What we do

The children are doing a great job working towards their reading rewards so far this year. We would be grateful if you could also support your child with their reading at home. We expect a weekly minimum of 3 ‘reads’ which should be recorded in comment books and signed by a parent/carer.

If you have any problems or require a meeting with any of the teachers for any reason, please come in or ring to make an appointment (preferably at the end of the school day).

We look forward to continuing to work with you all this half term.

Mrs Bond, Mr Wright, Miss Strike, Miss Bowers and Mrs Francis

Hello and welcome back from the holidays. 


We hope you have all had a good break and are ready for another exciting term in Year 5.  There’s lots lined up for the first half of the Spring Term, starting with a trip to the pantomime at the Nottingham Playhouse on Friday 10th January! Our topic this half term is the Ancient Greeks and we will be launching this with our very own version of the Ancient Olympic Games. We will also be studying the lifestyle of the Ancient Greeks, finding out what period of history they represent and studying their beliefs and past times.


Another exciting opportunity this half term is that all children in Year 5 will learn to play the Glockenspiel! We very much look forward to hearing the sounds produced and cannot wait to see how the children progress.
