Welcome to Year Five!
Year Five is a great place to learn! Everyone is encouraged to aim high. We always try to do our best and sometimes we even give that little bit extra!

An action packed week filled with so much fun!
OUTDOOR ELEMENTS DAY
We absolutely loved our day with the Outdoor Elements Team. We spent the morning developing our survival skills and working together on problem solving activities. In the afternoon, despite the poor weather conditions, we had a fabulous archery session on the field.
In Year 5 we had great fun looking for angles in the school yard. We can identify them, name them and estimate the angles degrees.
Children in Need
The theme of this year's Children in Need was 'Superheroes'. In class we thought about the qualities of an ordinary hero and learned how important these people are in our everyday lives.

During Level 1 Bikeability training, the children will learn to control and master their bikes. The training takes place in an environment away from cars or traffic – usually in a playground.
During Level 2 Bikeability training, the children will get out on the roads! Level 2 gives them a real cycling experience so that they are able to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school.
