Year 5 2018 - 2019

Mr Hughes

Year 5 teacher

Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page!

I hope you have all had a brilliant Christmas holiday, and you are ready for an action-packed Spring Term!

Our topic for Spring Term is 'Ancient Egypt', which will be linked in with all our subjects to create a broad, balanced curriculum. The children will be asked to research, discuss, debate and write about the Egyptians, ensuring that they cover a wide range of Year 5 Curriculum skills. The children will be designing and producing a range of Hieroglyphic art pieces, which will be displayed in the classroom. 

We entered out second 'Power Cycle' before Christmas, which will continue in to the Spring Term for seven weeks. The children have recently been assessed and will continue to attend Power Literacy and Maths lessons within the relevant Power group. If you have any queries about this, then please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Our curriculum newsletter is attached to this page so you can read about our plans for Spring Term.

I hope the children are all eager to come back to school and are ready for a fabulous, exciting term of learning.

Should you have any concerns or queries, please remember that I am usually available to talk each afternoon at home time.  

Mr E Hughes  

Key information


All reading books and journals need to be in school every day. Please try to read at least three times a week with your child. Regular reading practice at home can help to improve your child's reading, spelling, vocabulary and writing so it is very important.

From the start of this year, we have introduced a class reading diary checklist. The children who read at least three times each week will be in contention to receive a class reward at the end of the term. 


Homework will be set every Wednesday by your child's 'Power Teacher' with the expectation that it will be back in school by Monday. Alongside our homework each week, I will be setting a stand-alone homework quest that should be completed over the course of a few weeks - details to follow. 


PE kits will need to be in school each Monday and they can be taken home each Friday. PE will take place on a Wednesday and Friday. However, there may be occasions when PE kits are required for other activities/unscheduled events and so it is important that your child's kit is in school every day.
