Year 5 Assembly- Hola Mexico

Year 5s from Redwood and Cherry class performed their ‘Hola Mexico’ assembly this week. The performance included a variety of things that have been covered in the current topic. There were interesting facts about Mexico that the children had learned in Geography, information about Mexican culture, such as Aguas Frescas fruit drinks and the Mexican hat dance. The children also read out instructions for how to play the Ancient Mayan ball game and showed off their Frida Kahlo inspired portraits and Day of the Dead festival masks. They also performed a selection of songs including ‘La Cucaracha’ and ‘La Bamba’.

“The year 5s were extremely enthusiastic and soaked up lots of interesting information about Mexico. They all showed great confidence to perform the assembly in front of the school and to parents. They all had smiles on their faces and sang the songs brilliantly. The songs were extremely catchy and will stay in your heads for a long time. Thank you for your support with the costumes.”

PE days will be Mondays and Tuesdays. Please have your PE kit in school. 

Home learning and spellings are set on Wednesday and are due back on Monday. Please complete your English and maths work at home and find time to practise your weekly spellings.

Ensure you have a water bottle and a coat in school every day.



Home learning and spellings are set on Wednesday and are due back on Monday. Please complete your English and Maths work at home and find time to practise your weekly spellings

Homework will be uploaded to this page each week, in case of lost sheets.


Other ways to help at home:


Children should be encourged to have an enjoyment of reading.  They can use their imagination and lose themselves in a book. Therefore, there should be time at home each day for children to be read to and to read independently. They should be encouraged to read a variety of genres including fiction, non-fiction and poetry and asked questions about what they are reading. This will develop their predicton, inference, summarising skills as well as improving their knowledge of vocabulary.  


Here are a selection of websites which can help you and your children.

Maths Frame

(Some games are subscription only, but there are plenty of free games and activities to help you practise maths skills)


Corbett Maths Primary

This is a great website as it has lots of short videos which explain key maths concepts and have lots of practice questions to try.


Spelling Frame

Again, some subscription access only games, but there are some free games/word lists which allow you to practise your spellings in lots of different ways.


The School Run

This has lots of information for parents which explains useful terminology.
