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 in assembly. 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. However, year 5 have a PE slot which is every Friday. 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 you’re the correct school uniform every day.


Work hard and have fun learning!

Class Blog ~ Tuesday 26th June 2018


This week in Maths, we are looking at reflection. We are looking at not only reflecting in one direction but also around a full co-ordinate grid. We are also putting this into real life contexts, using our reasoning skills! In English we are still reading the book Flotsam! It is a fascinating book that holds pictures – the journey of a camera. This week the children are going to write a setting description about one particular picture, all about an alien species exploring the ocean life.


In Geography, we are looking at how mountains are formed, especially Mount Everest. We have even found out that there are sea fossils on the summit of this massive mountain. Not only that, we even got the chance to write a newspaper report about the legend of Mallory and Irvine. In RE we are continuing to look at the religion Christianity. So far, we have looked at how Christians remain faithful, whilst also looking at the 10 commandments and how this relates to other religions. In Science we are still looking at the topic 'Scientists and Inventors', we are looking at the life of David Attenborough. The children are going to write a biography about this remarkable naturalist, having watched a few short clips of his fantastic shows – which highlight how wonderful and amazing our planet truly is.


Well done to our poetry slam finalists, you were all fantastic and were brilliant role models for The Phoenix Primary School and Nursery.
