Welcome back to the summer term. We have lots of exciting plans for our final term together, starting with preparing for our residential trip, which is only three weeks away!

To begin the term, we are going to be basing our topic work on the Sixties, which Martha requested in Year 5 as her first homework letter; I had not forgotten! We will be learning about fashion, music and some of the key events of that interesting decade. We will also be doing a mini topic around the World Cup, including visiting the National Football Museum on the day before the competition starts (as requested by certain football fans in Year 6!)

Later in the term, we will be working with the whole school on a ‘Lost Words’ project, as well as enjoying Sports Week and performing our summer show; ‘The Pirates of the Currybean.’ More details for both will follow in due course.

PE will continue on Mondays and Thursdays, and we may also run on Fridays. School PE kit must be in school every day. If your child is using their kit at an after school sports event, please make sure that it is back in school the following day, as it is very disruptive to their and the class's learning if they are unable to participate.

Challenge 40 I am delighted with the amount of reading that most of the children are enjoying, and ask that you continue to encourage them to enjoy their reading every day. This term, we will be encouraging the children to read and recommend books about the natural world, as part of our preparations for future topic work. In class, we will be reading Alan Garner’s Weirdstone of Brisingamen, and Abi Elphinstone’s Sky Song. If your child has a copy of either, they may like to keep it at school so they can follow as we read.

Please continue to encourage them to record reviews of any good books on the class reading recommendations on the school website, or on the relevant page on Amazon, or I know that authors really value these reviews, and we like to give the children purpose for their writing!

Homework is given out on Fridays and needs to be handed in by Wednesday at the end of the school day. I realise that Year 6 will have had a great deal of homework by the 5th week of this term, and I am sure you will be delighted to know that it will ease off significantly then!

There will be the same amount of homework for Year 5 children in the class. Your child should continue to access the school website to record their homework each week.

I will continue to post full details of each week's homework on the website, as well as sending it home in their homework books, so there is no reason for homework not to be completed on time.

I also use the school website blogs to share examples of excellent work. If you like what you see, a comment back is always very welcome, and very valuable feedback, especially to other children in the class!


We will continue to tweet each day from the chalkface. You may see selected writing or other work is tweeted. If so, and you have a look at it, a 'like' is really valuable feedback for the children, or a comment back would also be great. @stannesclass5

If there are any issues, as always, please feel free to come in after school, or to email me. I will always endeavour to read emails overnight, but cannot guarantee to reply the same day.

Mrs P Thomas
