So we are in the last half term of year 5 and what a fantastic year it’s been! The children have been doing so well with swimming, producing great work in lessons and having fun too! Lots of exciting things to look forward over the next few weeks – sports day, performances, year 5 assembly etc…

On the classroom door, you will find any important notices and reminders.
Please do not hesitate to come and see me if there are any problems!

 Rewards and behaviour…

In 5C, I aim to motivate children through consistent praise! We have different systems in place, some of which encourage ‘healthy competition’ within the classroom!

1. Good to be Green – a whole school initiative which encourages children to stay on ‘green’ throughout the week. Children will receive a yellow card for poor behaviour and work ethic, they have the chance to earn this back. If poor behaviour continues, a red card is issued and they are sent to Mrs Mitchell.

2. House points – these are given when children demonstrate ‘green’ behaviour (following class rules, being kind, contributing to lessons, doing the best work they can, challenging themselves and striving to be the best they can be!)

3. Table points – As well as individual house points, children can earn table points for demonstrating good team work, communication, co-operation, tidiness and support. At the end of each week, the table with the most results will receive a prize as well as a raffle ticket. At the end of each term, I will draw a raffle ticket and the winner will receieve a special prize! 😀

Literacy – Animals on the Move

Our next book in Literacy is Animals on the Move. 

A non-fiction book all about animals! Looking the way the animals migrate and where different animals live. The children will be working hard to retrieve information and record information in different ways, including posters and fact files.

Creative Curriculum: 

Journey through space and navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system. Investigate the eight planets – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits the Earth.

Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that human kind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or is there another life forms out there?

Trip: Space museum! 


Take a look below at our FANTASTIC 3D contour models. We learnt that contour lines show us the height of different land! We worked super hard in groups.

We will also be studying:

Science – Earth, sun and moon.
French – Greetings, numbers and colours.
Music – rhythm and composition.
ICT –  Coding simple programs and debugging.
PE – Swimming.
Geography – Habitats.
Art and DT – Clay work.


Why don’t you have a look at some of our previous learning from across the year?
