Always Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Morpurgo Class



Teacher: Mrs Andrews

Teaching Assistants: Ms Nicholls, Miss Wakeham and Miss Symmonds

We are so happy to be working with the children in Year 5 this year and watching them grow and achieve together as a class. 


Term 3:

This term in Geography we will be exploring what a River is and the associated features that are found along it's course. In Science we will be studying the Earth in Space. In RE we will be exploring the question. 'What do different people think that God is like?' To finish off the term in our Design Technology topic we will be making soup using seasonal vegetable.

We will continue to have Mr Donovan weekly to teach us about the elements of music. 

You can find knowledge organisers and the topic map for this term by clicking on Curriculum Information. 



This term P.E will be on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday afternoons. In our outdoor sports session on a Tuesday we will be having a Rugby Coach to help us to improve our skills.  In Wednesday lessons we will be working with Mrs Butt and Mrs Andrews to develop our sports leader skills.  This is a really exciting opportunity as it will mean that we can then lead sports activities for other year groups in the school. 

Please remember to come to school in the correct P.E kit, this is still an important part of our school uniform policy.

You should wear: Plain black / navy shortsplain white t-shirt,  daps for indoor PE,  trainers for outdoor PEPlain black / navy joggers and a plain black / navy sweatshirt or ‘hoodie’ may be worn for cold weather outdoor PE in the winter. Please remember to pack socks for those who wear tights with their normal school clothes. 


Home Learning:

Please remember to read at home a minimum of 5 times a week and record this on the Go-Read app.  Reading is really important to help you with your learning so enjoy reading lots of different types of books and texts.  Chippenham Library is now open again so why not join and use this brilliant local resource.

Each week you will have home learning set on Friday and it is due in on Wednesday. If you need help with completing your home learning then I will be very happy to help you on Tuesday lunchtimes. 

This will be set on Google Classroom.


To find your Home Learning go to .

You will need to login with your school email and your password. 


Any questions or help that you need please email or ring the school office, message me on Google classroom or speak to me in person.  I am happy to support and help you in anyway that I can,
