Year 5


Well done to Kyle (Excellence)  and Rupey (Pride) this week. 
Rupey takes pride in all his work, especially in English. 
Kyle has been working really hard in maths with decimals, tenths and hundredths. 

Hundertwasser houses- today we looked at the artist Hundertwasser and transformed the look of our homes in his style.

Year 5 visited the Succah today.

Using mono printing, the children composed a print using acrylic paint, from a larger observational drawing.


Well done to Noah (Achieve) and Emily (Excellence) for receiving our special mentions this week!!

Noah persevered through Maths working on negative numbers.

Emily wrote an excellent compare and contrast paragraph using all the features of report.


PE is on a Thursday. Please ensure children are in their full PE Kit. This includes socks in the correct colour and black trainers.

Spellings and Reading Books with Reading Records will come home from the 1st October. 



Our unit in Art this half term is 'Architecture'. Please send in an A4 black and white photo/picture of a house. It can be your house / a relatives / a friend / a google search... as long as it is the full front of a house in black and white. If you are unable to print one, please email it in to the school office for the attention of Year 5.

Celebration Teas are back! We look forward to seeing children celebrating their excellent work and behaviour with Mrs Cohen.


We story mapped ‘The Frost Unicorn’ - the children performed these in front of their peers.

Today in Year 5 we went to ‘The Studio’ and created some life size Keith Haring replicas.

Today in Year 5, we continued our work on place value and comparing numbers. Mr Barnett led us in our daily exercise where he, along with the daily exercise helpers, modelled some new and exciting exercises. In art, we used model magic to sculpt our own Keith Haring figures which we dyed using felt. 

First Friday

Welcome Back!

We have had a fantastic first day in Year 5. The children have worked hard and have behaved beautifully. We couldn’t be more proud of the great start they have had!

This afternoon we began out artwork based on Keith Haring. We explored his work and experimented with line and form showing movement in stick men. This will be used to build up our artwork across the next 2 weeks.
