Year 5 Easter Visit to Pemberley House

The children in Year 5 all created a beautiful hanging Easter decoration for a resident of Pemberley House, following the success of our Christmas card project with them earlier in the year. Today, we had the chance to deliver them to the residents.

Similar to last time, we hand delivered the decorations to each resident and we had some really heartwarming and emotional reactions from many of them! We had some impromptu singing sessions in the lounge and corridors, at request of some of the residents. The children were really wonderful in their interactions and were welcomed into many of their rooms, smiled constantly and bought the most wonderful cheer to the residents.

Well done Year 5 – you made us very proud again!



Maths Homework

The children have worked incredibly hard this week during all of the tests they have been given. Because of this, homework will be for the children to play on TT Rockstars at least 3 times before next Thursday. We shall be checking to see that all children have done this on Thursday next week.

Well done to all children after the tests this week.

European Cooking

Last week, Year 5 had a fantastic time creating and tasting European delicacies with their groups. They were allocated a country randomly and then their first job was to research different foods from their country. As a group, they then decided which traditional food they would like to create, and then find a recipe which they would be able to do in school in a limited time. Then across the mornings of last week the fun began. With the help of Mrs Goodyer, Miss Rainbird and Miss Bennett, all the children created their masterpieces.

Lastly, a massive thank you for providing the ingredients to allow this project to take place. We couldn’t have done it without you.

We look forward to seeing you at our European food market on Thursday 4th.

Year 5 World Book Day

Here are some of the amazing photos from World Book Day last week. What a wonderful day we had. A huge thank you to those who were able to join us for breakfast too.

We are looking forward to seeing many of you at our European Food Market on Thursday 4th April – please remember to send in your reply slip if you haven’t already.

Year 5 Parent Event

To celebrate the end of our European Adventurers Topic, we will be hosting a European Food Market afternoon where there will be a fun family quiz, including food tasting rounds. This will be held on Thursday 4th April from 2.15pm-3pm. Two adults per child are invited to join us.

A letter will be coming home next week with more information but we wanted to inform everyone of the date as soon as possible.

Hope you can make it,

The Year 5 Team

Nature Collage

We took the opportunity of the sunny afternoons over the last few days, to develop our skills of collage. We used natural materials that we found ourselves around the school site to create collages of different things. 5GP and 5F were free to choose their images, however Miss Thomas set her class the challenge of creating a Greek mythical creature. See if you can workout what they are.

Holiday homework for this half term has gone home, and it’s based around our topic of Road Trip Around Europe. We look forward to seeing all of your projects when we come back.

Have a great half term

Year 5.

Year 5 Debating

Year 5 have had a fantastic morning debating today!

We are sure you have been hearing lots about Athens and Sparta, two of the city states from Ancient Greece times. The children have been really passionate about this learning and have already really impressed us by their discussion writing this week.

Today, the children picked a side – Team Athens or Team Sparta – and debated which city state was superior. The children were really quick witted with their responses and took huge risks by standing up in front of the whole year group to argue a point. We’re really proud of their team work too.


Merry Christmas!

We have had a very festive few days in Year 5 doing a variety of things, ranging from making snow globes to decorating biscuits. We have had a fantastic first term and we can’t wait to see what 2019 brings.

From all of us in Year 5, we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year.


Year 5 Trip to Pemberley House

We could not be more proud of our Year 5 children for the way in which they have demonstrated the Christmas spirit and brought pure joy to the elderly residents of Pemberley House.

In class, every child created a finger print Christmas card for a resident of Pemberley and wrote a heartfelt Christmas message inside. A group of children were then picked at random to deliver these to the residents with Miss Thomas and Mrs Poole today.

The happiness on the residents’ faces was incredibly moving as they shared conversations with our pupils. One resident even got out his harmonica and we all had a little Christmas sing along around his bedside! What a truly special afternoon!

We are so keen to continue this really special link with Pemberley House and hopefully see the residents more in 2019.

Year 5 Homework

There were lots of children who forgot their Reading Logs today, so here is an update on the Year 5 homework.

SPaG homework is pages 12 and 13, which is due in on Wednesday 19th December.

Maths homework is to go on TT Rockstars at least 4 times this week, which we would like done by Thursday 20th December.

There will be no homework set next week for over the Christmas holidays.

We hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Year 5 Team.
