Welcome Message


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!

Class Blog

Thursday 15th July 2021


Our final blog of the year! This year really has zoomed by. We have all worked incredibly hard in 5A.



In English, we are finishing the book Secrets of a Sun King. This week we have looked at the features of persuasive text, we have then written our own version using – a variety of figurative language, persuasive features and subheadings.



In Maths, we have been looking at converting different measurements, such as: mm – cm – km.

Also, we have been calculating and comparing volume!


Creative Curriculum

History – We are continuing to look at the new topic: Ancient Egypt. We have learnt about how Tutankhamun might have died and came up with our own theory.

Science – We are looking at Animals, including humans. We have learnt all about changes to the human body.

PE – We had a lovely afternoon for sports day. We ran the 100m sprint, had a throwing competition and tried our hardest to jump as far as we could

Art – We have created our own Egyptian scene, using pastels. We could choose sunrise or sunset and blended the colours that we used to create an atmospheric picture.


Have a great weekend and a wonderful Summer break
