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!

5L Class Blog

This week was SAT week for our Year 6, therefore we spent our mornings in the hall completing assessments.


In English, we read chapter 12 of our book. Solomon had to return home to get his father because his grandfather had fallen ill. Because the bus broke down on the way, Solomon decided to run all the way home. For writing this week, we wrote a journey narrative through a forest. We used varied sentence lengths, punctuation and language to create suspense in our narrative.


In maths, we worked on adding and subtracting decimals within 1. We discussed how we can use our place value knowledge to add and subtract decimal numbers with 1. Next, the children were introduced to the concept of complements (two decimal numbers that add up to make 1 whole). Also, they learnt how they can use their number bonds knowledge when working with complements.

Well done 5L!
