Please find attached the KIRFs for Term 4. 

Year 5 - Term 4 KIRFs

Each term we set the children KIRFs which are 'key instant recall facts'. The children should revise these facts both at school and at home. Through focused revision of these areas, the children build their mathematical knowledge and fluency. This makes it easier for them to access new content in lessons as they are not having to rely on their working memory. 

World Book Day 2024


Year 5 had fantastic fun for World Book Day this year.

Across the week, we took part in lots of Reading for Pleasure, joined a range of online sessions where we engaged with a variety of activities, such as creating our own fairy tales, drawing comic book characters and listening to famous storytellers.

On World Book Day, we took part in a 'footy and booky' quiz, learnt how to draw characters like the author of Nina Peanut and learnt all about Rosa Parks through the 'Little People, Big Dreams book'. Lots of us dressed up and our costumes looked fantastic!

 Year 5 - World Book Day

First Week

We have continued to think about our school and class values, had lots of fun with some skittles place value, learnt about aboriginal art and experimented with using different techniques to draw patterns with dots and used thesauruses to find synonyms for our emotions which we are going to use tomorrow to write our own poems!

This afternoon, the children learnt about what app permissions are and how to change them as well as how to create a strong password.

First Day of Year 5

What a brilliant first day back! The children were fabulous!

This week, we are focusing our learning around a book called The Dot. We wrote letters to people who have encouraged us, thought about our school vision and St Barnabas, wrote about our aspirations for the year and contributed to some collaborative art that the whole school are involved in.
