Jewellery causes us concern from time to time and we would like to ensure that children do not wear rings, necklaces etc., small studs are acceptable but must be removed for P.E. Now the warm weather is upon us, can we please ensure that children have water bottles in school for PE and hats if necessary.  Please also remember a spare pair of shoes so the children can change if the field is muddy.




Reading- Children are still expected to be reading at home at least 3 times a week for at least 20 minutes, and this should be signed in their reading record. This can be with an adult or independently.

Spelling- Children will be given weekly spellings on ‘Doodle Spell’. We will be covering these words during our spelling lessons.

DoodleMaths - These are not compulsory as homework but children can still complete whenever they wish.

We are keen to continue to promote high standards both in the classroom and around school. We are delighted to see that the majority of pupils are wearing the correct school uniform. Can we remind you that all school policies, including the uniform policy, are available on the school website.


Finally, we are hoping that the warmer weather will be upon us! Please can you ensure (if necessary) that your child has a sunhat, cream and plenty of water to drink during the day.


Thank you for your support this year.


Many thanks,

Mr Lloyd and the Year 5 team
