Year 5

Welcome to Sphinx Class 


It's time for Term 2 - I am looking forward to another exciting term ahead and I hope you are too, although there will be some changes we will continue to learn and have a busy, productive and fun term.  We also have our Class assembly this term as well as a Year Five/Six Christmas production so I hope you are all feeling extra dramatic!


This term our topic is The Monarchy and we will be looking at the timeline of the Monarchy from 1066 until today. As well as this, in Maths we will be looking at Multiplication & Division, identifying multiples and factors and finding factor pairs.  We will also be using this knowledge to help us find area and perimeter of rectanguler shapes. Discovering more about ourselves in RSHE and looking at Living Things and their habitats in Science where we will build on last terms knowledge by looking at the life cycles of plants and using our knowledge to sort information.  We have another busy term ahead!



Your week:

Music (trumpet lessons) will be on a Thursday afternoon.

PE will also be on Thursday afternoons - please ensure all PE kit is in school.  Blue or black shorts, your House-coloured t-shirt and trainers.  

Mile Run - this is daily so trainers should be in school every day.



  • You are expected to read at home for 20 minutes (minimum) every day, complete your Reading Record and bring it to school with you daily
  • Spellings will be given out and tested weekly.  These will be based on the patterns and rules of Year 5 and are in addition to the Spelling Bee words for each long term (mainly the Government Year 5/6 statutory spelling lists)
  • Maths - this year it is an arithmetic focus which should take you a minimum of 10 minutes a day.  Use Times Tables Rock Stars to improve your Times Table speed and accuracy aswell.

Please ensure you are organised with completing all set homework and that you put sufficient effort into completing it.  If you have any difficulties completing this work, please come and speak to me as soon as possible so we can go over it together.



Please contact me with any questions you may have or to advise me of anything I need to know.


Best wishes, 


Miss Dickson
