Year 5 Blog

Good Morning parents, Thank you so much for bearing with us during these uncertain times. Our aim to provide some stability for all the amazing children in Year 5.

We recorded small messages for the children yesterday and uploaded them to Teams but it is important to us that all children can access these.






Happy New Year to you all.

Christmas Greetings 17.12.20

As it is almost the end of term, the wonderful Year 5 children have recorded some Christmas videos for you to enjoy. 


Here are the links: 



The Year 5 staff would also like to thank you for your support and encouragement and to wish you a safe and HAPPY CHRISTMAS!


8.12.20 Change of party date for Otters!

The 5 Otters class party will now take place on Tuesday the 15th December 10.30-11.30am.

8.12.20 In Topic the children are going to be working on their own Jurassic themed 'Survival Guide.' They will be using their research skills to compile each section.


The children have produced some incredible sketches of ammonite fossils.They worked in Conte (graphite) and focussed upon line, tone and texture. They have also started to construct 3-D ammonites using card, tissue paper and oil pastel. They have used PVA to give the fossils a final shine. Photo graphs are in the Photo Gallery star.

'In the Style of...' paintings on canvas    12.11.20

The children have now all finished working on their amazing seascape canvasses. They have been studying a variety of artists over the past few weeks and have produced a shared painting 'In the Style of....' one or more of those artists. They are currently on display along the Year 5/6 corridor and are accompanied by handwritten labels. 


Please have a look at the Year 5 Photo Gallery star and perhaps ask your child to show you the painting they worked on, and to simply enjoy the 'virtual gallery' together.


They have all done SO well and we are very proud of their artistic achievements!

Our new learning for this half term

Home Support

Many parents have asked how they might support their child at home. Please check the 'Our Learning' star and the 'Useful Resources' star in the Year 5 page. The teachers will endeavour to keep you up-dated with the content of the learning taking place in the classroom.

Please try to practice key/commonly used spellings, Times Tables and to read with your child.

Thank you so much for your support.

Thank you
Thank you to everyone who took part in the 'non single-use plastic' lunchtime yesterday. the children noticed the reduction in the presence of plastic but also discussed how difficult it is to buy food items which are not packaged using plastic.
