Thank you to everyone who donated a book for our Year 5 'Bookswap' Event on 19th January. The children loved having a different book to take home and read. If you are stuck for a good read, follow the link below to search for some great ideas. The website has selected 50 top books from which we are sure you will find one to tempt you!
Spring 1 half term - we can't believe we are half-way through Year 5!
Autumn 2 half term - it's been another busy one in Year 5!
Year 5 celebrated Christmas with a carol concert at St Luke's Church next door to our school. The children wrote and read thoughtful prayers using the acronym STOP to think about something they were sorry for, something they were thankful for, thinking of others, and something they wanted to say please for. Children read the Christmas bible readings confidently and sang beautiful versions of Away in a Manger and Silent Night, rounding with a rousing rendition of O Come all ye Faithful. Thank you to the many parents and carers who came to join us. We hope you liked the order of service covers that the children designed for you.
What a great Viking Day we had! Thank you Mike from Portals from the Past.
We enjoyed wearing odd socks to celebrate that we are all unique at the start of Anti-Bullying week.
Autumn 1 half term. What a busy start to Year 5 we have had!

Supporting Learning at Home
- Homework is set weekly on Tuesdays, and collected in on Mondays. This consists of one piece of Maths homework and one piece of English homework. We suggest spending a maximum of 30 minutes on each piece.
- Our weekly spelling lists can be found on Google Classroom.
Here are some additional resources, which you may find useful when supporting learning at home:

In the event of school closure...
On rare occasions, it may be necessary to close the school. This may be due to adverse weather conditions or perhaps when essential school services cannot be provided –e.g. heating, plumbing or water.
Please refer to the School’s Bad Weather Policy on our website for information regarding how we communicate a school closure.
Class teachers will then initiate home school learning activities, and these will be available to children by 10am of the same morning.
