Yr 5 Electronic board games

Yr5 Electronic board games.


Yesterday afternoon, Year 2 came to visit us and test our electronic games. We were in groups of 3's and our games contained an electrical circuit, switch and a light bulb. The games were fun and taught the younger children some interesting facts about New Zealand and Australia.


Every Monday afternoon, the classes take turns to learn how to play the ukulele. The teacher is called James. We use songs like 'We will rock you' and songs by George Ezra because they have a drum beat and are easy to remember. Each week we learn a different chord. The chords we know and can play are F major, C major, A minor, and G6. It is fun to learn a new instrument but can be a bit noisy!


Art Day


Art day was amazing because we used water colours! We explored flowers using many different materials, like clay, pipe cleaners, paper and cups. Everything was focussed on the artist Lucienne Day, an inspirational artist. She died in 2010, aged 93. She was an incredible woman and her art will be remembered for ever. We created flowers in pots and they will be displayed during Art on the Hill, on Saturday 5th October.  


Art Day September 25th

Welcome back!

It is really great to see the children refreshed and ready to learn. We have engaging and exciting topics this year, beginning with Australia and New Zealand. The children are already enthusiastic to learn about these two countries. If any of you have any links to these places (photos, books, artefacts) or any expertise, please let your class teacher know.



This term PPA will be on a Wednesday morning and covered by Mrs.H and Mr.Germain.


PE will be on a Monday and Friday. Please ensure your child has PE kit consisting of a plain white T-shirt, black shorts and trainers. 


On Monday afternoons Year 5 will be learning the Ukulele for the whole year. This is an amazing opportunity to learn an instrument with a specialised music teacher.


Your child may borrow a book from the school and class library. Please encourage your child to read at home and feel free to ask if you need any support.
