Year 5 Victorian Day

The children have had a wonderful day as Victorian children. We have learnt about Victorian handwriting and the money used in Victorian times; we have chanted spellings and poems; the children participated in PE drills and also read part of a book that was written in the Victorian times.

Harvest Festival

Well done to all the children for their fabulous efforts with Harvest Festival. There were some lovely prayers and reflections read out. Thank you to all the families who have donated too – it is very much appreciated.

Science – Materials

This term in Science we have been learning about materials; we completed a number of experiments which tested materials in different ways. We have used a number of scientific enquiry skills: asking, question, predicting, planning fair test and making conclusion.

English Autumn 1

In English this term, we have innovated a model text based on The Highwayman by Alfred Noyse.

We wrote internal monologues based on the model text.


We have written letters about smugglers coming into our village and the worries we have.

The children worked hard on their descriptions – including using figurative language.


Later on in the term, we have been writing balanced discussion and debating about Global Trade.
