Our PE days are Wednesday and Fridays- please come to school in your PE kits on these days!



This week, Year 5 have been avidly discussing books! We have nominated, talked about, and voted for our favourite books, for our Year 5 World Cup of Books. There has been a brilliant array of fiction books nominated, with passionate debates over each of their merits. In our penultimate lesson, we wrote persuasive paragraphs to convince others to vote for their chosen book, between the final books 'Tom Gates' and 'Night Bus Hero'



Year 5 have been reading, analysing and imitating suspense stories, such as Little Vixen Street, since home learning began. This week, they wrote their own tension-filled short stories, including a variety of features from the genre, such as the rule of 3, short sentences for build up, and hiding details from the reader. They produced some incredible writing and have finished by making these into their own books!


Friday 4th December

Year 5 had a brilliant, Egyptian themed day today! We have focused on DT projects this morning, sculpting canopic jars from clay, designing and constructing our own 3D sarcophaguses and writing hieroglyphics on papyrus paper. This afternoon included Egyptian themed dance, where we learned to 'dance like an Egyptian', and finally we got to experience first-hand the mummification process! The children's efforts in creating and wearing Egyptian clothing was great to see and I'm sure they can tell you many facts about their learning from this term!

Today (01.12.20) we measured the weight of items in air and in water, and compared the results. We discovered that items weigh less in water. Perhaps you can ask Year 5 to explain why?
