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 using the apparatus inside.  Thursdays will be outside and as the weather continues to improve we will be playing basketball.


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:  Greeks go for Gold 

We will continue to learn all about life in Ancient Greece.



This half-term we will be looking at FORCES. 

We will look at gravity, resistance, magnetism, balanced and unbalanced forces and how it all works.

This will include a few fun experiments!
