Year 5 (5AN & 5FE)

Mr Norris- a bold, northern gentlemen with the voice of an angel and the soul to match. His passion for music is what drives our school to provide children with a brilliant musical education. In Harmony tuition is lead by Mr Norris and his musician of the month award is as prestigious as it gets. His future- a school of children who have had the opportunity to play a musical instrument and maybe, just maybe, taking that into their future lives. 

Mr Ebling- an early life spent travelling as a youngster has left him with a longing for adventure. Where does that adventure come? Through books! As the school's English lead and reading specialist, his passions lie in striving to make every child see themselves as a reader. His future- every child with a book that they love and a door to adventure. 

Ready to explore?

The Explorer is upon us! The Explorer by Katherine Rundell is a fantastic book, full of suspense, mystery and discovery, and it will guide us through this first half of the Spring term.

The setting is the Amazon rainforest and 4 children have crash landed at its heart. How will they survive? who will they meet? How will they return home?

Educational Trips and Visits

During this half-term, our enrichment activity will be learning some survival skills with Mr Nicholls. Through his expertise, we will look at the skills the children use in the story to gain a better understanding of how they might survive. Skills we will look at will include, building fires, cooking food and teamworking skills in the wild outdoors (imagination needed).

Spelling Shed

The homework spellings can be accessed through Spelling Shed. If your child doesn't know thier login details, feel free to contact Mr Ebling who is happy to get them a new one.

Books this Year

Last half-term, we looked at Macbeth. This fantastic play by William Shakespeare really inspired the children and they produced some fantastic playscripts and poetry that was based on the themes we studied. We hope their enthusiasm for shakespear continues.Image result for macbeth"Next half-term, we will be reading Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. This fantastic story of finding friendship even in the harshest of environments and situations is an absolute treat and we hope the children will enjoy.
