Well done everyone on the  cracking spelling test and timestable scores we had last week. You all now have the difficult task of keeping this going. I do however feel confident that you will.

You have also made a really great start with recording and getting your planners signed daily.  By reading everyday I know you will make excellent progress in this area.

If you would like to produce some additional homework based on our topic WW1, to upload onto the blog, then please see the attached grid.

A big welcome to Year 5!


Well its been an absolute delight getting to know my new class. What a fabulous bunch you all are!

This week Year 5  have responded to the challenge of how to increase the wildlife on our school grounds. They have all helped to weed and plant 3 flower beds. Roll on the spring when we get to see them grow.

Last week we had enjoyed creating some bug pitfall traps in different parts of the school grounds to see what the wildlife was like.

Here we are this week busy weeding and planting daffodil, tulip, iris and allium bulbs

A big thank you to Tommy’s dad who very kindly bought in his army uniform to look at.  As you can see Stevey looks quite scary in the  gas mask and Tommy is just an expert on anything military.

Wow, look whose famous? Well done Seraphina-what an achievement!
