Week beginning 13th July
Can you believe it's the final week Year 5? Where has the time gone? Quite a strange end to Summer term and certainly not the one we were expecting, but we hope that you are still working hard and having fun at home. We are proud of the way you have worked through this and we both know you will be more than ready for Year 6 in September. And the good news is you get to stay with us for a few days when you return!
We hope you have an amazing Summer with your families and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.
Mr Dixon and Mr Walker.
Week beginning 6th July 2020
Hi Year 5!
Well this week has been a bit of a washout hasn't it! It's been very wet this week and in school we have spent quite a bit of time indoors and trying to get out in between the showers. It was nice to see some of you at Book Swap this week and also for extra Study Ladder sessions on Tuesday morning. Well done to those who attended, Miss Taylor was very impressed with how hard you all worked.
Keep busy and have a good week!
Week Beginning 29th June
Hi Year 5! We hope you are all well and have enjoyed the sunshine over the last week - it was very hot for us in school and we we had to find lots of shady spots to sit in to avoid the heat! Well done to those of you who completed all of your StudyLadder tasks this week - another busy week! Can you believe there are only 3 weeks left til the Summer holidays? It's flown by! So keep up the good work Year 5 and then you can enjoy your holiday properly!
MR CODD HAS TAKEN OVER STUDY LADDER!
Hi Year 5 - it's Mr Codd,
I hope you are all well! I have been impressed with how you are completing work. This week, I have taken over your Study Ladder from Mr Dixon and Mr Walker and I will be running your Study Ladder until the end of this term.
There will be a slight change to how I set the Study ladder tasks which will start to encourage you to take control of your own learning and get you ready for Year 6. I will now set a weekly pod for:
English, Maths and Foundation subjects. This means that all of the tasks you need to complete for that subject (in the week) will be in the subject pod. Please don't be put off by this and see it instead as a challenge to manage your work. The Y6's have managed this well.
My advice is to make sure you plan out when you are going to complete the activities. If you do a spelling, SPaG and reading task for English a day and a mental maths task and one or two main maths activities a day you will keep up with the work in these subjects. There are only seven foundation subject tasks for the week so you could do one of these a day. Alternatively, you could aim to get all your work done by Thursday and have a three-day weekend - bonus!
I look forward to seeing how you complete the work - impress me, you never know which teacher you will get next year.
Hiya everybody, Mr Dixon here again! Firstly I like to say well done to all of you who are working so hard on Study Ladder, I'm really pleased to see so many of you doing so well. Remember also that there is always work on Spelling Shed.
I've been in the hub last week working with the Year 4,5 and 6 Key Worker bubble - what a load of superstars!! Sensible and hardworking
In other news Toby had to go to the vets for an operation, he was very sleepy afterwards but is back to being a giddy kipper now. Here is a picture of him in his special suit to stop him scratching. It was like a baby grow!!
Mr Lydon the chess man, has set up a chess kid account for us.

Hello again Year 5! Mr. Walker here. I hope you are all well and had a good half term. I have been in school last week working with key workers children. We have been doing maths, handwriting, art and studyladder. We have enjoyed playtimes and lunchtimes too!

Week beginning Monday 18th May
Hello Year 5! Mr. Walker here. I hope you are all well and are managing to enjoy the dry weather and get out and about. I have been on my bike for rides into the countryside as well as walks. I went fishing with my youngest son too, we enjoyed being able to fish as part of the relaxing of the lockdown rules (the fish is a small salmon - we put it back). What will you get up to now you can get out more?
I hope you all had chance to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of V.E. Day - I phoned my mum (who is now 83) on the day and she told me her memories of the day. She talked about a big street party and how they had crab paste sandwiches, jelly and lots of cake!! She talked very fondly about the day and how everyone felt so relieved that the war was over.
Well done to all those amazing children who keep climbing up the Study Ladder
This next week there is a TT rockstars battle against Year 6 - Losing is not an option guys!!
Mr Codd has already said that Year 6 is going to win - let's prove him wrong!!
