Welcome to Year 5!
Please click on the link below to access our transition presentation for parents / carers.
We would like to tell you all about Year 5 and the exciting things we do. We will also be using Parenthub to keep you updated about some of the things we have been doing.
Year 5 - where effort will always bring reward
The Upper Key Stage Two journey begins in Y5 where our school citizens are developed into motivated learners able to take charge of their learning environment.
Throughout the learning, the core subjects of Mathematics, English and ICT link in to all the other areas.
Science, Humanities teach us about our world, while the Artsmark Gold principles underpin the creative subjects of Art, Music and Drama.
New languages, new perspectives and new physical achievements all add to the unique educational experiences in our multi sensory classroom.
We really hope this information will give you a whistle-stop tour of our fantastic work and we look forward to working together for the rest of the year.
Best wishes from all in Y5

We have seen some excellent examples of biography writing and we are so impressed with the research and effort that has gone into writing these! We are looking forward to seeing some more of them and hearing all about the inspirational people that the children have chosen to write about during our Zoom calls tomorrow. We have also been delighted to see some of the shops that have been set up for the 'Supermarket Sweep' maths challenge - it looks like great fun was had during this activity. Just what we like to see! Christiana also made a particularly tasty-looking menu for her Italian restaurant as part of today's maths activity and Oliver has been in the kitchen busy whipping up one of our favourites - a delicious spaghetti bolognaise. Well done, everyone!

Well, we can't believe it is Thursday already! We have had a super response to the activities over the last couple of days and are really excited to share the successes people have had at home. We hope you enjoy looking at everything and remember it is not too late to try anything we have put online. If you are inspired by one of the photos, just look back through the class page to find the activity and have a go over the half term holiday. Perhaps you could even refine your space capsule building technique or create your own Cessida and Cresstopher like Daniel B! Have fun.
We were delighted to see so many of you having fun with the Eggnaut challenge. There were some very inventive capsule constructions and parachutes. We hope you enjoy watching the videos. This week, people have also been enjoying the practical maths and Teacake Challenge from Mr Brogan as well as keeping up with their other work. Well done everyone, nearly half term!
Hello everyone and hope you had a good weekend. We have been sent some super photos over the last couple of days and couldn't wait to share them with you. Evangeline and Lucy sent in our first entries for Mr Brogan's Tunnock's Teacake Challenge and very tasty they look too! Remember you have until February the 10th to enter so it is not too late. George also sent in some photos from a past visit to the Museum of Science and Industry where there was a fantasic space exhibition which ties in beautifully with our science topic. Keep up the good work everyone!

Well, it is Friday again and we can't believe how quickly the week has gone. We have received more super work and we hope you enjoy looking at it. People have really enjoyed investigating our science topic, this week, and found out about all of the different animals who have travelled into space - even jellyfish! After the success of our social Zoom on Wednesday, we will be hosting a social get together every week. We all enjoyed the fun and getting to know about each others pets. A super range of riddles kept us all guessing, too! We hope you all have a great weekend and see you again on Monday.
Hello everyone! Good to see such an interesting selection of work over the last couple of days. Many of you have been enjoying the change from the White Rose maths and you have been using some very inventive ways of measuring. Hannah became a human ruler! We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow for the social Zoom. See you soon :-)

Happy Friday everyone and congratulations on making it to the end of another week. Once again, we have been delighted with all of the work sent in and the children's participation in the Zoom calls. It is great to see those at home and also hear about the extra activities you have been doing. The Chan family had great fun in the snow last weekend and have kindly shared the pictures of their snow fort - very impressive bit of DT there! Next week, we are trying to include a few extra well being activities for you to enjoy as a family and we would love to hear about how you got on. Don't forget to look after your furry friends too, if you have a pet. It's great to get out in the fresh air and walk the dog; furthermore, sitting and stroking your cat or guineapig is very soothing too. Miss Will has taken on a virtual 40 mile walk around Thailand with her dogs, Suzy and Basil, and they only have 6 miles to go! Mrs Fenney has also got into walking and is completing two long walks, from home, every weekend. Buster and Bella, the cats, are always pleased to see her when she returns. Feeding the wild birds is also rewarding at this time of year when food is scarce for them. Mrs Keeley had fun feeding some robins in her local park recently. We hope the weather is a little kinder this weekend so we can all go out for some fresh air and you can enjoy the well-earned rest. We look forward to seeing you again next week.
We have been delighted to see all your hard work you have put in creating your new animals. It has been very interesting to read all about these talented creatures.
Thank you for all the wonderful work we have received in the last couple of days. We are very impressed with the attention to detail, the careful following of success criteria and use of a formal style - David Attenborough would be proud! Miss Will is also thrilled with all of the science work.
We have received some more of your fantastic work from home. Including a poetry recital that we are pleased to share with you here.
We have had such a super response to the week's activities that we couldn't resist one last update before the weekend. Well done everyone and enjoy the rest this weekend.

Good morning and 'Happy Friday'. Well done to everyone for working so hard to complete this week's activities. We are very proud of all of your efforts and have been so pleased to be able to share them on the class page. Keep up the good work and enjoy the weekend.
Great to see everyone concentrating so well on the Zoom calls today. We enjoyed receiving the responses through the chat function. Miss Will is adding to our technical expertise by trying out Nearpod with her science lessons. We hope you enjoyed it.
Hello everyone and we hope you have had a good weekend. We have been trying to get out and walk in the fresh air to keep our fitness levels up. It is good to know the days are getting a little longer and we are starting to see new shoots appearing from the ground. We are delighted to see and share the latest pieces of work which have been sent in. Have a good week everyone.

It has been a great week for Year 5. We have enjoyed seeing all your hard work and all your pictures. From your English comprehensions and maths work to your maps of South America and your spellings you've all done great. Enjoy the weekend and we'll see you all next week.
Another great day of zooms. Thank you all for sending in your work. We've had some more inventive animals, space moon models and geography. We look forward to seeing more of your work today. The model moons were brilliant as well as the solar system. We hope you enjoyed making these brilliant models.
It has been lovely to catch up with you all today and see how hard you are working. I think we are all getting a little more used to learning at a distance and being more confident at participating in the lessons. Even a few pets are looking more informed! :) We hope you enjoy seeing the most recent items sent in.
We are delighted with all of the hard work which has been taking place at home. It is also good to see how well people are organising themselves for their Zoom calls. Sitting at a table, with your papers ready in front of you, makes the work much easier to complete. Keep up the good work, everyone. You are all superstars!

Here are a few suggested learning resources that the children can access at home.
An online version of the numbers game from countdown. There is no timer so the children can practise using their number knowledge in a fun way. https://nrich.maths.org/6499
A great resource which can help to improve the speed of calculations and knowledge of their times tables. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
This is a great resource for recapping your mathematical knowledge. Mr Brett's favourite page is the puzzle page. https://www.mathsisfun.com/index.htm
If you are ever stuck for what to read, or want to get into a new author, then this is a great website which allows you to read extracts from a range of authors.
Education city is a fantastic resource where the children can access a range of challenges and lessons from across the whole curriculum.
