Welcome to Sphinx Class 


Welcome back to Term 3, I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas Break! 


Our topic this term is Where in the World? We will be learning about the journey of a river and the water cycle. As well as learning about some major rivers and how people came to settle near them.


In English we will be writing an Autobiography, this will be linked to a David Attenborough biography. Science will be properties and changes in materials, this will include some interesting experiments! Maths will include lots of Multiplication and Division.


Your week:

PE - will be a Thursday this term and we will be in the hall doing gymnastics. Please ensure your child has black shorts and a plain t-shirt of their house colour.

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

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, and then add your read onto the BoomRead app daily, ask a parent to do this once a week.
  • 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).  You will be able to practice these on the DoodleSpell app.
  • Maths - we are using Doodle Maths - please ensure you are logging on and either completing your own 5-10 a day questions or the assignment I have set.

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
