Welcome to Hazel Class- Year 5 at Newtown Primary School.

SUMMER Term 1.


The current teacher is Mrs Weston, covering for Mrs Floyd while she is on maternity leave. We wish Mrs Floyd the best of luck with motherhood. 

Mrs Thorpe is our teaching assistant.


PE days are Tuesday and Thursday- Please ensure that your child has a PE kit for both indoor and outdoor PE. 

On Tuesdays, we will be doing some circuit training indoors.  Thursdays will be outside and as the weather continues to improve we will be playing rounders.


Homework will be sent home on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. It will consist of work that the children have already been taught. The aim is to provide them with additional exposure to the curriculum- in different formats and contexts. Parental support with this is valued and appreciated.

The topic for this term is:  Gregarious Greeks.

We will be learning all about life in Ancient Greece.



This half-term we will be looking at All livings things including humans. 

We will explore how humans grow and develop: from babies to old age.


Warning: We will be covering puberty so no doubt your child might ask you some 'grown-up' questions. Honesty is the best policy as children are very accustomed to receiving information. If you have any questions about this please come and see me.  The lesson on puberty is currently scheduled for the last week of this term.
