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!

Class Blog 5M  2.12.21


This week in English we have been writing instructions to make a potion and then instructions to make a den. We were able to imagine ourselves a Wildthing form our class book JC

In Maths we have been continuing to use bus stop method to solve division calculations. JS

In Geography we looked at a farmer called Derek who lived in the Cambrian mountains. We explored how he made a living and what types of problems he may face. For example; he had to send off sheep in the winter as the grass didn’t have the right nutrients for the animals. Also he had to open a bed and breakfast as he wasn’t making enough profit. CS

In our PSHE lessons we have been discussing important topics such as racism and bullying. We identified what this might look like and how it might feel. We talked about how we could help within those situations.
