Wednesday 8th April - Today we created Easter bonnets. We began the day by painting the hats and then we added a variety of decorations. At the end of the day, we had an Easter bonnet parade to show off our creations.

Today, we learnt a dance to Blinding Lights By The Weekend. We challenge you to learn this routine over the Easter holidays. Who do you think performs this dance the best? The Children or the staff??

Daffodils 1
Children ,who have been into school this week, made daffodils to deliver to the local community. Following social distancing guidelines, we left them on the doorsteps of houses around our school- a little something to make them smile smiley​​​​​​​.

This year our topics are:


World War II

Climb every mountain 

Earth and Space

The Rainforest

What can we do about climate control?

Invaders and Settlers 


Home Learning

Homework for Year 5 is currently as follows:

  • Spelling practice using Spelling-shed.
  • Times- tables practice using TT Rockstars.
  • In addition to this, every half term the children will receive a homework activity sheet. From this, they can choose 5 activities which need to be completed by the last week of each half term.


The children will be tested on their times-tables and spellings every Wednesday.

You will have noticed that we have recently started to send home more Maths and English homework. This is not compulsory, but we do strongly advise children to have a go at as much as they can as it is aimed to consolidate their learning. 


Thank you for your continued support.

Spelling and times-tables practice

We would like to thank all parents/ carers for their continued support with TT Rockstars and Spelling-shed. The children have been very enthusiastic and we have seen some great progress made already! Below are the links for both TT Rockstars and Spelling-shed
