Class Name: Swifts


Our topic this term is 'Who were the Anglo-Saxons?'

We will be discovering where the Anglo-Saxons came from and what life was like for them in Britain.  We will be finding out about their links with Christianity, what law and order was like, discovering more about the amazing artefacts found at Sutton Hoo and investigating if there were any Anglo-Saxon settlements in our local area. 


Welcome to Year Five!

We hope that your child enjoys being a Swift!


Maths Homework

Maths homework is given out on a Friday, to be completed by the following Friday. Children receive a well-done-dot for returning homework on time.

The homework will be based on the activities that we have done in class that week, and it is a chance for children to practise what they have learnt and consolidate their learning.

Children are able to have extra help or just a chance to complete homework during lunchtimes.

Homework will also be available online via Seesaw.

English Homework

We encourage children to read at home with an adult. This reading can be anything from a novel to a shopping list. We ask that a record of this is noted in the children's reading record books.

Children are encouraged to access Bug Club on the website for extra reading and comprehension skills. They should have their login written in the front of their reading record.



Children will be given a list of age-related spellings. Spellings will be given out each week on a Friday and tested on the following Friday. As well as practising the words, it would be useful for children to have a go at putting these into sentences (this does not have to be written down).

Times Tables

Times tables are a crucial part of maths, underpinning everything that we do, so I would strongly recommend regular practise. 

Children have their own log in to Times Tables Rockstars which we encourage the children to access regularly, at home and at school.

The following website also has suitable games for children to practise their times table facts too. (Hit the Button is particularly popular with the children!)


PE this term is on Tuesday afternoon. When we can do lessons will be outdoors.  Children should come to school wearing their PE kit on a Tuesday.  Earrings need to be removed or taped over for lessons.

We will continue to take part in the Daily Mile, weather permitting.


Water Bottles

Children are encouraged to bring water bottles with them to school each day; they will have access to them throughout lessons but will remain in the class at lunch time, so you may wish to send an extra drink in their lunchbox.

Healthy Snacks

We encourage your children to bring healthy snacks into school such as fruit, vegetables, cereal bars, crackers etc.
