Welcome to Year 5!
HOMEWORK UPDATE: We now have an email address for the children to email their electronic homework to their class teachers. Please make sure the email contains the child’s name and the name of their class teacher.
An enormous well done to all the children who took part in this year’s production of Alice. All the cast performed brilliantly, they all worked extremely hard to learn their lines and songs. The choir sounded wonderful throughout the performances and the back stage crew helped to organise the show. Last but not least, a big thank you to the audiences who joined in with the performances as well. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part and we are all very proud of them.

After a relaxing Easter break, we are raring to go in Year 5! We are kicking off the Summer term with our ‘Meet the Greeks’ topic where we will be learning all about Ancient Greece and its mythical history. We will also be enjoying our topic work within our English lessons as we follow the Adventures of Odysseus and his encounters with the humanoid giant - Cyclopes - and the enchanting Circa amongst many other unusual mythical creatures.
Towards the end of the Summer term, we will be giving Richard Branson a run for his money as we take part in our Enterprise project. We will be planning, creating and selling to raise money for a cause of our choice.
The Spring term sees Year 5 blasting off to start their Space topic, "Out of this World!". We'll be looking at the Earth in Space and the forces which keep us in place. We will also be studying hydraulics and pneumatics by making space vehicles. Wish us luck!
We're off to a great start with our 'Going Underground' mining topic. Thank you so much for supporting your children to research and represent their local heritage so creatively!
Take a Bow!
The children of Key Stage 2 have been busy singing songs, making costumes and learning lines ready for our Christmas production the ‘Children of the World’. This year, the children have been learning about Christmas traditions from all across the world! We were taken on a journey of Christmas by some very interesting angels.
Have a look through our pictures to see if you can guess which country we were!
