'Surfers' Year 5

Welcome to Surfers!


We had beautiful weather for our Year 5 Outdoor Learning Morning on Wednesday 17th March. Surfers wrote 'Poetree' poetry and investigated a range of ways to measure the height of trees in our school grounds. Eva suggested we could also do an outdoor Spanish lesson, so we played the action game 'Simon dice...' (Simon says...) too!

Have a look at our Fraction and Decimal posters, which present our Lockdown Learning around this Maths unit.


Year 5's recent Space project homework has been absolutely FANTASTIC. Thank you to all of the children (and parents!) for your obvious efforts. Both classes spent a really enjoyable and informative afternoon looking at each others projects and writing down any new facts they learnt. There was a lot of learning shared. Well done Year 5. We are fast becoming space experts!


Curiosity Weeks 2020 have been enormous fun for Year 5 students. We've been to... The Fairground in model-making, dance, creative-writing and computing lessons. Here are a few photos of what we have been up to but there is also lots on display around the Year 5 area of school. Come and take a look!


The Surfers class are really enjoying the start to our Orienteering unit of work. They have been learning to read many different types of maps - from Ordnance Survey right through to funny faces!! 


Year 5 had a delicious Design Technology project to do this term - design and make a healthy, appetising smoothie. They really enjoyed the taste-testing and final end-results.


Year 5 were set the challenge to design and create the battle armour for a Viking chieftain. They learnt about the materials and features that Viking clothing would have and then had to protect their leader from attack by Erik the Viking. They really got into role!


Year 5 designed and created replica Anglo Saxon coins.


Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic day out at Wildwood Escot on Thursday 19th September, learning all about life in Saxon times. Check out our photo gallery to see all the activities we fitted into a really busy and fun-filled day!


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 the link below.
