The Year 5 children have been lucky enough to have visitors from the Newcastle Eagles team to work with them on their budding basketball skills. From shooting to dribbling, the children have been working together in the MUGA to perfect their skills and they have...


What a start to the second week back! The sun was shining (although the temperature was cold - gloves were a must!) and the Year 5 children started their biking training. It was fantastic to see them all gain in confidence and I cannot wait to see how they will...

What a week!!!

5J have been showing no signs of slowing down this week! From sport to acting to dancing to repair work, we have done it all! It all started on Tuesday, with the fantastic Valentine's Disco...everyone looked fabulous and the dancing was competitive to say the least!...

Why is there a caravan in the yard?

Things were all a little bit strange on Friday, as we were greeted by the sight of a caravan, parked in the middle of the yard! Things did not get any more straight forward...wanted posters, suitcases, a fire, burnt paper, a   bike,  a strand of hair, handprints...we...

Singing Together

This year, on March 13th, we will be taking our school choir to Sage Gateshead to take part in this year's Spring Sing. This event is a great opportunity to showcase the talents of children from across the north east and join with others. This year, the...

Bienvenue! Wilkommen! Welcome! It has been a fantastic first week and a bit in Year 5, as the children have settled in extremely well! It’s a big jump up into Upper Key Stage Two but the children have coped maturely and with big smiles on their faces, which has been lovely to see! I can’t wait for our year to properly begin!

Creative Homework Deadline!








A week in the life of Year 5…

We have enjoyed reading our new story, ‘This is NOT a fairytale’ and discussing all of the various, interesting characters; we have looked a numbers in countless different ways for our maths unit on place value; then, we pondered space and what we could discover about the Earth, Moon and Sun; before travelling back in time to look at the Mayans and just why should we even know about them? Spoiler: they were very, very important (and interesting, too)! As well as all of the time, we even squeezed in a bit of forest school time, which the children all love – as you can see, with them standing proudly in their dens! As I said, a fantastic but very busy week, which I hope has set the tone for the rest of the term (year!) ahead.

Quick reminders for the children to have their PE kits in on a Monday (for the whole week), along with homework on the check point Mondays, as outlined on their homework grid. Every Wednesday for three terms, the children in 5J will also be swimming (which is very exciting) so please ensure swimming towels and costumes are packed ready for their Wednesday swim!

The children will also need to bring in their reading diaries, with three signed entries from an adult at home, weekly to be signed in school! Reading books will be coming shortly…

Phew! First week done and the children have settled in brilliantly. We have definitely ‘hit the ground running’!
