Who fancies a challenge? We have only recently finished our Space unit and I would like to invite you all to participate in my competition. You have 2 days to create a space rocket from any recycling you may have in the house. Be as creative as you like. You will need to email a picture as an attachment to our year group email. A winner will be chosen by Leo on Friday and a shout out will be given on our class page! Good luck!

We know that the current situation is challenging and ensuring our children work during the day isn't straightforward. If you are struggling then have a go at some of these challenges instead. Don't forget to take a picture and email it in!

Home Learning Timetable

In case of school closure, please use the this class page for direction regarding children's work. Please encourage them to do as much as they can as they will benefit hugely when we return. All children have passwords for PurpleMash, Emile, and TT Rockstars in their home reading journals.


Work will start to be added over the next few days.



In art, we have focused on our drawing skills and have drawn a range of food. Here are some examples. I am sure you will agree that they are amazing.

This half term our science unit is all about reversible and irreversible changes. Here are some pictures of an experiment we conducted with bicarbonated of soda, citric acid and red cabbage liquid. We discussed what evidence we had to prove that a reaction had taken place.

Welcome back for another year of exciting learning. Here is a copy of our yearly overview of topics.

Welcome back to the Spring 2 - it looks like we're going to be busy!

Weekly Timetable

Key Learning (Spring 1)

Please remember that supporting your child's learning is key to their success. Encourage your child to always do their best and be proud of their achievements. Help them with their daily reading, learning of times tables and weekly homework tasks- and make time for the fun things: visits to the park; borrowing books from the library; going to a museum or an art gallery; baking and making things together... 


Please get in touch if there is something which is troubling you, or your child - however trivial it may appear.


Many thanks


Year 5 have been quite busy lately with a variety of exciting activities including creating tasty biscuits as part of our Design and Technology work; producing an excellent Class Assembly which included a recital of 'The Highwayman' and two pieces on the xylophone. Additionally, we are working very hard on our Maths and English work so we can evidence that we are making good progress with our individual targets.

Our biscuit creations - hugely enjoyed by our Year R 'seeds'
