Year 5 news...

Tudor Day

We had an amazing day with our very own Tudor Executioner! He taught us so much, as well as scaring us out of our skin with all of the things that he brought with him. We all agreed that life today is so much better!

Fitness Friday

We had a fabulous Fitness Friday. We all came to school dressed in our sportswear and did lots of fitness activities throughout the day. We started the day by carrying out a ‘Wake Up Shake Up’! Take a look below:

Anti Bullying Production

Altru Drama Company came to our school to put on a performance for Anti Bullying Week. The performance taught us all about respect. We learned so much and it was also very fun! Take a look at some of the pictures below:

Children In Need 2018

What a wonderful day we had for Children In Need. All the children brought in £1 to wear something either spotty or yellow. The children also had the opportunity to buy a cake at playtime for 50p. The children also had the chance to pay 50p to enter a colouring competition. There were three winners across the school. Thank you everyone for your generous donations.

Who is Beowulf?

This week in our Literacy and Topic lessons, we have been looking at the legend, who is Beowulf? – a mighty warrior who slayed not only a dragon, but 2 other hideous monsters too! Not only did we read the epic poem, but we acted parts of out and are now writing about too. It is incredible!

Remembrance 2018

Our Remembrance Assembly was very special. Each class did a little something to remember all the people who gave their lives for us today. We are so proud of all the children. Thank you everyone.


As part of our ICT work, we have been looking at how to stay safe online, while playing internet games or simply browsing.

This included writing a set of guidelines for users and watching a film about giving out personal details.

Circle Time

Year 5 have been discussing how they can keep their minds healthy and what makes them happy.

Votes For Women

As part of our Topic and P4C lessons, we learned about who the Suffragettes were and how they fought for the rights and freedom of women in this country.

We wrote speeches as if we were one of the Suffragettes, then performed them with passion.

Healthy Eating Week

As part of our healthy eating week, we made dips and dippers including a tasty tzatziki and a superb salsa. Unfortunately, not all of us liked it.
