What a week!!


It's been a challenging week for us all with having to combat the ongoing effects of Covid-19, but the children have exhibited some lovely learning behaviours this week! The whole class continue to impress me with their resilliance, and I am continually proud of them all. 


In English, we have begun looking at the debate of deforestation, focussing on the Amazon Rainforest. The children have been looking at the pros and cons of both sides of the debate, and are in a good position to decide which side they agree with - If you get a moment, it would be worth asking them which side they are on, and why!


In maths, we have been learning about division and are using our knowledge of times tables to support this. We have been dividing 2 and 3 digit numbers, with and without remainders, using a variety of methods to consolidate our learning. This coming week we will be continuing with division, and finally moving onto looking at fractions - make sure TT Rockstars is being used as often as possible, as this will support our current areas of work immensely.



Have a great weekend everyone. See you Monday morning. :)


Mr Smith

Year 5 Makaton performance of 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas'

Still image for this video
Apologies this hasn't come sooner, but you may have heard from some of your children we had been learning 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' in Makaton, so that a wider audience could enjoy the year's festivities - this is our whole year 5 performance, and even if I do say so myself, I think its pretty awesome!!


SCHOOL TRIP - Tuesday 8th February 2022



We are pleased to announce our next school trip of this academic year! Year 5 will be heading to Kew Gardens, to get a hands-on look at some of the amazing aspects of nature that rainforests have to offer, and putting the knowledge of plants that we have gained in Science to the test. The children get a chance to get up close and personal with some of nature's most amazing plant-life, learn about ecosystems, and see how us as Human Beings can affect them, even in just the subtlest of ways - we're really looking forward to it!


Please ensure your child has returned their permission slip to the office as soon as they can.
