Welcome to Sphinx Class 


Welcome back to Term 5, I hope you all had a lovely Easter Break.  The term starts with some of us off to Call of the Wild on 22nd April for 4 nights.  For those of us left behind the school day will continue as normal!


This term our topic is The Maya, we will have a look at where and when they lived, as well as learning about their culture and what happened to them!


English will be completing our persuasive speech and then writing a narrative linked to this terms topic.  Maths starts with measurement including area and perimeter, and PE this term will be rounders on a Thursday.


Your week:

PE - will be a Thursday this term and we will be outside playing Rounders. 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
