St Helen’s Catholic Primary School

Class 5

Welcome to our Class 5 page.


PE - Our PE Days are Tuesday and Wednesday. After Christmas we will change one of these days to Monday to work with Mr. Johnson and Activ Fusion. In Class 5 children should bring their PE kits on Monday and leave them in school until Friday in case we need to change our PE day.


Homework - Homework will go out every week on a Wednesday and will be returned the following Monday, in most cases this will include a piece of literacy, numeracy and spelling. We also use Time Table Rock Stars in our class and should use this as regularly as possible in addition to weekly homework.


Topic - This term our topic on History with a particular focus on Ancient Civilisations. We will be looking at three civilisations in particular: Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and The Mayan civilisation. We will be focusing on the cultures and conflicts of these three civilisations as well as developing our understanding of their wider placement in the history of the world, the way we find information about them and their lasting impacts on our modern world. Our enquiry question for this topic is "Do we really know what ancient civilisations were like and can we learn anything from them?” and our children will be using the information they learn in the topic to try and answer this question for themselves.

One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
