They're out of this world! ⭐️ 


Well done to our 5C Star & Courtesy of the Term winners!

SPaG Detectives

After an inspiring assembly by Assistant Chief Constable Matthew Burton about his career in the police force, 5C were eager to complete some 'police work' themselves.

Stepping into the role of ‘Consulting Detectives’, the children have been using their SPaG knowledge to decipher clues and solve the mystery of the Chancery Lane robbery.

Introducing our 5C Pupil Voice Reps...


Summer Term 2021


As part of our unit on Forces, we designed and made parachutes to help us to understand  how air resistance works. We learnt that the larger the surface area of the parachute, the greater the air resistance and therefore, the slower the parachute will fall. 

Quidditch Day - 20th May

One Goal

We were excited to welcome Ben from One Goal to work with us today. We learnt about 'Team Spirit' and what we should do to work best as a team:  have a common goal, show respect, support each other and overcome challenges. Well done to Macey and Harvey who won the class trophies for their excellent team skills. Have a look below at photos of some of our fun, team-building activities.

What Have We Been Doing in Year Five?

5C have made a very busy start to the year and are already working hard.

In Maths, we’ve looked at the place value of bigger numbers, we can round numbers to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand and are becoming experts at addition. We’ve also learned enjoyed learning about Roman Numerals and are really good at recognising and writing them ourselves – we have been amazed at how some simple numbers are really long and complicated when written as Roman Numerals.

In English, we’ve been reading a lovely story called ‘Little Albatross’ who was in great danger from a killer bird when his parents flew out to sea to feed. We’re now writing our own stories of animal families who’ve had to rescue their youngsters from danger! We’ve been painting pictures to illustrate where and when our stories are set, using watercolours.

We’ve completed our RE unit of work for the half term on the theme of forgiveness and designed our own logos to help a charity promoting peace.

We’re learning all about the Anglos Saxons and Vikings in Britain long ago in our history topic. So far, we’ve discovered where all the different groups came from who took over Britain when the Romans left. We’re beginning to learn about the jobs that ordinary people did such as blacksmiths, weavers, leeches and wolf- watchers. Even young children had jobs to do every day (or night!) We’re looking forward to finding out about the houses they built and what life was like to live in a house full of animals!

If you are self-isolating at home, then you will find your school work via the 'Home Learning' tab in the 'Children' section and in our Year 5 Google Classroom.
