Year 5

End of Autumn 2

As we near the end of the Autumn term, we just wanted to say how proud we are of all the children for all of their hard work! They have loved our topic Vicious Vikings: Traders or Raiders? They have become history detectives and have been inquisitive to learn more about the past, including how Vikings lived their lives and how this was very different from our lives today! As well as this, they've looked at the Anglo-Saxon and Viking struggle for power and some of the leaders that ruled during this time. 


Please see 5KP's Christmas video below with their artwork based on the poem 'The Christmas Truce' by Carol Ann Duffy.

We hope that you have a brilliant Christmas and wish you all a very happy new year, see you in January!

Brazil Display

We have been busy creating some fabulous rainforest animal artwork in the style of Romero Britto with our wonderful art teacher, Mrs Redgewell. Take a look at their colourful designs below! 

Blazing Brazil - Fantastic Finish


Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic day becoming costume designers for the Brazilian Carnival. Their task was to research, design, make and evaluate a mask that would fit into the colourful parade that takes place every year all across Brazil. See below for some photos of their excellent creations.

Autumn 1 Term


As we near the end of our first term back at school, we wanted to reflect on how brilliantly Year 5 have settled back in. They have come back to school excited to learn and eager to be the very best version of themselves. They have enjoyed learning all about our topic, Blazing Brazil, and are looking forward to our Fantastic Finish on Friday!


We have put together a poem to celebrate Harvest - you can find our video by following this link:     We hope you enjoy it! 


Have a restful half term.
