Class 5

Welcome to Class 5!

Welcome back Class 5.  I hope you have had an enjoyable Easter holiday.


This half term, we are going to continue to learn about Volcanoes and Earthquakes; you can find more information on the topic web below.  Also, this half term, we will be learning about Life Cycles as part of our Science topic.


PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays with Miss Perkins. Please ensure that you have your labelled PE kit in school on PE days. Please make sure that your school uniform is also fully labelled. 


Each Thursday, Class 5 will be able to use the MUGA at playtimes. Children will need to bring a separate pair of trainers to school to change into if they wish to use the MUGA. Children will be unable to use the MUGA on their allocated day if they do not have a separate pair of trainers to change into. 


Reading diaries and books must be in school every day.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

In art, we studied the work of Hokuasi Katsushika: The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Inspired by his work we used water colours to create our own versions. Finally, we added lines and patterns with thin pens to show the finer details of our pictures.

Year 5 have worked extremely hard this week: they were awarded trophies for the most 'spots', TTRS and for attendance.

World Book Day - 2nd March 2023. Look at our hats! Can you identify the story each hat represents?

March 1st 2023. Year 5 enjoyed sharing what they have learnt about Newark in the English Civil War in their class assembly.

As part of our history topic, Year 5 visited the National Civil War Centre in Newark. We considered the challenges faced by people living in Newark during the sieges, looked at Newark's historical buildings and learnt about different types of soldiers.

Year 5 have written and filmed advertisements about amazing new inventions. The first is a time-travelling rain hat...

As part of our geography topic about North and South America, Year 5 enjoyed a day learning all about Mexico. In the morning, children competed in ‘The Great Mexican Kahoot Quiz’, before filming a documentary about Mexico. Then in the afternoon they prepared and tasted some traditional Mexican dishes: salsa, enchiladas and guacamole.

Day 1 - Year 5 York Residential. We visited Barley Hall and took part in a Tudor medicine workshop, before checking into the Youth Hostel.

Day 2 - York Residential. After walking along the river into York, we visited York's Chocolate Story, where we learnt about how chocolate is made and created our own chocolates. Then we learnt about the Vikings in York, when we visited The Dig and the Jorvik Centre.

Day 3 - York Residential. We visited beautiful York Minster before walking to the National Railway Museum.

Year 5 have designed and created a clay dragon eye, inspired by the mythical beasts in Beowulf. They are very proud of their work.

A Funny Thing Happened..... (Reprise)

On Friday 1st April, we worked in teams to decipher clues and use a map, to solve a puzzle.

w/c 21.3.22 This week in Science we learnt about day and night and how this is due to the Earth's rotation on its axis. We made sundials to measure the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky.

Year 5 enjoyed dressing up as a word for World Book Day.

Year 5 really enjoyed their trip to the National Civil War Centre on Tuesday 22.2.22. During the day, they learnt about what it would have been like living in Newark during a siege. They found out about different types of armour and explored the key Civil War locations in Newark.

Enablers Day - The theme for our 'Enablers Day' was saving the planet and Year 5 focused on perseverance and independence. We used abstract nouns to write an acrostic poem about how to save our planet. In the afternoon, we performed this in a special assembly. In Maths we used perseverance to explore all possibilities and work systematically.
