Dear Parents,


Welcome to the Spring term– we hope that you had a fantastic Christmas and New Year! Many thanks for all of the lovely Christmas cards, gifts and well wishes – we truly appreciate them.

This term our topic will be ‘Early Islamic Civilization’. We have already begun looking at when this period of time was and how it started and we will be looking at different aspects of life in this time. To help the children to understand the topic further, we will be visiting a museum in Oxford later in the term.


Our value for this term is Compassion – if your child has any examples of when they have been compassionate outside of school that they would like to share with the class, we would love to hear about them!



Homework this term continues to predominantly be reading, spellings and Times Table Rock star practice. Ideally, this will be four times a week for reading and TTRS, allowing your child to earn a raffle ticket. We really appreciate your support with this – we have found that those children who are engaging with TTRS on a regular basis are generally finding concepts in math lessons easier to access, particularly as our maths topics this term are multiplication and division and fractions. Instant recall of their times tables allows them to focus on the different mathematical methods that are being introduced.


Items from home

Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school everyday (several of the children have the same water bottles!) and a PE kit -as the weather (hopefully) gets warmer, we will resume our daily mile and PE may change days, depending on the week.


If you have any questions/concerns at any time, please do contact us via the office or catch us at the end of the day.


Miss Rowlands and the rest of the Year 5 team
