Weekly PE lessons will take place each TUESDAY.

However, pupils should bring their OUTDOOR PE kit to school every Monday and take it home each Friday; PE kits will then be available if there are any changes to the normal timetable.



Personalised spellings and Times Tables will set each week on a FRIDAY.

Assessments of these will take place the following Friday. 

Learning times tables is also an ongoing part of homework.



Children in Need Week

As part of Children in Need week, we have been been focusing on one of five different aspects each day in our Personal Development lessons: Connect, Take Notice, Get Active, Be Curious and Give. We all then celebrated Children in Need on Friday 13th November by making a donation to wear our spots and bright colours for our non-uniform day. Thank you to everyone for supporting this very worthy cause.


We learnt about the importance of mindfulness and meditation.

We enjoyed completing some mindfulness colouring activities whilst listening to relaxing music.

Here we are showing off our spots and bright, colourful clothing for Children in Need!

A perfectly observed 2 minute's silence today...

Year 5 Curriculum Overview Autumn Term

We are Historians

Images of our historical 'Hot seating' session in which we wrote 'open' questions we would like to ask to both a Viking warrior and a monk who were present at the Viking raid on the monastery at Lindisfarne. The children then acted out their responses when asked them to help us understand how it must have felt for both sets of people being there.

We are Musicians

We really enjoyed listening and appraising in our music lesson which focused on Bon Jovi's rock anthem, Living on a Prayer. After finding the pulse and tapping the rhythm to the track, we discussed our initial responses to the song - likes or dislikes, the way it made us feel, what we heard etc. We then used some key music vocabulary as headings to focus our listening and generate a more in-depth discussion about what we'd heard. Our next activities were some musical games during which we clapped back some rhythms and warmed up our voices before beginning to learn to sing the song ourselves. Have a look at the jottings we made from our discussions and watch us as we clap our rhythms. Be  sure to look out in the future for a video of us singing along to the track to see if we reach rock star status in the next few weeks!

We are Scientists!

They're growing!!

We are Readers

We have been working on our comprehension skills by looking at a poem about the Vikings. After reading the text, we identified and discussed tricky words in order to broaden our understanding of the poem and also to extend our vocabulary. We then identified key words in the questions and highlighted key information in the text which would help us when writing our answers. These are skills which we will use throughout the year when working on reading and comprehension activities.

We are Scientists

As part of our ongoing work in Science, we have been planting wild grass seed. We are keeping our fingers crossed that they will germinate!

Hello from the new Year 5!
