July 2017 - Inspired by their trip to the beach, Year 5 have been creating their own colourful, eye catching beach huts. Come and see them when they are finished, at the Art Gallery!
June 2017. Year 5's awesome beach day! After meeting down at Exmouth beach, Year 5 worked energetically in teams to create sand sculptures connected to the topic theme of Ancient Greece. They based their creations on Greek mosaics they had seen and produced lifelike turtles, dolphins, octopus and many more! Following a brisk walk down to the Exmouth Marina, they then embarked on a fascinating river cruise aboard a boat named 'The Tudor Rose' . This gave them the opportunity to spot local wildlife and pick out local landmarks. Arriving back on dry land, they all enjoyed a well earned ice cream before making their way slowly, but happily, back to school!
June 2017 - We love the Summer term! 5K keeping cool in the shade as the sun shines!
June 2017- Making Greek mosaics. Year 5 researched, then drew their own designs for Greek mosaics. They were careful to observe the patterns, colours and traditional designs and were keen to make their mosaics as authentic as possible!
June 2017 - 5K become actors... 'Horrible Histories' style. Having written their own playscripts, 5K transported themselves back in time to act out a scene based in Ancient Greece. Imagine scenes of Greek Meze, Olympic competitions, battles between Greeks and Persians and the Trojan horse and you have just a small glimpse into the contents of some of their scripts! Well done 5K you were truly captivating!
May 2017 - Tasting Greek food at a meze. Year 5 tried lots of different types of traditional Greek food, including the tzatsiki and houmous they had made the day before. The pitta bread was particularly popular, but everyone was happy to try all the different delicious dishes on offer!

May 2017 - Year 5 have been reading myths and legends this term In English. They studied Pandora's Box and got busy with their own ideas for an extended writing adventure story based on this Greek myth. They were all thoroughly involved in this writing project and wrote some very imaginative and creative versions of their own. Well done Year 5!
25th April 2017. 5K and 5N had the opportunity to demonstrate their teamwork skills, when taking part in a tag rugby session in the mini arena.They dodged, weaved and passed the ball very effectively! Can you spot the rugby stars of the future?
April 2017 - Welcome to the Summer Term in Year 5, where this week, we launched our exciting new topic... Ancient Greece. We are looking forward to finding out all about the Ancient Greeks and have begun by researching and creating our own information posters, using the ipads.
Year 5 have been very fortunate to take part in the +Sport Move and Learn Project. This initiative aims to foster an enjoyment of movement and physical activity among children through building an understanding of the importance of exercise and balanced diets for a positive lifestyle. The year 5's accessed a range of sporting activities through football, handball and dodgeball sessions. They very much enjoyed the theory based learning as well as getting active on the school field! They even got to meet Grecian the Lion in their final session after receiving their certificates!
Welcome to Year 5!
