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 5B!



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. 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!

Thursday 21st January 2021

Another busy week for those in school and a huge well done to all those who have been accessing home learning on J2E, attending our 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 continued with the Ancient Greek Myth, Theseus and the Minotaur.

 This week we explored the reasons as to why Theseus left Ariadne stranded on an island after she sacrificed everything to help him. We wrote a letter from Theseus, using complex sentences, to explain why Ariadne had been left behind.  



In maths, we have been learning how to divide using a formal method - including dividing

4 - digit numbers with remainders.



In science, we have continued with our topic ‘Space and Earth’. This week we have memorised the order of the planets using an acronym and have deepened our learning by developing our understanding of moons, asteroids, meteorites, meteors and comets.



In PSHE we had a lively debate regarding how much different professions are paid and compared this to how much each occupation contributes to society.



In history, we ordered key Ancient Greek event on a timeline.


Morning and afternoon Zoom sessions have now been operating for over a week and are proving to be a success. If you are working from home, please make sure you log on to these sessions so that you can find out more about the work that you are expected to do. It is vitally important that you complete the work we set you so that you can work alongside what we are covering in school.


If Well done to 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!
