Healthy Me Week

First Aid Training

We had First Aid Training with Ray, where we learnt how to bandage an arm, put someone in the recovery position and all about the brain.

AFC Bournemouth - Food f0r Football Talk

We learnt about the different food groups and what meals footballers have pre-match, before the match and after the match, to help them performance at their best!

Julia's House Run - Go the Extra Mile

To kick start the week, we had Julia's House in to do a fun run. The weather prevented us from going outside, so we stayed in the hall to run laps while listening to music. Julia's House were cheering us on and said how amazing our determination and attitude was.

Dancing in PE

In our PE lessons, we have been learning the Haka. We learnt one and then added our own sound effects to it. To develop the movement, we use canon, unison and repetition.

We have also been doing some Just Dance - we have pretty awesome skills!

Anglo-Saxon Broaches

In Topic, we have been learning about Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We have enjoyed learning about how and why they invaded Britain, and what influences they have had. We also researched and designed our own Anglo-Saxon broach, where we used paper mache and metallic paint. We then created a modern-inspired broach!

Christmas Disco Ready!

We had a great time at the disco - even though lots of us were feeling poorly!

We even got to have some of Miss West's glitter!

Year 5 Stargazing Evening

On Thursday 21st November, Year 5 children, parents, grandparents and staff all gathered to gaze at our fascinating solar system. We arrived in our onesies (Mr France even managed to find one!) and begun the evening. We shared some of the great work that we have been doing about Space during our Science lessons – sharing the order and information about each planet.

We looked at each other’s Phases of the Moon projects, which created an exciting buzz! Everyone was blown away by the amazing work done by parents and children. Even though there was a little bit of rain, we were able to use our iPads to explore the solar system. We were able to search for planets and constellations, and the app would find them for us!

The evening came to a warming end whilst a cup of hot chocolate and a biscuit was enjoyed by all!

Our Amazing Phases of the Moon Projects

Children in Need

We dressed up as 'Sporty' to raise money for Children in Need this year. To go with the 'Sporty' theme, we went into the hall with the rest of KS2 and complete an Active Eight with Joe Wicks. It was great fun and it got our bodies working!

We also had a winner in our class for the Best Dressed!

Silk Painting

We created a 'Space' painting on silk. These are going to be our calenders for next year. 


Learning to Speak Greek

We were very lucky to have a Mum come in to teach us Greek. She is actually from Greece so we were able to ask lots of questions. She let us write our names in Greek and the taught us how to greet each other in Greek. 


Ancient Greek Drama Day

We had a fantastic day with Treehouse Theatre Company learning about War and Peace in Ancient Greece.

Hidden Figures

For our next Reading into Writing Topic, we are looking at Hidden Figures, written by Margot Lee Shetterly. We became members of NASA where we discuss what we already knew and what we would like to find out about the Space Station. 

Osprey Bronze Ambassadors

Here are the new Bronze Ambassadors from Osprey class. We have had to apply for these roles and we are very excited to start them!


This half term, we have been doing football in our PE lessons with Miss West. We have been practising dribbling, passing, shooting, tricks and turns, and defending. we are looking forward to playing matches against each other. 



This term, we are going swimming!

It has been a fantastic start and we have been really excited to get back in the pool and further our swimming skills, working towards the national curriculum standards.

Meet the Teacher

We had a lovely afternoon when our parents came in to meet Miss West. They were able to have a look around the classroom and join us in making a Greek pot. 

Meet Shelly

In Osprey, we are proud to sponsor a hawksbill turtle. We researched and created a fact file about these turtles and why they are in danger. 

Did you know, hawksbill turtles go back to the same beach where they hatched to lay their own eggs?

Class Charter

We created our Class Charter, which we will follow throughout the school year, to make our classroom have the best learning environment.

 Our Dreams

We created dream jars where we wrote our dreams for the year and the future. We even added glitter to some of them, to add an extra bit of sparkle!

Friendship Recipe

We created a friendship recipe where we designed a poster to explain what ingredients are needed for a good relationship.

Collaboration Challenge

We were set the challenge of trying to make the strongest bridge only using 3 pieces of paper. We had to work together and test the strength of our bridges. One bridge was able to hold a pot of paint!

Summer Projects

We shared our Summer Projects that we made over the summer holiday. Everyone put a lot of effort into them and we all had a lovely summer.

Meet Osprey Class

We would like to introduce the new Osprey class! We have had an amazing first day at school and we cannot wait to see what the year brings. 

We hope you enjoy Year 5 and learn lots too.
