Spring Term 2019

Welcome to Class 5S and 5B!


Here are our Spring 1 newsletters which gives you an insight into what we are learning about


In Literacy, we are reading Pax by Sara Pennypacker. It is 'a heart-wrenching mastrerpiece' (The Guardian) which follows the journey of a boy and his pet fox as they attempt to find each other again after being separated.

We have already studied the red fox, looked at character traits and written letters from the perspective of the main characters. Future work will include diary extracts, debates, propaganda posters and writing the next chapters.


Forest School

Forest school sessions are on Wednesdays for 5B and Thursdays for 5S for the next two weeks (23rd/24th, 30th/31st)

Pupils should bring appropriate footwear and clothing to be outdoors during these sessions.


The Force is Strong with Year 5 this term as we discover the uses of forces and how they help (and hinder) us in our everyday lives. Sessions will be mainly practical including investigations of air resistance, magnetic pull and  water resistance.

Fire Safety

5B and 5S took part in a fire safety workshop, provided by the fire service. This included how to create an evacuation plan, what to do and what not to do in the event of a fire, road safety. They then wrote an information booklet.



Both year 5 classes are learning to play the ukulele. We began with open strings, creating notes, plucking and strumming, and have now moved on to playing chords. 


Useful Sites


This term 5S will have swimming lessons on Tuesdays until Easter (Congratulations to 5B for their superb progress in swimming in the Autumn term).
