Devon & Somerset Fire Service

Today 2 members of the Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service came to talk to us in year 5 about how to stay safe if there is a fire.

We learnt how to STOP – DROP & ROLL if our clothes are on fire.

We found out that we need to test our smoke alarms once a week.

If we see a fire, we have to get out, stay out and call 999.

We also learnt about what a hoax call is, and we know how serious it is to make a hoax call, putting other people’s lives in danger.

This afternoon we made posters and leaflets telling people how they can stay safe too!


Today in year 5!

We have had an exciting day in year 5 today! It all started when a mysterious creature left a footprint on the field….

We went out to investigate, take photos and make notes of what we thought it could be!

Some of us described it as:

  • As tall as a skyscraper
  • As heavy as a rhino
  • Long hairy toes
  • Ginormous beast with point ears

We then wrote character descriptions describing what we though it could be.. what do you think it is?

Then this afternoon in geography, we went for a walk by the River Exe to look for the features of a river we had learn including flood plains, meanders and confluences.

We saw lots of wildlife that use the river and a pedalo.

Year 5 homework

Welcome back year 5!

We have had a great first week back for our last half term of year 5! We have been learning about co-ordinates in maths and have learnt a lot about using atlases to locate rivers and mountains in geography.


This weeks homework: practise spellings, reading, mathletics and timetable rockstars.

This weeks spelling focus is irregular plurals, our test will be on Friday.















Painting in St Thomas!

On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to be asked to help design and paint an area of a wall, in St Thomas.

The children were really excited by the idea and had some amazing ideas! An artist, Chloe Pooley, organised the event and helped design the painting.

All of year 5 were very creative and enjoyed doing it!

It isn’t finished yet, but it is going to look amazing.
