Here we can see a group of Year 5 boys enjoying a cold, but very active Maths session. Using mental calculation strategies, they had to add large numbers…but while racing against each other at the same time! Typical scores at the end of the session were 10’s and 11’s out of 12, which was a great performance. Well done.
Year 5 have started their Cycling Proficiency course this term. This week, they discussed the course with the cycling team and then demonstrated and practised their basic cycling skills. Eventually, Year 5 children will ride on local roads, under close supervision, and earn their cycling proficiency certificate.

Well done to all the children involved, who clearly had fun and practised their maths skills with a smile on their faces!
This week, Year 5 have been raising money for Children in Need. We held a ‘Bad Hair Day’ and a cake sale. An enjoyable week, but most importantly, we raised lots of money! Well done to all the children who took part.
As part of our study of the Tudor period, children in Year 5 have been completing several interesting tasks as part of their home-learning. Here are a sample of some of their fantastic efforts!
