I cannot believe how quickly the beginning of another year at school has come around! I hope everybody is ready for a fantastic year- full of learning.

Our main topic this term is Ancient Egypt. I absolutely love this topic, as there is lots of opportunity for fun.

A few “housekeeping” things to remember: PE is every Monday & Thursday so please ensure the children wear their PE kit to school on those days. I hope this is clear.

Alongside their termly homework grids (found on this web-page), I will be sending home weekly spellings every Friday. These are to be learned for the following Friday each week (weekly spelling test). I will print and send home a copy of spellings each week but a copy is on the school website (Year 5 Class Page) if this is misplaced.

If you need to speak to me about something, after school is usually a good time. Alternatively, you can book a telephone or face-to-face appointment via our office (

Many thanks

Mr Furber
