Year 5

The Year 5 team leader and class teacher in 5B is Miss Bunce. Miss Masters is the class teacher in 5M and Miss Betts in 5T.

English and Maths are taught in four ability sets in every year group. Our fourth teacher in Year 5 was Mr Knight, our Deputy Head, who taught his Maths group and his English group in Year 5 every day in the Autumn Terms. He has now moved to a school near Leeds and we welcome Miss Windle as our new fourth teacher in Year 5 and also in the  Deputy Head role. 

This Year 5 page will feature general Year 5 news and also classroom displays and pupils' work in English and Maths. The most recent posts to this page will be at the top. Occasionally a whole new web page will be used to report an event (eg last year, for the Tudor Day).

To see class based work you can use the class links in the Pupil drop down menu.

"Easter Cracked" at St Peter's Church - 27th/28th March 2014

On 27th and 28th March 2014, half of Year 5 walked to St. Peter's Church to take part in their "Easter Cracked" workshop. 5M and half of 5T went on the 27th, and 5B and the other half of 5T went on the 28th. More (larger) photos from the 5M/5T session on 27th March, taken by Miss Betts, are in an album at the bottom of the 5T page.

 

Year 5 visit to Henley River and Rowing Museum - 4th and 5th March 2014

Half the year group went to the museum on Tuesday 4th March and the other half of Year 5 went the next day. We had a session in the science room exploring various aspects of rivers and also visited the Thames and Rowing museum. We had hoped to walk to the nearby Marsh Lock but couldn't because of the extensive flooding. At least we saw the flood plain in action!

There is an album of photos on 5B's web page (at the bottom of the page) and also and album of photos on 5T's web page.

TUDOR DAY in school - Fri 13th December 2013

In Year 5 we have been studying the Tudors throughout the Autumn terms. On Friday 13th December we had a Year 5 Tudor Day in school to mark the end of the topic and to have fun doing various Tudor based activities. Dressing up was not compulsory and lots of us did wear something appropriate for Tudor times.

 

The Year group were divided into four groups and spent most of the day on these four main activities:

 

Making and baking Tudor biscuits with Miss Betts,

Making woven paper baskets with Miss Bunce,

Writing in the Tudor style with Mrs Fitzpatrick and

Learning some latin with Mr Knight.

 

Here are a few photos from each activity and there are lots more in the Photo Albums at the bottom of this page.
