Autumn 2 - 2021

Year 5 have really enjoyed this half term! We have learnt so much, enjoyed some fantastic trips and settled in to school really well.


In Literacy, Year 5 have been writing informal letters, character descriptions and various styles of poetry. Our class book ‘Cosmic’ has inspired most of our writing and Year 5 have produced some beautiful, thoughtful and detailed writing.


In maths, Year 5 have focussed on multiplication and division as well as area and perimeter. We had lots of fun measuring different shapes and finding out their area or perimeter using different methods. Year 5 have also been practising times tables every day and we have secured our 9 times tables and 7 times tables!


In Science, we had so much fun learning all about forces and we completed investigations into water resistance – which got a little bit messy! We collected the data and discussed what it showed us about water and air resistance. We finished our Topic with a picket line and discussed how mining has changed throughout the years.


Well done for all your hard work, Year 5!

Autumn 1 - 2021

Year 5 have had a fantastic start to the year so far! Everyone has settled in so well and we are having lots of fun learning about our new topics. It has been absolutely wonderful getting to know everyone. I can’t wait for a brilliant year!


In our first week, we have been introduced to our new topic – Down the Pit. We are learning all about our local history and we have even had some fantastic mining show and tell! In maths, we have been learning all about place value and we have had such a brilliant attitude to learning new things.


In literacy, we have been reading ‘Street Child’ which is all about a Victorian workhouse. We will be writing a fantastic diary entry from the perspective of the main character Jim Jarvis. Our class novel is ‘Coyote Summer’ – we already have some excellent predictions for the story!


In science, we are learning about space! We already know the planets that make up our solar system and we are even learning to dance like them in our PE lessons with Mrs Bywater. Our RE lessons have been fantastic and each pupil has displayed their faith in such a mature and thoughtful way.


We have had a fantastic start to the year and I can’t wait for more fun, learning and getting to know each other!
