Year 5’s topic this term was “The Vikings Are Coming!”.

Year 5 played the game 'Exquisite Corpse' in English to help them create a monster.  They wrote a description of their monster before they went on to writing instructions based on how to trap him/her!


A Monster!

In Maths, Year 5 learnt how to multiply a three-digit number by a two-digit number.  Their knowledge of times tables really helped them!


Careful concentration!

Year 5 showed off their creative skills; their fabulous writing was sent off to be entered in the West Sussex Writing Competition. Good luck Year 5!

Autumn Term 2018

Our topic this term was "Into The Unknown".

Year 5 had a very creative start to the term and all made their own skyship in preparation for their 'Brightstorm' topic.  In addition to this, they enjoyed the visit and workshops from Vashti Hardy and afterwards wrote their persuasive text to become a member of the crew.

It was an exciting time on Times Tables Rockstars, with Year 5 and Year 6 going into a tournament battle against each other. The Staff were very proud of the level of participation resulting in their speed and accuracy in times table knowledge being dramatically improved.
