Welcome to Year 5

Book Week, International Day , Final Week

In the last few weeks, we have had some exciting learning especially after a review of our end of year tests.  We completed our underwater scenes that we created from shoe boxes during book week. We also had the opportunity to learn about Senegal- our focus country for activities culminating in the celebration of International Day. As exit point to our Topic on Rain forests

, we held a debate on deforestation.

This is the final (full ) week in Year 5 and it is befitting to say what a pleasure it has been for all the adults in the class to have worked with our pupils. We hope they will face the year ahead with determination and positivity.  We would also like to say a big thank you for your generosity and kind words we have already received from you. Have a nice summer break.



Exploring the Rain forests!

Our highlight this week was arguably the rain forest workshop we had on Thursday,21st June. We made puppets of rain forest animals:toucans, snakes and cloudy leopards.

Later in the afternoon we watched a puppet show based on a rain forest story.




This week, we discussed how to use basic ratio to compare quantities in Numeracy and wrote our own reports of the weather using technical vocabulary.

In Topic, we began our learning about the Amazon Rain forest and its different layers. Pupils also looked at parts of the world where there are rain forests and located them on a world map.


A week at Whitgift School

This week,  Year 5 took part in the  Whitgift Primary Project at Whitgift School. Pupils had the opportunity to use some of the school’s facilities especially in the ICT department. Other subjects we learnt were Chinese, Japanese, Music and Science. Find below our activities in photos.



Topic Work – The Titanic

This week, pupils wrote about past significant events in Topic work. With the facts researched, they wrote newspaper articles about ‘The Titanic’ and in art drew the colossal vessel. We also reinforced our knowledge of measurements by doing varied pieces of work  in Perimeter of rectangles in Maths.
