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!

Patching Art Centre
Year 1 had a lovely time at Patchings Art Centre. We created African art and craft using the techniques of weaving and printing. Look out for our wonderful display in the classroom.

Sink or float?

A huge thank-you to the ladies at Ravenshead Library who put on a fabulous seaside art and craft morning for our Foundation children!
We love technology!
In F2, we love to explore different technology. We often use digital cameras, beebots, the interactive whiteboard, iPad, old mobile phones and talking whiteboards. We also use technology to help us with our baking, such as the microwave, popcorn maker and hand blender. However, today we did something even more...
The World Around Us
This half term, the children in Foundation have been learning all about the world around them. Last week, there was a VERY exciting event! 3 chicks hatched and we have been caring for them ever since. All of the children in F2 were able to watch the magical moment that one...
