Autumn 1 – Week 2

Stars of the Week: Maidie and Sarah

Class 5 have been writing setting descriptions of Ancient Mayan Villages. They took time to look at figurative language and include that in their writing. Some children were able to use personification really well. Have a look at this fantastic piece below!

In P.E, Class 5 were very luck to have a gymnastics coach teach them how to different jumps such as pikes and a forward roll from an incline wedge mat. They all acted like true professionals and made sure they finished in the correct standing position with their arms out.

Next week we will read more chapters of The Corn Grows Ripe in English where we will analyse the text.

Autumn 1 – Week 1

Stars of the Week: Nathan and Ethan

Well done to the whole of Class 5 for their first week of the new academic year.

We have revised our understanding of place value including how to round numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. Class 5 have even looked at a new place value column called the ten thousands!

In history and science, they have focused on the key vocabulary to ensure that they can correctly talk about and understand what we are learning this half term.


In PE, Class 5 started our topic of invasion games where we learned to dribble in hockey. Some children were even able to use the wooden sticks where they would control the ball with only one side of the stick!


Summer 2 – Week 6

Stars of the week: Bernice & Filip

Class 5 have had a busy week planning and drafting their London tourist guides in English. In maths, they have shown fantastic resilience converting between different units.  They have started painting their spitfire aeroplanes in DT and will paint on the finishing touches next week. In Spanish, the class consolidated their sports knowledge in a speaking and listening activity.


Well done Class 5 for a SPECTACULAR SPORTS DAY! You all showed amazing team spirit and demonstrated your athletic skills brilliantly. Thank you so much to all the adults that came to watch – you brought the playground alive with energy.

(Wembley stadium eat your heart out!).

Summer 2 – Week 5

Stars of the week: Teniola & Courtney

This week in Class 5 we used Mod Roc to sculpt our spitfires. Next week we will paint them to bring them alive!

We have had a brilliant Sports Week so far and cannot wait for our Sports Day on Friday. It is safe to say we have enthusiasm, competitive spirit and team positivity by the bucket load!

Summer 2 – Week 4

Stars of the week: Joseph & Tallulah

Class 5 had a wonderful trip to the London Eye on Tuesday. They observed the skyline, spotted landmarks and used compass points to locate them. Well done Class 5 for showing such enthusiasm for your learning and for behaving so brilliantly. Here are some photographs to give you a flavour of the trip:

Summer 2 – Week 3

Stars of the week: ALL OF CLASS 5

Well done Class 5 on a spectacular collective worship this week. It was so wonderful seeing all the incredible learning you have done.

In English, we have enjoyed reading ‘The Trojan War’. We explored the features of newspaper reports and will be writing a report about the duel from chapter 4  next week.

Next week we will be having a sports day practice. We look forward to seeing you at the real event on Friday 9th July!
