WOW, what a term is has been so far! Here are some of the thoughts and views from the class.

"We've had fun learning the ukulele with our music teacher James." (Mohamed)


"Today in science we've started a project involving electrical safety". (Stan)


"In maths we've started to add and subtract larger numbers". (Ethan)


"My friends and I are working towards our grade 1 in piano". (Jemima)

Term 1


Hello and welcome back everyone to our brand new school year. We have made an amazing start to year 5. All the children have shared their holiday adventures and have thrown themselves into the learning. 


Thank you to those of you who attended our 'meet the teacher' evening. We hope you found it useful. If you weren't able to attend please find the powerpoint presentation underneath. 


This part of the website is about providing you with opportunities for some home learning. We encourage all of the children to read every day. 5 Apple's challenge is to read the height of Mr Fry. Once a book has been read please bring it into school so we can photocopy the spine. Additionally, we are testing the children on their weekly spellings and times table target. They will be tested every Thursday. 


Our topic this term involves materials and their properties. We would like the children to design an information page about the materials around the home that keep them warm or cool. The children can also identify the materials that keep us safe from electrical and hot items.  This website has lots of information, games and quizzes about materials. Please have a go!


This week, we will be investigating which everyday material will keep a cup of water hot for the longest amount of time. 


Thank you


Mr Fry and the children of 5KF Apple.
