Churchfields Primary School

Olive class

Welcome to Olive Class. Your teachers this year are Ms Gundry-White, Ms Power and Mrs Baldwin.

We are learning

This term in English our class text will be Kenzuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. Your child’s knowledge of language, gained from stories, plays, poetry, non-fiction and textbooks will increase their fluency in reading and writing.

In Maths this autumn we are looking at Numbers to 1000000, multiplication and division, length and Measure.

In our Topic lessons we will be finding out about the Tudors. We will be exploring the importance of the changes made by the Tudors and who the Tudors were.

In Science, we will be looking at Animal lifecycles, sexual and asexual reproduction and plant lifecycles. We will grow new plants from seeds, root cuttings and bulbs and observe the changes in animals over a length of time.


Our spelling test is every Friday morning (all spellings are stuck in the homework book).

Daily Reading is to be recorded in reading records.

The Autumn Term homework challenges will be stuck in their homework books. Books should be handed in on a Wednesday for marking.

All homework books will be returned by Friday and should be handed in by Wednesday.

Learning times tables is still an essential focus for this year and the children should practise these at home and at school. Hit the Button is an excellent app/website for this.  


Please ensure your child always has a PE kit in school. Olive class have PE lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays. 

Swimming for Y5 will start in the Summer Term on Monday afternoons.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at

If you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick your child up is the best time. 

Thank you for your continued support.
