Welcome to Year 5

In Year 5, all of our classes are named after JK Rowling’s Harry Potter characters. Miss Cardwell’s class is Dobby (5DB), Mrs Jones’ class is Hedwig (5HW) and Mrs Finnis and Mr Elyard’s class is Dumbledore (5DD). We also have Mr Roberts, Mrs Calmic and Mr Hill working in our year group to help support our learning.

Our blog will become a digital scrap book of our time in school so make sure that you keep checking it.

Spies are us! As part of our work surrounding Anthony Horowitz’s Stormbreaker, our classrooms became a school for spies. The children became code breakers, detectives and gadget designers. We had such an action packed day and the children really looked the part!

From smashed eggs to plastic debates, we have had a brilliant start to Year 5. We are really proud of everything that the children have achieved and have been so impressed with resilience and positivity. This term we are studying multiplication and division as well as position and fractions within our Maths lessons. Our English lessons are taking inspiration from a ‘twisted fairytale’ version of Hansel and Gretel. So far the children have been really enjoying this. One highlight has been the property adverts that the children created for the gingerbread cottage within the story. Elsewhere across the curriculum, we are covering the Vikings, Video Editing, Football and William Morris. We hope you enjoy the photos that we have attached and we look forward to updating you with more as the weeks pass by.
