The Year 5 team for this year is Mr Larkin and Mrs Brewer The Curriculum Booklets, giving details of what the children will be learning each half half, can be found below, along with the half term’s homework grid and spelling lists. Homework at Forty Hill At Forty Hill we believe in developing the whole child, academically as well as spiritually, morally, socially and culturally. We understand that some parents like lots of homework whereas others wish for none at all. In order to find a ‘best fit’, we publish our homework grids on a half termly basis (see above), giving a range of activities for children to do, both independently or with adult support. One homework activity needs to be completed each week and handed in every Wednesday morning. This will be acknowledged by the teaching team. Remember to choose at least 1 activity from each row over the half term. Remember to be as creative as possible! Please see your teacher or teaching assistant if you are unsure about any of the activities. Some parents have requested additional maths homework to be provided by us and so we have published suggested workbooks for each relevant year group (as well as the answers) below. This additional optional homework does not need to be submitted and should be used as a tool for supporting your child at home if you wish. Updates from Hudnall Park 
Friday Morning – Tired…  But they slept well! Campfire last night and some fun and games before a later start this morning and a leisurely breakfast. See you later parents!
Thursday evening – Good evening! We have had a fun-filled day of activities. With a drizzly start, we started off with archery followed by a very challenging assault course at the top of a hill overlooking beautiful countryside. We enjoyed watching the red kites in the big sky in between the showers! After a picnic lunch, we went deep into the forest to a rope course through the trees, then spent the rest of the afternoon creating amazing natural sculptures. We have enjoyed a lovely roast dinner and are now getting ready for a camp fire this evening. Everyone happy and well!
Thursday morning – Greetings from Hudnall Park! After an exciting walk across the estate yesterday evening, we formed a giant FHS on the side of the hill and then all ran down it together! We had a yummy tea of fish and chips or Macaroni cheese. We had a ‘lively’ late night followed by a very early 5am start this morning – so a few sleepy heads this morning (think that might just be the teachers!). We enjoyed a cooked breakfast this morning and are now heading out for a busy day of activities. More to come later…
Wednesday afternoon – After pushing a broken down car out of our way, we have unpacked and spent the afternoon playing problem solving games in our three teams: Thunderbolts, Chilli Heatwaves and The Sparkling Flames. After refreshments, we then went on a hike across the 90 acres of beautiful countryside enclosed in the Hudnall Park estate. We even saw a herd of deer grazing!
