Hello year 5 it's me Mrs Winder, I'm missing you all and have something exciting to show you. We had a wasps nest in our bike shed, we had to remove it because they get bigger and bigger then the rest of the wasps come to live in them. It was near our backdoor so it had to go. The photos are below and I have kept it to show you when we are back at school. See you soon, stay safe, stay alert!

Mrs Winder

Hello year 5, wow what a strange 2 weeks we have all had.  The Tower photos were amazing and we can't wait to see your photo's for the next competition. We are pleased you are all working hard with your home learning packs and Purple mash, we know how different it is for you. Both Mrs Rason and myself have children at home too, who are having to home learn so we are all trying our best. We really miss you and can't wait to get back to class, we are all so very proud of you and keep up the good work. Miss Thompson, Mrs Winder, Miss Marriott & Mrs Rason.

Working Hard from home

Just a quick one from Miss Thompson.

We have got a brilliant class! I am so proud of all of the efforts that all of you have gone to. You have all got such lovely manners when emailing or speaking to me on the phone. I have added more tasks on Purple Mash, as I know that some of you had nearly completed them. Remember that I am hoping to see all of your projects by tomorrow. I have already had a couple - they were to a high standard.

We are all missing you. I will be ringing around everyone again tomorrow.

Thank you for keeping yourself busy and safe.


Here are the links to the Computing Lessons:









Have fun using them smiley

We have had a busy and exciting start to this term!


Last week was our first Water Safety lesson. All of the children had to swim in their clothes. They found it a lot harder than they were expecting - but still managed to put lots of effort in. We have got our final Water Safety lesson this Wednesday. After that, we will try to achieve at least 25 metres.

We were visited by Catherine, from The History Van, who taught us lots about the Vikings and how they lived. This made us excited to get stuck into our topic - The Vikings.


In Numeracy, we have looked at different kinds of graphs and the kinds of information recorded in them. This week we are focusing on fractions.


In Literacy, we have written and performed play scripts. We imagined that we were part of a Viking battle and wrote diary entries about it.


We have been learning to play the recorder. We are pretty good at playing the notes, A, B and G. We have started to look at the note E. Learning to play the recorder is great fun and incredibly loud! Our aim, by the end of the year, is to put on a performance for our parents to enjoy.





In Maths, we have been converting mixed fractions to improper fractions, multiplying whole numbers by fractions and we have been practising using all four methods.

In Literacy, we have been looking at a range of Myths. Today, we planned ready to write on Friday.

We have also completed our poppy wreath. We will post a photograph of it on Friday after the memorial service. We're really proud of how it has turned out.

We have completed our first term of swimming. We’re pleased to say that we have all improved since September.


In Literacy, we have written our own poems and then performed them to the class. All of them were fantastic. We are clearly a humorous class! We used similes, metaphors, alliteration and rhyme.


In Numeracy, we started looking at statistics – we used a line graph and interpreted a table all about the planets.


We started to make our poppies for Remembrance Day. We investigated different ways of using the paint. Unfortunately, the poppies didn’t quite look right. So, as class, we thought of a different and creative way to make our wreath.


I would just like to thank all of the children for a wonderful start to the new school year. I hope that they all have a lovely holiday.

It was great to see so many parents at the Parents' Evenings this week. It was also really nice to hear how much the children are enjoying Year 5. I am sure that they will feel this way for the whole year.

This week in Numeracy, we have been using the bus stop method for division. All of the children know how to use this method. In Literacy, we have been performing poems. We have thought about the different performance techniques.

We are all really looking forwards to TTrockstars day tomorrow. We will upload a class photograph with all of our wonderful costumes!

Poetry and Division

We have refreshed ourselves on how to use the column method for addition and subtraction - we were all super! This week, we have moved on to multiplication. We have been using TT Rockstars at home to help us with the times tables.

We had an alien (pretend, of course!) visit our classroom and he caused lots of mayhem! We wrote some great stories about his adventures. We have now moved on to writing our own newspapers. Hopefully we will be able to put some on next week when we have finished.

To keep inspiring us about our Space topic, we have watched some clips of the ISS - we saw some astronauts doing their jobs.

We are just about to go swimming, for the third time this year. We are all going to try really hard to keep our feet up!

We have had a super start to this year. I am so excited for this year - I know that we have an amazing class. Each and every child brings something wonderful to our class. So many lovely, bubbly personalities. What a lucky teacher I am! Thank you for all of your support so far with reading, homework and returning letters.


Remember that we start swimming next Wednesday 25th September. Please can you ensure that you send your child to school with their full swimming kit on Wednesday. We also need all of the replies for swimming by Friday.


Please remember to send any pantomime replies before next week.

frownWelcome to Year 5!no

I hope that you all had a brilliant summer. All of the children have settled in very well into Year 5. We will be keeping this page up-to-date with what we're learning about in class, any brilliant work, sports and any other news.


As always, any questions, put a note in your child's organiser or ask to see me at the end of the day. Thank you for your support,

 Miss Thompson
