Look at what have been learning...
Last term we learned about the effects of World War 2. We looked at key issues such as rationing, evacuation, the Blitz, the changing role of women and the campaigns led by propaganda such as 'Dig For Victory' and 'Make Do And Mend'. We particularly enjoyed our 'dress up' day. We arrived dressed as evacuees and had our own air raid! We met a lady from the National War Graves Commission who taught us all about our local war heroes! We loved making our own 3D air raid shelters on the laptops. In science, we created our own fair tests to see which materials would keep us warmest in an air raid shelter! You can see some of these things in the photos below...
Look at some of our pictures!

SEESAW Homework APP

Homework this year will be all provided on our online platform seesaw. Each child will be given a unique passcode or QR code to scan. This will allow them to access weekly (differentiated) homework provided by their teachers.
Each week your child will be set homework in the following areas:
- Maths - work linked to this weeks work in class
- Maths - key mental targets (see below to download a spare copy)
- GPS (Grammar/Punctuation/Spelling)
Reading at Home
Children will also be expected to complete reading at home to an adult. The expected amount is at least 4 reads of 20 minutes per week it is vital that your child completes this as it supports the learning that takes place in the classroom
All reading at home should be recorded in the reading log book so that children can earn rewards for their efforts.
Maths Homework Packs - 2 Minute Challenges
To be tested each week - Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets uploaded to their seesaw home learning space, but a spare can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one page per week.
Further Homework Support
Purple Mash is a fantastic resource that allows your child to word process, create images, create code and much much more. Every child has a login for Purple Mash and this can be used both at school and at home. Please click on the image above to link to this site.
Please ask your child's teacher if you require a new username and password.
Additional times table challenges can be created from the website below.

Fitness Fridays - with Elite
All classes in Y5 get a chance to work with the Elite Coaches on a Friday. To make changing between classes easier, we would prefer pupils to come to school wearing their official Green/Black PE kit on Friday instead of their regular uniform.
This term we will be doing athletics outside. Children will need to wear their school black PE shorts/black tracksuit bottoms & t-shirt for these lessons. Black school hoodies maybe worn over the top to keep pupils warm for the rest of the day. As this is the uniform for the day we ask that children wear the official school PE kit rather than sports clothing from other clubs etc.
Monday Afternoons/PE times:
5D - Music/French/Topic
5U - Elite PE Coaches & Topic
5P - Topic & Elite
5G - Art with Mrs Jackson
(5P & 5U will need to come to school PE kit on Monday - 5D & 5P will come to school in their regular uniforms)
ALL classes will also have PE on a friday and should come to school in PE kit ready for their Elite PE session
