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!
In Autumn 1 our question is ‘Is there anything out there?’
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, Mr Martin 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!

This week we used music and ribbons to create a firework dance. We built a bonfire with leaves and twigs and danced around it, using high and low movements, twirls and jumps. Finally we added music to make the sounds of different fireworks and made our movements match the sounds....
Teddy Bear Picnic
To celebrate the end of our memory box topic, we invited our teddy bears to an extra special picnic. We designed, made and evaluated a range of sandwiches and played circle games. We had a fabulous day.... we think our teddy bears did too!
