Welcome to Year 5 !
Here is our page to let you know about our learning journey in Year 5 and some key reminders for activities going on in the week.
Remember to bring your group reading book, reading records and reading for pleasure books in. Reading for pleasure books go home everyday and reading books will go home every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and need to be in school every day.
These will be needed for reading groups, reading with adults and independent reading each day!

This week we have been looking at newspaper reports-
Poetry Day- Thursday 7th October
This year our poem was ‘The Tyger’ By William Blake. All week we have been looking at it in Guided Understanding so we tried to write our own. We have also been acting out the poem to help us to understand it. In the afternoon, we drew our own tigers. It was very hard but we all persevered to create some lovely sketches! Have a look at some of our pictures from the day below.
We have been looking at what the Anglo-Saxon and Vikings used to wear including accessories. For the last week we have been looking at brooches- the shapes, the patterns and the colours. We designed our own brooches and painted them. Then we made them out of clay. Look at our work below!
Thursday 23rd September
We kick started our learning about the 5 steps to well-being with a visitor who told us all about how to Take 5. We talked about and did some activities relating to 'Give', 'Be Active', 'Keep Learning', 'Connect' and 'Take Notice'. Including working in groups and using some question prompts to take notice of each others hobbies and favourite things.
Friday 24th September
Today we focused on 'Keep Learning' and learnt a new skill- sketching life-like eyes! Have a look at some our work below! What is something new you have learnt recently?
