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 year 5!



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!

Friday 16th September

5I Class Blog


It has been another busy week for the whole of year 5!


In maths we have been investigating place value. We started the week by comparing and ordering numbers to 10,000 before moving onto 100,000 and 1 million. Some children even managed to use numbers to 1 million alongside roman numerals.  


Year 5 have continued to practise their problem solving skills while using our Reasoning Rockstars questions too - Year 5 have enjoyed a new challenge. Mr Irons, Miss Owen, and Mrs Merritt have been trying to create some challenging new questions!


In English we have continued our focus book for this term – The Iron Man

We have planned and written our own letter of apology, after the iron man ate all of the machinery and damaged the hoes of a local village. Reading through them the year 5 teachers are confident that we will see lots of excellent writing this year!  


We have begun looking at our history topic – Ancient Egyptians. Our enquiry question is – What happened to the boy behind the gold mask?  This week we investigated what was found in Tutankhamun’s tomb!


We have begun our new science topic – changing materials. Year 5 began by investigating the different properties that materials can have.


In PSHE, year 5 have been looking at the UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child). The class discussed what these articles meant and the responsibilities attached to them.


Have a good weekend everyone!
