Year 5

December 2021

We have enjoyed listening to the story of The Nutcracker and have made our own decorations based on the Sugar Plum fairy and Nutcracker. These are now available to buy on ParentMail.

We designed and constructed our 3D masks using the Maya as inspiration...

During World Book Day activities in March, 5NC had some of their own suggestions for who the 'Masked Reader' could be.


Look at the PowerPoint below and see if you can guess who each person is!

Discover what elves and sprites get up out, there might be one hiding near you!

Year 5 Autumn Term 2020

During the first half of the Autumn Term, we did some well being activities to welcome the children back to school.  These included Archery and Pilates.  The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had a lot of fun!

Here are some photos of these events.

                  WORK FROM 2019 -SUMMER 2020

Welcome Back to Year 5 - Week 3

Some silliness to make you smile...

Hello year 5…we have made it! We are in the final week of the Summer Term! 


This week, we are asking the children in each class to decorate a puzzle piece (which will be sent to you if you are not in school), to bring back in September.  The idea is that each class will make a puzzle because we are in this together and the puzzle reflects that we are all part of one, united team.


Those children who have been in school have done or are about to do theirs.  Children in 5NC did theirs with images and words to show the positives of this time, such as playing in the paddling pool, going on walks and bike rides and family time. Other ideas include doing a self-portrait.  Paint or colouring pencils/pens can be used on the puzzle piece.  There will be a note alongside the puzzle piece, showing that we would like the ones being done at home a particular way up, with a diagram provided.  These will be put up in the new classrooms in September.


If you have any school library books still at home, please could these be returned to school, either with your child if they are in school on Thursday and Friday or left in a plastic bag with the office staff.


If your child would like anything from their tray, but haven’t been back, please email us on the year 5 email address to arrange collection.  Trays will be cleared, with any equipment sent across to the next class for September.


We will be sending home any work packs that we still have this week.  Those that have requested packs will still have the booklets available on Thursday to collect from the office.


Those of you that took the packs home on Friday (and those that collect packs from the office), we talked to you about an expected minimum time to spend on each subject for the next three days. They are also below as a reminder:


Please try to do this every day.



Times tables

15 minutes

Fractions work

10 minutes

Spelling & Grammar

10 - 15 minutes

Writing - The Great Scam

Most of the answers to the work are in the packs, so you can self-mark as you go. 


If you would like to use any resources over the Summer holidays, the daily schedule links for the BBC, Twinkl, Classroom Secrets (who have weekly learning packs and online activities) and Oak Academy have some resources still available. All the previous work and links will still be available on the webpage below.


You can contact us by emailing:



Please note that we cannot use the address to set you additional work, so please don’t use it for this purpose. If you want to email, put the class in the subject line so that we know who the email is for. We would love to hear from you.


Mrs Norris, Mrs Chapman and Mr Holmes.

Hello. It is Mrs Chapman here. I have a few funny pictures and videos to share with you from the last week.
This is the hedgehog that was rescued from my strawberry patch netting.  He had been trying to steal my lovely strawberries!  We took him to the vets to make sure he was O.K. and then released him at the back of the garden and watched him wander off.  He is huge, so we named him Chunky!

We thought you may like a fresh set of resources, all in one place!

We would like to share these resources with you, from the Robin Hood Learning Academy, who have produced weekly topic plans for parents to use.  Each week has its own theme, with maths, writing, reading and other subject links.  It links to many websites and resources that you may already have used and looks brilliant. Feel free to use the units as they are dated, or start with the one at the top.  Have fun!
