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!

A fresh start to a new half term! Well done to those that are consistently engaging in work online on J2E, attending zoom meetings and completing home learning work packs.

For those at home, please remember to upload your work back onto J2E or email it to the Year 5 email address for feedback and house points!



In English, we have read and watched a clip of the witches in Macbeth. We have looked at a description of one of the witches within the famous play, written by Shakespeare. We also have written a character description using, fronted adverbials, similes and high level vocabulary.



In maths, we have been looking at subtracting fractions. We first looked at fractions with the same denominator. Then, we moved on to different denominator and challenged ourselves with mixed fractions!  



We have been looking at the structure of the Earth.


Creative Curriculum

This week we have been starting our topics to say what we know.  

Also, in Music we have been looking at different musical instruments.

During our Art and DT lesson, we have designed our own musical instrument.



Well done everyone and remember, if you do have any queries, you can call the school office, contact us using the J2E message service or email the year group email: We will try our best to help!
