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!

Year One had a busy morning exploring inside St Peter's Church. Rev Rattenbury showed us around and we even had a baptism.
Mini beast hunt
The children in year 1 spent a busy afternoon searching the school grounds for mini beasts. We created different habitats for them to live in.
Tennis at Caunton
Years 1 and 2 had a lovely time at Caunton learning a range of tennis skills. Watch out for one of us at Wimbledon in the future!
The Queen’s Birthday
We read 'The Queen's Knickers' and designed our own knickers for the Queen. We wrote her a letter to say which special event she could wear them to attend! We also made some collage Union Jacks and Royal Crowns.
Year 4 orally retelling the story of ‘No Dinner’ to Year 1
