Another Week In Year 5

Welcome back,

Can you believe that we have just one week before the half term break? Another week has flown by.

This week in writing lessons, year 5 wrote free verse poems about nature and the world around us. We explored figurative language and made an exceptional effort to include alliteration, similes, personification and metaphors in our poetry.


In maths, we are learning about statistics. We learned how to read and interpret line graphs. We even had a go at drawing our own, and using our graphs to better understand the data. We look forward to next week’s statistics lessons: reading and interpreting data tables.


Part of understanding our world around us is learning about different people’s beliefs. In religious studies we are exploring the 6 world religions. Over the past two weeks, we looked at Islamic faith and Sikhism. We know that the Islamic faith is based on 5 important pillars of faith, and that Sikh means ‘to learn’.

On that note, we can’t wait to share with you what we learn next week. We’ll be celebrating Black History Month, so circle back to see what amazing outcomes we produce then.

Until next time!

What have year 5 been up to?

Welcome back!

Year 5 have been super busy.

In writing lessons, we read ‘The Journey Home,’ which is a beloved classic by Frann Preston-Gannon. This week, we wrote our own versions of the story. Our focus has been to develop our vocabulary and write expanded noun phrases to make our descriptions more interesting.


In maths, we have been learning how to order, compare and round numbers to the nearest degree of accuracy. We’ve even learned how to read and write Roman numerals.


Learning how we develop and change is extremely important for understanding how to take care of ourselves, as we transition from childhood to adolescence. This has been our focus in Science this week.

Considering ways to take care of our planet has been a major topic of discussion in our PSHE sessions too. We have created posters and ‘up-cycled’ plastic bottles into containers, which can be used to store household objects e.g. pencils and accessories.


We are ready for the weekend, and looking forward to what awesome learning we will take part in next week.

See you in the next post!

Wk 22/06/2020 – Fabulous fantastic food

Hi everyone ,

It’s been a while, hope you are all well. I’ve been doing some homework, for example, Maths, English, Science, and Creative Art and I’ve learned to play Happy Birthday on the piano.

This week the challenges were to create your own food menu for the place that I use to have treats before lockdown. My mom would take me to Karspers as a treat.  So here is my menu for Kaspers  Nicholas’s Kaspers Menu

I also did the reading on the Barkey, and here are my answers. Week 22.6.20 – Inference The Bakery

I hope you like it.

National Windrush Day 2020

Dear Year 4,

Today marks 72 years since the ship HMT Empire Windrush landed at Tilbury docks in East London bringing over 1000 people to help rebuild Britain after WW2.

Following this, over half a million people came to the UK to provide much needed skills and and labour. A lot of them worked for the NHS, buses and trains and much more.

This is an excellent opportunity to celebrate our country’s diversity.
