Kestrels September 2020

Welcome back to school! It has been a long time to be away from the school building and I know that the children will be ready for their return.

This term’s learning will be based around the topic of ‘Fight For Your Right’ and we will be looking at important social movements through History, both in this country and internationally. We will look at important historical figures and relating the past to the world that we live in today.

In Maths we will start the term studying Place Value ensuring that everyone understands the value of each digit in a number. On top of this we will be doing lots of Art, P.E. Science and much more.

Don’t forget that you can contact me through Class Dojo or just ring the School Office to make an appointment. I am looking forward to a wonderful term with Year 5!

Important Notes for parents

PE with the sports coaches will take place every Thursday morning. Please can you ensure your child has the correct kit (white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps/trainers) for PE. 


Contact/Class Dojo


At Abingdon Primary we use Class Dojo which is embedded within every year group. We use Class Dojo to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for teachers and parents to communicate.



At Abingdon Primary, each child has their own Times Table Rockstars account which they can use to help them learn the multiplication tables. It is essential that they use this every week in order to improve thieir skills and the speed of their recall.
