Year 5 Topic Homework 14/09/18

As part of our science topic this term, we are looking at Earth and space. We would like you to research one of the planets in our solar system and create a fact file about that planet.

You can present your research in any way, for example a poster, leaflet, model, painting or presentation. Be as creative as you like!

You have three weeks to complete this project which is due on Friday 5th October. We will spend some time in school looking at each other’s creations and sharing what we have found out.

Lunch time club is available every day if you need some help with research. IPads and books about space will be available at this time.

We look forward to seeing what you create.

Miss Cseri & Miss Elliott.


Welcome back to year 5!

We have had a great start to the new school year in Year 5. In our first week we joined in with lots of team building activities as we got to know our new class mates and teachers better, including building towers out of straws and blue tac!

Our current topics for this half term are:

Maths: Place value

Science: Earth and space

English: Fiction writing – focussing on the video of the girl and the fox.

PSHE: What makes somebody a genius?


Please can you ensure children bring their homework diaries to school every day to record their homework and reading. If you have any messages you would like to share with teachers, feel free to use these books for communication.

PE days for year 5 are Wednesday and Thursday.

Willow are swimming for their Thursday PE session so please remember to be in school Thursday with goggles, towels and swimming costumes.

Thank you

Miss Cseri & Miss Elliott



World War 2

Year 5 have been enjoying their history topic learning all about WW2.

They had a guest speaker, Mr Morris, come in to talk to them about the Blitz. They also got to see what rations they would have to live on if they lived during WW2.

The children have looked at some artefacts from WW2 and Mrs Stanner brought in some medals.

WW2 art work and writing coming soon!

Willow Kayaking Trip

A few weeks ago year 5 enjoyed a great day out kayaking on the River Exe.  After learning about rivers from source to mouth, it was  a great opportunity to join in with some of the fun you can have on the river!

We may have got a little bit wet but we had lots of fun!

Enjoy a selection of pictures we took throughout the day!
