Year 5 Miss Hillary & Miss Grey

Hello and welcome back! We hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. Miss Grey, Miss Hillary and Mrs Curry have lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities planned for the children for this half term.

This half term the children will be working on the topic 'Flight' and will be reading 'FaRther' and 'The Alchemist's Letter'. We are also very much looking forward to Lumiere where the children can showcase their amazing creations based around our topic.


PE days this half term are Monday and Wednesday - can children make sure they have PE kits on these days. 


Y5 loved their session yesterday during Gymnastics Day! They learnt lots of new balances, ways of travelling and even put together their own routine with a partner.

Year 5 have been learning about Earth and Space this half term. Today we learned about the phases of the moon and we used Oreos to represent each phase.

The children had a great time with Richard from Cycling Generation this morning learning all about the effect exercise has on their heart rate. The children had a boy vs girl race on the bike which measured how many meters they would have traveled. The girls won!

The children have been watching the short film 'Little Freak' in English this week and are writing a character description of Little Freak. The child worked in groups to describe his appearance, behaviour and how he speaks.

This week we have been writing a radio advert trying to persuade the listener to try our new drink - 'Sploosh!' Miss Hillary and Miss Grey made us some to try. Some of us weren't sure at first but some of us loved it!

The children took on the role of Stanley Yelnats from the book 'Holes'. They experienced digging holes to see how it felt - some of us were very tired!

The children worked hard today during our 'sticky note' lesson. The children had to work in pairs to solve the bronze, silver and gold subtraction problems!

The children loved watching the Tour of Britain race through the streets of Chopwell! They designed signs and cheered the riders on.
