Summer Term

Dear Parents/ Carers,


This termly letter is to inform you of the exciting projects and topics that we are learning about in Year 5. This term we will be studying plants and animals and their life cycles as well as Brazil.



PE is on Thursday but children should leave their full kit at school all week.



The homework will be handed out on Wednesdays, to be returned the following Tuesday.

Weekly homework will include:

  • Times tables and a Maths task
  •  Weekly spellings and five sentences
  • Reading for 30 minutes each week night

The children have also been given some termly homework based on our Brilliant Brazil topic. The children earn points through completing different tasks. This homework is due in on the last week of the summer term. (Week beginning Monday 16th July).


Please see the Year 5 blog on the Farne Primary website for photo-graphs and reports about the activities the children are enjoying. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to speak to us before or after school.


Thank you very much for your support.

Mrs Bennison, Miss Blackith and Mr Atherton.
