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!

In Maths this week we have been rounding numbers to 10,000 and even 1 million!

We used the rhyme; 4 or less, let it rest, 5 or more raise the score. SM

We had a fun lesson with Mrs Storey, where we mummified a banana! We have now covered it in sand as part of the process. JS

In Art we used special pencils to sketch drawings from observation TLS

In English this week, we have been writing letters of apology. One as Iron Man asking for forgiveness for eating up and destroying the farmer’s tractors. We also wrote one as Hogarth, apologising for trapping the Iron Man so cruelly. RK
