Viking Day Letter


This week and next Year 5 are taking part in Bikeability. Here they are perfecting their skills on the playground before heading out on the local roads. 


Year 5 are busy baking for our stall at the Summer Gala. Please come along and support us on Friday from 3.00pm. A huge thank you for all your donations of ingredients! 


Today was 'Viking Day' in Year 5. You all looked fabulous in your costumes! We had a brilliant action packed day listening to Viking stories, creating characters and story mountains, writing in runes and handling Viking artefacts. 


We were lucky enough to have a cricket coach in Year 5 today! We are working on our fielding skills. 


Y5 wrote questions that they’d like to ask during a ‘hotseating’ activity. Our highwayman did a great job  of answering confidently and thoughtfully. 


Y5 have been doing drama today in Literacy. They created ‘freeze frames’ of scenes from The Highwayman poem by Alfred Noyes. There were some super expressions! Well done boys and girls you were brilliant after a nervous start! 


Y5 have been using their predicting and inference skills to work out what was happening on the images from The Highwayman. They had some great ideas and worked so well in groups.


Y5 chose these books from the Bookfair with the money that was left from 'Books for Breakfast'. Thank you once again for your help with this.


Y5 thouroughly enjoyed buddying up with FS2 and Y2 for Books for Breakfast. They had a great time sharing books whilst enjoying some breakfast treats: fruit, croissants, pain au chocolat and bread and jam! Thank you to all your grown-ups who sent in a contribution for the food. We’re going to choose a new book from our Bookfair. 


Wow! What a fantastic set of 'Story Spoons!' Y5 you have made us so proud, these are brilliant, you are so creative! Please come and have a look at these in the entrance hall this week! Be prepared to be impressed! 


Y5 have enjoyed using the Ipads to log onto Bug Club to do some reading. They have looked carefully in a book called 'Rainforests at Risk' to help them learn some new information ready to write some reports next week in literacy. Y5 you did a great job of using your VIPER skills whilst reading.


Y5 enjoyed working in teams to sort geographical statements into true and false. They learnt plenty of new facts and used world maps to help.


This week is National Storytelling Week. Here are Year 5 enjoying our class book 'Kensuke's Kingdom'. 

Welcome back Y5! We hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas break.

Happy New Year! 



Y5 enjoyed their Christmas party. They played several games, completed a Christmas quiz and had a visit from Father Christmas.


Two Y5 children have kindly donated some books for our class to enjoy in our free reading sessions. A very big thank you.


Y5 have paired up with FS2 today to do Christmas Crafts. They had a fabulous time making Rudolph hats ready to wear at the Christmas Dinner. School Council voted for a buddy session before Christmas and this was a great success! They also wore Christmas jumpers getting them in the festive spirit.


Y5 performed two fabulous songs for our school Christmas Concert: Can You Feel It  from the Amazon advert and Silent Night in German from the Sainsbury's advert.


Y5 enjoyed four fun filled days of baking with Miss Lunn! We made biscuits, buns, truffles and some yummy rocky road! They then sold these at the Christmas Fayre on Friday. 


As part of our History topic we have been learning about the Ancient Greeks. For homework Y5 had to design and make a Hoplite shield. Look at their fabulous creations below! 


Thank you for buying so many books at our recent book fair. With all your purchases we have been able to buy a lovely set of class books to read together. We chose ‘The Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ by Louis Sachar. We hope it’s going to be funny!


Thank you so much for all of your generous baking donations! We are very grateful.


Excellent efforts from Y5 today for our Children in Need pyjama day, thank you! 


Y5 have been investigating Roman Numerals using matchsticks.


Y5 have worked with FS2 to put on a separate Harvest Assembly for parents. We sang songs, did readings and sign language.


Y5 have used Polydron to make 3D shapes and to investigate their properties: faces, vertices and edges.


Y5 have been busy using nets to build 3D shapes! Some of the prisms were rather tricky!


Y5 have been busy creating self portraits in the style of Modigliani. We have used pastels to add colour.
