• News flash: Our performance at The Courtyard was fantastic! The children worked incredibly hard to learn Shakespeare’s tricky language and wowed us with their acting skills!.

    Huge thanks to Mark Sanderson for helping us film our play and thanks to The Courtyard for giving us the use of a room for filming, without charge.

    Here is a link to our amazing play – watch and enjoy!




    Our topic this half term will be The Tudors. We will explore how the Tudor dynasty led to significant changes for our country and for other countries around the world. We will also be looking at Tudor influences in our own city.  

     In literacy, we will be focussing on drama, learning all about the genius of William Shakespeare, and will be performing The Tempest at The Courtyard on Tuesday 27th January.

    Maths will see us furthering our mastery approach to ensure in-depth understanding of mathematical concepts. We will be doing lots of reasoning this term too!

    In science we will be learning about lifecycles and will link science to PSHE in SRE sessions.

    In art, we will be looking at the great artists of Tudor times and will be sketching and producing our own portraits.


    PE: Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure PE kit is in school every day in case of a change of plan.

    Daily Mile – new year’s Resolution! We will be running daily – please ensure children have trainers and a spare pair of socks in school every day.

    We will be swimming on the following dates:

    Monday 13th January –Friday 17th.


    What you can do to help.

    We will be continuing our big push on reading this term and have collected lots of exciting new books from amazing authors, which have been recommended by other Year 5 children across the country, so Frome class will be spoilt for choice!

    Please hear your child read or read with them on a daily basis, whether it is a school book, library book, comic or an online text. It can be helpful to talk to them about what we have been studying in school, whilst also researching any subjects or topics that have really captured their imagination.
