We have started our topic about plastic pollution and have started to learn about how it impacts sea life.  Today we have begun designing pieces of artwork to create a display to convince people to lessen their plastic usage.  In Math we have been learning to convert measurements and in English we have been learning about persuasive writing, ready to write some important letters.

Day 1 – Wednesday 14th November

We have had a great first day at Kingswood in Staffordshire.  We enjoyed exploring the centre and setting up our dormitories.  Dinner was fantastic (lasagne, vegetarian toad in the hole or spring rolls) and we took part in three evening activities – Bushcraft, Nightline and Trail of Mystery.  We are now tired and ready for a good nights sleep so that we are ready for a full on day tomorrow.

Dear Parents,
With effect from Monday 30th April, children in Year 5 will receive the following weekly homework, which must be completed and returned by the following Monday:

  • 10 spellings, which the children should learn and practise, writing them in sentences to show their meanings;
  • Reading comprehension;
  • Maths.

Multiplication and division facts will continue to be tested on a Monday, along with weekly spellings. Year 5 children are expected to recall quickly from memory all of the multiplication and division facts up to 12x. Please encourage your children to play TTRockstars three or four times a week to support this.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Pinney

It was fantastic to see all of the children coming into school with their new uniform and they all looked very smart indeed!

We had a very exciting first few days back. As part of their house groups, the children spent time investigating their named scientists on Wednesday; some children had an opportunity to carry out their own investigations.

On Thursday, we held a whole school art day, learning about different artists within our classes. Year 5 looked at the work of Henri Matisse, making links with our history topic about the Ancient Greeks and Greek myths. We read the story of Daedalus and Icarus and recreated one of Matisse’s pieces ‘Icarus’, using his technique drawing with scissors.

Friday was spent celebrating our transition to becoming a Primary school. The children took part in a variety of activities, including circus skills, dance, making hats and bunting. The day ended with a picnic in the hall.
