Welcome to Canada Class 2020 – 2021!

I am Miss Thomson, your class teacher and the other adults that support our learning are Mrs Johnson and Miss Maynard. We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday and are ready for a fun packed term with lots of fun things planned!

Please keep checking our class page for updates and photographs of our learning throughout the academic year.



Here is some useful information to help you settle into Year 5.

Throughout Year 5, we will be learning about Mission X (Space), Raging Rivers,  The Only Way is Wessex ( the Vikings and Anglo Saxons ), Heads will Roll (the Tudors) and the Ancient Greeks (Who Let the Gods out?).



Maths, English and Spelling homework will be given weekly and there will be a half termly topic project too. This will be added to Google Classroom. As you are now in Year 5 it is up to you to plan your time carefully to make sure it is completed on time. All Children should read for at least 20 minutes every day and at least once during the weekend. Children are encouraged to read a book of their own choice.


P.E. and Swimming Kit

Your kit remains the same; black shorts, white t-shirt, suitable footwear and an Ardley Hill tracksuit. We will have PE on a TUESDAY.

For swimming you will need a one piece swimming costume or trunks, towel, flip flops or other suitable footwear, a swimming cap for long hair and a carrier bag for wet clothes.
