Y5 Class WW2 assembly

Date: 19th Dec 2017 @ 4:15pm

This half term, we have worked very hard learning all about World War 2. We decided as a class that we would like to focus on the evacuation of children from city areas in our assembly. Y5 thought that this was the most relatable part of our learning and became one of the most interesting aspects of our WW2 topic.

The assembly was about two young children and their journey from a city to the countryside. It helped the other children understand what these children went through and sacrifices parents had to make. We loved performing, singing and educating everyone on this very important section of our history!

Diary Entries!

Date: 28th Nov 2017 @ 12:19pm

As part of our World War 2 topic, we have been looking at the lives of evacuees. We have found out that a lot of evacuees used to write in journals or diaries so we have decided to write some diary extracts as if WE were evacuees. 

Today's lesson involved researching the different features of a diary exctract and talking about how emotive language would have been used in a diary.

Suspense Story!

Date: 17th Nov 2017 @ 3:43pm

In English, Y5 have been learning about how to build suspense in their writing. We have explored a story called 'Francis' which is about a girl who rows her boat into the middle of a lake and hears knocks on the bottom of the boat. We have listened to how the narrator reads the story and found where the author has built tension. 

The first time we heard the story we turned the lights off and made the room really spooky. We turned our tables upside down and pretended that we were in the boat instead of Francis!



Maths Board Games 2

Date: 19th Jul 2017 @ 11:32am

Y5 children have been busy making Maths Board Games for the Y3 children in the past week. 

Keibhy Powell in Y5 said, " First we looked at different types of board games which gave us inspiration and ideas for our own. We then planned our board games in our books and wrote down the instructions. After that, we looked at the Y3 maths curriculum and this was how we found out questions to ask the children. We then made it in real-life and made 3d touches to them to make them look more appealing."

Joel Thompson in Y3 said, "I really enjoyed the board games. They are really fun and no one is playing unfairly. I've been learning a lot of things like 6 X 50 is 300 and it was easy to work out!"


The children have all worked very hard and had a great time this morning.

Maths Board Games

Date: 19th May 2017 @ 2:24pm

As a treat at the end of assessment week, the children played maths board games. These board games challenge the childrens' timestable knowledge. The majority are strategy games which makes the children think about other players answers and not only their own. They involve working out multiple sums at once and making connections using the inverse operation.

Anglo-Saxon Day

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 10:30am

We has an Anglo-Saxon expert came to our class and taught us how to make Anglo-Saxon shields and brooches.The children had a great day and all learnt a lot about the Anglo-Saxons.

The Elves and the Shoemaker

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 10:00am

As a whole school project, each class read the Elves and the Shoemaker and used this as a focus for their writing. In Y5, we decided to have a look at whether it was unfair or not that the Elves were working for the shoemaker. We had a discussion using P4C (Philosophy for Children) and came to the conclusion that the elves had poor working conditions, no pay, unsocialble hours and many more. A lot of the children noticed that this related to some of the articles that we have been looking at in our Values lessons. We produced news reports, newspaper articles and diary entries from the elves. 

Beowulf (Talk for Writing)

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 9:09am

We read the story of Beowulf as part of our Anglo-Saxon topic. We retold the story using actions and story maps which helped us to remember it. This meant we could concentrate on the quality of our writing rather than trying to remember the story.
