Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to Year 5!
In Upper Key Stage 2, the children are now preparing themselves to be role models for the younger children. We have a ‘can-do’ attitude towards our work and learning.
In Year 5, we love to learn. Our teacher and teaching assistant ensure that our learning is fun, but focussed on helping us to be the best we can be! Marvellous Maths, Exciting English and Terrific Topic is the order of each day, with thrills and spills along the way!
We will be exploring lots of exciting, engaging and interesting cross-curricular topics this year. These include: 'Vanishing Rainforests', ‘Life is the Pits!’, 'Stargazers’, 'Enough for Everyone' and ‘Invaders and Settlers’. Some of these topics will have a Creative Homework project linked them, giving us the opportunity to show our interests, strengths and talents.
Regular reading at home and school will be encouraged - after all reading is the foundation for all other learning to take place from. We will also have an emphasis on learning times tables and the spelling of key words.
Mr Summers, Mrs Haywood and the children promise to work hard so that we are able to be the best we can be!

National Mining Museum
Year 5 really enjoyed visiting the National Mining Museum. It was a fantastic experience, as not only did they get to feel what it was like a be a Victorian child they learn so many interesting facts. https://www.nmrs.org.uk/mines-map/coal-mining-in-the-british-isles/collieries-of-the-british-isles/coal-mines-england/

A Fabulous Spring Term in Year 4!
We've been very busy this term in Year 4! A Roald Dahl dress up day, trip to Castleton and making a testudo formation with our own Roman shields yesterday! Here are some photos from this exciting term!
Scientific poo making!
The Year 4s had a very messy morning, making gruesome poo and then eating it! Don't worry-they were made with chocolate and biscuits and were actually very yummy!
Our topic of Ancient Egyptians is now over, although we did go out with a bang in our fantastic Family Assembly! Mrs Wilson and I are extremely proud of the Year 4's for their confidence and brilliant acting skills. We have learned a lot about the Ancient Egyptians this term...
