Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to Year 5 from Mr Rich and Mrs Haywood.
In Upper Key Stage 2 we are now preparing ourselves to be role models to 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: ‘Life is the Pits!’, ‘Alchemy Island’, ‘Spectacular Space’, ‘Invaders and Settlers’, ‘Resplendent Rainforests’ and ‘Hola Mexico’. 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 foudnation 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 Rich, Mrs Haywood and the children promise to work hard so that we are able to be the best we can be!
Keep checking out our page to see what we get up to!

The Great Greek Bake Off!
Mrs Hatton and Mrs Haywood had the opportunity to act as 'Bake Off' Judges today as the children in Year 3 practised their culinary skills. The children baked pitta bread and then presented their dishes for judging by adding other Greek treats like tzatziki, olives, chickpeas, chopped carrots, peppers and cucumber....
Gods and Mortals
We thoroughly enjoyed our topic launch. We experienced a full Spartan training session with 'Warrior Haywood' and learned the Greek alphabet with 'Philosopher O'Brien'.
KS2 Arts Award Discover
The children in Key Stage 2 really enjoyed meeting "Sian" our Artist for the day. They completed a variety of activities, including: analysing art around the school, questioning an artist and finally creating their own fabulous piece of artwork. What a great day! Thanks Sian.
The World Came to Our Place Today
Year 3 have had a whistle-stop around the world trip with George, Flora and Grandpa! By investigating the contents of Mrs Hatton's shopping basket they have learnt a lot about different foods and where they have come from around the world. They were amazed to find just how far some...
You’ve Got Mail!
We thoroughly enjoyed accepting Fairy Godmother's request for help. We have come up with lots of advice to send to the inhabitants of the enchanted woods.
