Year 5 Latest News


Last week in Year 6

Year 6 loved the ice cream van. It was such a special treat and we enjoyed the yummy slush puppies and ice cream. Mr Beggs, Miss Murray and Miss Armstrong even got ice cream and they loved it too.

As you can see from the smiles on our faces we had so much fun on the bouncy castle.


Year 6 have had a fantastic fun week. We started the week by painting our clay Vikings. We had so much fun and our teachers thought we did a wonderful job.


Egyptian Day

Y5 enjoyed a day travelling to Ancient Egypt.  We wore headbands and necklaces that we’d made We designed and played a pyramid game and used co-ordinates to find an Egyptian artefact. It was a great way to learn and have fun. We hope you enjoy our Ancient Egyptian jokes

  1. What did King Tut say when he had a nightmare?
  2. I want my mummy!


  1. What chocolate did the Egyptians eat?
  2. Pharoh-rochere

Christmas Jumper Day

It's been a busy start for Year 5

We are happy to be back at school to see our friends again.
It is a bit different this year with lots of new rules to keep us safe. We spend lots of time washing our hands. 
We have still been able to have fun though – playing outside with our friends and taking part in fun learning games on our individual whiteboards.

Welcome back to school

We are staying safe in our bubble! To stay safe we keep our distance. We are all happy to be back at school.
