Welcome to Year 5.

We are excited to begin our Autumn term with our topic 'Shhh, Walls Have Ears',
a World War 2 theme that will embark on a mission that covers local history links, war associated literature alongside the arts inspired and performed from that time period.

Furthermore, our new Year 5 pupils will soon embark on a host of 'Widening Horizons'
career based educational visits and workshops.

 

See our Autumn Curriculum Poster and Letter for further details.

 

Christmas festivities in Year 5!

Victory Party! 

To bring our topic to a close, Year 5 and 6 joined together for a VE Party! We had an indoor street party, and an afternoon full of singing, dancing, fun and cake!

Fire safety visit 

Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from some firefighters from Greenbank fire station. They talked to us about fire safety in the home, and things we should do and know to help us stay safe. We also learnt about the dangers caused by hoax calls and what to do if we ever find a fire. Here are some questions we’ve been asking, can you answer them all? See below for the answers! 

 

  • Should your home have a smoke alarm?
  • How often should you check your smoke alarm?
  • How do you check a smoke alarm?
  • How often should you change the batteries on a smoke alarm? 
  • Is it important to know your home postcode?
  • What should you do if you discover a fire? 
  • What should you do if a fire catches your clothing? 

 

Have you answered them all? Check the answer key below to see if you were right! 

 

  • Absolutely, yes! Your home MUST have at least one smoke alarm. If there are obstacles to this, let us know and we may be able to help. 
  • Each smoke alarm should be checked every week. The suggestion is to go with ‘Check it Tuesday’. 
  • You can check a smoke alarm by pressing the button (usually in the middle). 
  • The batteries of a smoke alarm should be changed every year. 
  • It’s really important to know your home postcode in case you ever need to call for help. This would enable the emergency services to get to you very quickly. 
  • If you discover a fire you should get to a safe place and call 999. Do not go back for belongings and do not attempt to fight the fire yourself. 
  •  If your clothing were to catch fire, you must follow these steps. First,stop. This prevents increased oxygen from further spreading the flames. Then cover your face to reduce smoke inhalation. Next drop to the floor and roll. Keep rolling until help arrives, or you are certain the fire is out.

Maths: Place Value

During this Autumn term, we have had a big focus on Place Value in our Maths lessons. To consolidate our learning, in small groups, we had a go at creating a vast selection on 2, 3 and 4 digit values of Roman Numerals on the school playground
