Celebrating Our Success

In Year 5, we love it when we can share successes and achievements. 

 Well done to Archie and Ruby for receiving the year 5 certificate for showing support around school.


Maths in Year 5.

This half term we are studying place value and looking at the importance of knowing what the value of each digit is in a 6 digit number. To help with this, we use concrete materials such as place value counters.

English in Year 5.

Picture the scene..........

Evacuated from London, David and Tucky feel like the war is a long way away from their new life in the Devon countryside. Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing miles away brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace.

Welcome to Friend or Foe.

One of Michael Morpurgo's finest reads which has been capturing the imaginations of so many children studying this period in time.

We will spend time up until Christmas studying this book in depth. Letters and diary entries will be some of our written outcomes along with many others.  We will introducing relative clauses and adverbials to add cohesion to a piece of writing. The use of dialogue,  where needed,  to enhance a text by using the correct punctuation.



Natural Disasters!

In year 5, we are currently researching the question 'Why do natural disasters happen?' In art, we have been looking at the artist Nick Rowland and his abstract style of painting. Using this style, we are creating our own volcanoes.

Inspire Session

Thank you to all of the parents in 5 who joined us for our DT Inspire Workshop. Children and parents did a fantastic job creating an earthquake proof building. We all had a great time learning about the features of an earthquake proof building and applying them to our own building.
