Poisonous Dart Frogs 2018 - 2019

Mr Ellis

Hello and welcome to Year 5B, The POISONOUS DART FROG'S page.

I am the Class Teacher, Miss Barnes, and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Phillips.

We hope you had a lovely summer holiday and ready for a new and exciting academic year. We are very excited about all the interesting and fun activities and learning we have planned for Year 5.

This term our theme title is called ‘A United Kingdom’. As part of our theme, we will be learning about iconic Myths and Legends from the UK and in History and Geography, we will be learning about where the Anglo-Saxon’s originated from and settled in England and much more.

Below is some important information. Please take some time to read carefully.


Our homework is set on Friday to be handed in on Wednesday the following week. There are tasks set online such as Bug Club, SPAG.com and My Maths. We also send home an extra piece of homework for those who cannot access the internet.

An English task, Spellings and a 'talking topic' are set and given out seperately.Children also need to fill out their reading records so either Miss Barnes or Mrs Phillips can have a look and a disccussion about what you have read. Children are required to read at home at least 3 times per week for 10-15 mins to a grown up or older brother or sister. Children must get their reading record signed by their listener. This may go toward the Reading Record award card.  

Children are also encouraged to complete 2/3 challenges on their reading challenge bookmarks.

All homework that is sent home is expected to be fully completed and to be done independently unless stated otherwise.

If there are any issues with homework not being fully completed on time, please see Miss Barnes or write a note. 


P.E takes place every Wednesday afternoon. This term our focus will be invasion games.

It is a legal requirement that children take part in P.E. each week therefore it is essential that they bring in the correct uniform.

* Black pumps (no trainers).

* Black shorts( girls are allowed to wear black leggings).

* Plain red T- shirt/ Red T-shirt with the school logo

Plain black joggers are allowed when P.E. takes place outside. (With no logos etc)

What are we learning this term?

We will be learning about where the Anglo-Saxon’s originated from and settled in England and much, much more.

We are that excited about our first theme that we have already got a school trip planned which is at Clitheroe Castle on Wednesday 13th September. This will be a full day trip and children will be leaving and returning to school during the school time table.
