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


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, particularly as the weather gets colder.  On Tuesdays, we will be undertaking a number of indoor activities that involve problem solving and teamwork.  Thursdays will be outside and as the weather continues to improve we will be learning how to play tennis.


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 the second half of this term is the Environment (What effect are humans having?)

I am sure this will produce some healthy debate amongst the children.


This half-term we will be looking at All livings things and their habitats.  This will include looking at and dissecting some flowers so please make sure you let me know if your child has hay-fever- they will certainly needs medication on this day or an alternative lesson!
