Friday 3rd November 2017:
It’s the end of another fantastic week in year 5. This week in English we have introduced a new book called 'Way Home' by Libby Hathorn. This book tells the tale of a homeless boy living rough on the outskirts of a busy city. We have also introduced a new topic on 'Brazil' which links closely to our previous 'Rainforest' topic, which the children enjoyed so much.
This week we have also had a fabulous visit from the RNLI - meet the lifeguards- water safety team. The children really enjoyed their visit and participated in activities whilst learning to stay safe around water.
Congratulations to our core value winner of the week who was Holly J.
Also a massive congratulations to our head teachers award winner Millie H for her fantasic inference skills.
Friday 10th November
It has been another great week in year 5. This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from the author illustrator Rob Lewis. All of the children attended a workshop with the author. It was lots of fun as he shared stories about his ideas and showed the children how to draw a sheep, reading a book on the toilet - ewww!!
Year 5 stars this week are:
Star of the week - Ruby P for being an amazing friend.
Core value winner - Holly S who is considerate.
Hand writer of the week goes to Natasha H.....well done you lot.
Friday 17th November
This week has been Anti-Bullying week and children across the school have been exploring different types of bullying. Each class have had the opportunity to role-play scenarios, watch anti-bullying videos and create their very own display.
Today was also Children in need and the children had a chance to dress up and raise money for charity. We even have a visit by the very cuddly, Pudsey bear. Thank you all for your generosity. We raised an impressive one hundred and eighty one pound and seventy pence!

We have had a very busy week in Year 5. This week the children have been writing their prequel to our class story 'Way home'. We have been looking at authors and what techniques they use to write their amazing stories, and trying them in our own writing. Make sure you read some of these excellent tales during invitation afternoon (Thursday 7th December).
Special well done to our Year 5 stars this week:
Jamie Craig: head teachers award.
Caleb Reed: Hand writer of the week
Jenna Foster: Winning the core value - considerate.
The end of another busy week in Year 5. The children have worked very hard to finished off their super newspaper reports in English this week. Everyone is very excited to show their fabulous work during invitation afternoon next Thursday.
With Christmas nearly upon us, rehearsals are now well underway for our KS2 performance. We have dabbled in watercolour for our class Christmas cards and have started thinking about our surprise item to make and sell at the craft fayre.
Special well done:
Aiden Dickson - Head Teachers Award.
Natasha Hickey - Core Value award (considerate).
Friday 8th August 2017:
Invitation afternoon was a great success - I hope you all enjoyed looking through your children's fabulous work. They have worked so hard this term and I am so proud of what they have achieved so far.
A special mention to some of the Year 5 boys and girls at Biddick Academy for a tremendous attitude and good sportsmanship for their Fatfield Academy football match.
What a lovely turn out for the Christmas reading event. It was so lovely to see some of you. The children were so excited because they all received a book of their choice.
A special well done to:
Sophie Wells received head teacher's award for superb effort in maths.
Natasha Hickey was nominated for our core value which was proud.
Pull a funny face!
Friday 12th January
Welcome back and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Can't believe it's the Spring term already! We have already been very busy in year five introducing our new topic Earth and Space. The children are really excited about this theme and are busy changing our classroom into the solar system. One of the areas to be transformed is our reading corner, which is now the 'reading rocket'. This will allow the children to read for pleasure, investigate space and discover and share new information.
Children will now have PE on a Thursday. PE kits should be brought into school on a Monday and go home on a Friday as sometimes this may change.
Well done to Warren for winning the Head Teacher's award for Maths.
Sam T for winning the core value vote for 'unique'.
Darcey for winning the handwriting award for her beautifully presented work.
Friday 26th January
To infinity and beyond!
We continue our space theme in year 5 this week as the children have been studying the planets in our Solar System. We have been placing the planets in order and we had the opportunity to take our inflatable planets out into the yard to demonstrate how the planets orbit the sun and how the moon orbits the Earth. It was a very dizzy experience.
We have also produced some fantastic non-chronological reports to complete the work on our English book The Lost Thing before we move onto our exciting Harry Potter novel in preparation for our amazing school trip to London.
Charlotte for receiving the Head teacher's award.
Lilly for winning the class vote 'considerate'
Ben for hand writer of the week.
