Welcome to Year 5 and Welcome back to Gawsworth!

Mrs Nicholls and I have had a lovely week meeting all of your children and seeing them settle in so well. We have been impressed by their maturity and enthusiasm for learning. What a credit they are to you.

This term our topic is 'Slavery'. We will be exploring aspects of transatlantic slavery, the abolishionist movement, Apartheid,Civil Rights movement in the USA, right up to the recent development with 'Black Lives Matter' and modern day issues with fairness, racism and slavery in the present day. The attached jigsaw diagram will give you more details of all aspects of the curriculum we intend to cover.

We have also attached our weekly timetable. Of course this will vary from time to time but we hope it helps you understand when ech of us is teaching  (look for the initials CN, SW and HB). We are delighted to have both Mrs Lomas and Mrs Downie in our Y5 team. Mrs Lomas will be here every day and Mrs Downie on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings.


Please ensure your child is in PE kit for all day on WEDNESDAY when we will be having a class indoor PE (Dance).

Swimming is on FRIDAY and you will have received a letter with details of this already.


We are not starting homework routines just yet as we feel the chidren have enough adjustments to make getting back into school. We will send more information about this in 2 weeks time.

Many thanks for all your help in getting us off to a great startin Year 5.
