'Stingrays' Year 5

Welcome to Stingrays!

Your teacher will very soon be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we’ve done and more.

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!




The topics that the Year 5 pupils will be covering during the second half of the Summer Term (Term 6) can be seen below.


The pace plan for Year 5 for this half term can be seen below. Each pace plan tracks when particular areas of learning will be in focus across a term.


We kicked off the Spring term with our whole school Curiosity Week.  It was inspired by the short animated film, ‘Soar’ about Mara a budding aircraft designer and how she helped her miniature flying companion Lucas.  The children chose three of the TSL jigsaw pieces to guide their self-directed learning for the week.  The week culminated in them presenting their learning to their classmates.  Look at the photos of Year 5’s Curiosity Week.


Year 5 have been enjoying Bike-ability training this week despite the wintery weather conditions. Every child in the year group has made progress in their bike-handling skills, achieving either Learn-to-Ride, Level 1 or Level 2 Bike-ability certificates. We must say a MASSIVE  'Thank You' to our cycle trainers from Plymouth SSP.


In term 1, Year 5 Surfers and Stingray classes visited an Anglo-saxon village at Wildwood Escot. They had the most fantastic day of learning alongside the Anglo-saxon villagers Matt, Becca and Jessi, metal-working, preparing food, crafting wood, making coins, spotting wild animals and foraging for medicinal plants. The visit has informed all our history lessons throughout the term. The jaw-dropping drop slide was the highlight of a wonderful day out!


The Year 5 teachers have put together some useful links to websites which the children use for numeracy so they can practice at home.

Year 5 have new blogs. 

Come and have a look at what we've been doing in year 5 by following this link.
