Week 2

Another busy week over in Class 5! There were some fantastic World Book Day costumes – loved the creativity behind them.

We have been revisiting statistics this week in Maths, with a new focus on Line Graphs – this was new to most children and they have worked really hard to understand their usage, how to draw them and how to interpret. As always, we have worked on our arithmetic skills. The pace and understanding has dramatically improved and I’m sure this will reflect during assessment week!

We have continued to use Boy in the Tower as our text type – the narrative pieces of writing I have read this week have been outstanding. As a class we have been working on ‘showing not telling’. This means describing what is happening, what it might feel like or look like rather than what it is. We have had to have a long chat on handwriting and presentation as this seems to have slipped. Unfortunately, some pen permits have been suspended as, after repeated reminders and extra interventions over the last few months, this hasn’t been improved and so no longer meets the standard needed to write in pen. I’m hoping these pen permits can be used once again in the weeks to come.

Don’t forget swimming kits on Monday!

Have a good weekend,

Miss Walker :)

Wow what a weekend!  HUGE congratulations to the Trampoline Teams who have competed in the national finals in Cannock today.  The boys team came third and the girls team WON!  Chloe also came second in the individual competition - simply fabulous.


What an incredible achievement to win a national title - I just don't even have the words to describe how proud I am of them all.  

Congratulations to the children and their coach, Mr Jefferies!

What a brilliant first week back we had. The children were so excited to finally perfom their assembly this week! We were so impressed with how well they learned their lines and their acting and singing was brilliant too! We hope you enjoyed watching it :)

This week we also did some more work on the past tense, changing regular and irregular verbs from present to past tense! 

In maths we looked at measuring weight and solved tricky two step word problems including weight! 

In PSHE&C we discussed what makes each one of us special an unique! 

We are excited to see what everyone will be dressed up as for world book day next thursday!!

Spring 2 Week 1

This week we have started our new traditional tales topic in English. We have looked at the features you find in traditional tales and thought about what makes the characters good and bad.

In maths we have been recapping our number knowledge. We used dienes to show our numbers in tens and ones. We also practised writing our numbers in words and numbers and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

In addition to all of this, we have looked at and located the 7 continents in geography, identified the animals which live in polar and ocean habitats in science, painted different flags in art and looked at the events in the Easter story in RE.


  • World book day on Thursday (7th) – Costume needed.
  • Spring Disco on Friday (8th, 5.30-7pm)

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Leake
