Neptune -Year 5



Welcome to Neptune Class!

I am Mr Bucknall (Neptune’s class teacher) and I am supported by Miss McCormack, who is the class TA.

This half term we will be learning lots of new things. Our topic is Invaders, where will be mainly focusing on The Saxons and their reign on British soil. We will be exploring the differences from children of these times to children of today, tasting our own Saxon food and creating Saxon shields.In English, we are beginning to write adventure stories. We will also have a weekly grammar focus, so please ask your child what we are studying and help them to revise this subject. As a class, we are reading the Shakespeare play Macbeth.

With the children being in the Juniors, they will need to bring their own fruit for a playtime snack. I will remind them to take this to the playground. They will also be learning Spanish once a week.

A few helpful reminders:

We have PE twice a week. Children must have their full PE kits for Monday afternoon and Tuesday mornings.

Children must read and have their reading record signed every night. If this isn’t completed more than twice in a week then your child will miss playtime to read. Homework is due in on Wednesday. I will mark it and return it on Thursday. If homework isn’t completed then children will be expected to complete it at playtime.

Year 6 children can expect more homework then year 5 children in the lead up to SATS.

Please collect your child from the playground at the end of the day (3:15pm) and remember to let the office know if someone different will be collecting your child.

As always, please speak to me if you have any concerns regarding your child over the next term.
