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 5HN!



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!

5HN Class Blog 24th June

In English, we have comprehended a setting description about what Howard Carter saw when he arrived in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. The children then innovated part of the text, which I was particularly impressed with. They used a range of figurative language (personification, similes and metaphors) as well as expanded noun phrases within sentences, which have become increasingly more complex. They continued to plan and write a setting description for when Howard Carter uncovered Tutankhamun’s tomb, applying the above skills.


In Maths, we have been focusing on position and movement within our knowledge of shape. We have learnt about the difference between translation and reflection, identifying these using coordinates too.


In History, we explored primary sources of evidence (photographs and diary entries) relating to the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, using this to help develop our ideas in writing this week.


In Science, we have been extra busy this week, completing investigations, relating to forces, as part of Science week. The children have also been taking part in a competition to design a new lab coat of the future.


We finished our Art activities on Tuesday, by sharing what we had achieved in a whole school zoom assembly. The children thoroughly enjoyed all the activities they took part in, especially making their space buggies.


Another reminder about Head Boy and Head Girl in year 6 for September. If interested, the children have been asked to create a short presentation to outline why they would be the perfect candidate for this job. They need to be ready to present this to the whole of year 5 on July 2nd. The children will then be short-listed and have to present again on the 9th July so that we can all reach a final decision.


It has been lovely to welcome back our Year 5 children, who have been away at Hilltop. I have heard that they all had a fantastic time, though are very tired after a fun-packed few days. So make sure you rest up at home this weekend, ready to make the most of the last few weeks in year 5 before the summer holidays.
