Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome to upper key stage two. Your child will either be in Mrs Oldman's / Mrs Smith's or Miss Hutchinson's classes, supported by Mrs Zipfel and Mrs Shilling. You're welcome to browse both pages, which we will keep updated with news on our fantastic learning and upcoming events.
We had a fantastic time at PGL. The children got involved with all of the activities and really did the school proud!
Marble run share
A massive thank you and congratulations to all of the year 5 children and their grown ups for your fantastic marble runs. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
The Merchant of Venice
An enormous well done to the cast of The Merchant of Venice. All of your hard work paid off, your performance was incredible, you should be incredibly proud of yourselves! A big thank you to the marketing team also for all of your hard work to advertise the play. Harbour radio came along to enjoy the show because of all of your hard work. The cupcakes also look delicious!
What a busy week for everyone involved in The Merchant of Venice production, especially the marketing team. They have had a press release shared on Yare Radio in preparation for our production and today were interviewed by Kelly Eades from Harbour Radio. Many thanks to Jayden's mum for organising this. If anything gets aired or added to their website we will let you know.
A big thank you to everyone who came to our share afternoon. Hopefully your Tudor bakes turned out as delicious as they looked!
Really looking forward to welcoming all the children back tomorrow in Year 5 - a hive of activity!

Children will be soon given a fantastic Tudor houses project to complete by the end of October half term. So watch out everyone! Other homework information to be confirmed.
The books in our school library are arranged in alphabetical order. Children can pick both non-fiction and fiction books that interest them - and teachers will only guide children in their picking when it is appropriate.
It is expected that children read at home, and it is always helpful for children to read with a parent or guardian where the adult can then question the child on what they have read. Feel free to write a comment in their homework diary to indicate you have read with your child.
Your child will be given their reading journals early next week with more detailed year 5 reading expectations included.
PE and Swimming:
Children need to bring their PE kit into school every Friday for their PE lesson.
Swimming is on alternate Thursday's for each class.
