Welcome to Year 5!

After a tricky 2020, the class appear to be raring to go, with lots of book-based learning taking place.                  

The autumn term kicked off with work featuring the best-selling book “The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse”

and segued into learning through that super-exciting story, “The Nowhere Emporium”.


Now that we are in the spring term, our current learning, both in school and out, is based on the book ‘Roman Diary’.                                         




For the next half-term, we will be exploring the rainforest via the classic children’s book, ‘The Lorax.’                                                    



Hopefully, all children will be properly back in school by the commencement of the summer term, when perhaps we will finally be able to fully embrace school life once again. The summer term is always the nicest part of the year for the children and I am optimistic that we will be able to organise a couple of trips, both to consolidate learning and, more importantly, to have fun as a class once again. So that’s something to look forward to as we enter our darkest days yet: bring on the long-lasting, sunlight-infused summer!




As you know, the school subscribes to a number of websites which can be used to support home learning and all children have logins and passwords to use these websites or apps:


Finally, don't forget to ask your child if they can tell you how to keep themselves safe when using any device to be online. Thanks to the annual Safer Internet Day activities, the children should be well-versed in all the tricks and tips needed to help them to keep as safe and sound as possible! If you are unsure of how to help, please contact us or alternatively, why not check out as a starting point for all things e-safety related?
