At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A  weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within 5A!



In year 5 we are using Mirodo as an online platform to complete homework. Every child has a login and each week a Maths and English task will be set. Please find a handbook below which is a guide to getting started.



It is important that you read to someone at least 3 times per week but everyday if possible. You or an adult can record when you have read in your Reading Journal. Each time you read, you will receive a tick on your reading chart. When your chart is full up, you will receive a certificate. Once you complete your platinum award, you will get to choose a book to keep and take home.



Your PE kit should be in school every day as our sessions may change or may take place as part of a cross curricular lesson. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days, otherwise you will not be able to join in with P.E if you have earrings in.


Please ensure that you wear the correct school uniform every day.


Work hard and have fun learning!

Wow, we are finishing our last week of the Spring Term in Year 5!


In English, we have finished reading and watching the story of Macbeth. We have looked features of a poem, which was all about the spell cast by the three wicked witches. We all wrote our own potion, using the correct features of a poem, which has writing couplet, commas, semi-colon and a hyphen.



In maths, we have been looking at percentages. We have looked at how percentages link to fractions and decimals, as well as finding a percentage of an amount. In math revision this week, we have continued to revise long multiplication.  


Creative Curriculum

Geography – We looked at what we now know about National Parks.

PSHE – We looked turning negative thought into positive thoughts.

Science – We looked at what we now know about the topic Earth and Space.
