smileyWelcome to Year 5! smiley

This half term is flying by already- time does fly when you're having fun!


This week, the children have taken part in a debate during parliament week to discuss whether animals should or shouldn't be kept in a zoo. 


Congratulations to the Year 5 Athletics team. You represented our school brilliantly. 


Upcoming events to look forward to are:

  • Designing and constructing a moving vehicle in DT
  • The Christmas carol service
  • Making Alms in RE
  • A Capoeira workshop



Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned on a Wednesday. 

We would like to remind you that when homework is returned you have a chance of wining  rewards and prizes in Homeworkopoly.


Spelling Homework will also be sent home. Please help your child to learn their spellings. We will be asking your child to spell these words throughout the week.


Reading books will be sent home on a Friday. Please listen to your child read and ask questions about what they have read. In their book bag, there is a reading record to fill in. Books should be returned when they are finished and will be replaced.



Year 5 will have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday.


Please make sure your child's PE kit is in school. These can remain in school until half term.

The children were singing along to a story told by the instructor. The story was about being grateful for what we have today as tomorrow it may be gone.

Year 5 Debate during Parliament Week

Bonfire night

In English we have been studying narrative poetry. Below is a link to a number of videos of poetry performances and play scripts based upon 'The Highwayman.' The children have recorded them on green screens and added in new settings to match the changes within the narrative. Some of the children also went on to create film trailers based on 'The Highwayman.
