Hello to a new school year at Palmarsh Primary School!

Year 5 is an important year at school, as a class we will be starting a journey to prepare them for Year 6 and beyond! 


In Literacy this term, we will be reading and studying a hauntingly beautiful book, called The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes.

It is a story based on a poem, with lots of brilliant description and a gripping story, I am looking forward to sharing this with the class!





Times Table Challenge


Learning your times tables is an incredibly important part of your education, therefore, Fox Class complete a 'Times Tables Challenge' twice a week. This is against the clock with the pupils challenging themselves to complete the various levels, hopefully reaching the fabled 'Ultimate Challenge' which includes all 144 times tables!

Homework and Spellings

Reading Challenge!


As in every year, reading is incredibly important skill to not only learn but to constantly improve upon. In Year 5, we have a special reading challenge which rewards those who read every day!

Every time your child reads, they will receive a raffle ticket, which will be placed in our reading penguin. At the end of each term, one lucky winner will be chosen and will receive a special prize. The more times you read, the more likely you are to win!


Physical Education


Physical Education or PE, as many benefits to education. It provides many health benefits, both physical and mental, as well as increasing confidences and self esteem. 

As always, I encourage all pupils to participate in PE, providing plenty of chances for them to show off new skills.

This term we will be learning how to play as a team in a variety of different team games!



However, it is important that all pupils wear the appropriate kit:

Plain white t-shirt

Black or white shorts

Trainers or Plimsols
