The Hawks class have a lot planned for the summer term with Miss Badhan, Mrs McLean and Mrs Saunders working alongside Mrs Goodwin and Mr Taylor supporting the class as they prepare to move towards their final year at Livingstone School.

This term the class will be looking at a number of intersting topics: they will be discovering more about living things and their habitats; gain a greater understanding of the worlds continents and oceans - focussing on Mexico today and the Aztecs of old; investigating modelling software for computing, and continue to research famous artists from the past.

This has been dovetailed with our English lessons, where we will be using a modern classic fiction book (Kensuke's Kingdom) as the basis of our literacy work this half term.

Information for home

Please ensure clean P.E. kits are brought to school on the Monday, and taken home on a Friday. P.E. days are normally a Tuesday and Thursday, but there are occasions when this does change.

Homework is set on a Friday, and is to be completed the following Wednesday  (Friday for MyMaths).

Children in year 5 are expected to read at home every night. The children each have a reading record, which needs to be signed by whoever listens to that child read.

Spellings are sent home each Friday, for a test the following week.

Children are encouraged to practise their times tables as often as possible, with the ‘Times Table Challenge’ continuing with a weekly challenge every Friday.


If you have any questions regarding your child, please to not hesitate to phone or ask to see Mr Taylor who is always happy to help.

Mr Taylor, Mrs Saunders, Mrs McLean, Mrs Carr, Miss Badhan.
