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!

In English and Maths we completed half-term assessments to identify the progress the children have made and to highlight areas that we may need to revisit to consolidate learning.

In history, we continued to look at our topic of the Shang Dynasty, specifically the importance of the discovery of the tomb of Fu Hao.

In science, we completed experiments to separate different mixtures based on the properties of materials. Paperclips were separated from flour using magnetism, sand was separated from water using filtration, salt was separated from water using evaporation and rice was separated from flour using sieving.

For Black History month we learned about the life of Walter Tull. We wrote a letter home to explain what life was like in the trenches during the Great War.

We also learned about Claudia Jones and how she began the Notting Hill Carnival.

In art we made carnival masks using a range of materials.
