Year 5(1)


On Wednesday Year 5 were visited by a magician, he taught us lots of number tricks and performed some amazing magic, it was great to see.


On Thursday year 5 went on the train to Edale, a green rural community, where they were comparing the area to Hyde. The children took part in a treasure hunt by reading grid references and following maps through the countryside. 

Bike Ability Course

This week Year 5 have been taking part in a bike ability course. The course aims to teach children how to stay say on the roads when riding their bike. The children had a great time on the course. 

Year 5 Letter


Welcome to Year 5, I am really looking forward to getting to know your children and watching them progress this year, they have already made a great start. Please make sure that I am kept up to date with any changes in circumstances so that we can work together to provide the best support for your child.   

READING- It is very important that your child remembers to bring their reading book to school EVERY DAY and takes it home to read at night. If you can support your children with this, I would be very grateful.

HOMEWORK- Please support your child with their homework. Homework books must be signed by a parent and handed in on a Wednesday so that they can be marked and prepared to be handed back on the Friday. It has been great to see lots of creativity in their homework, please continue to encourage them to choose a variety of different challenges from the choice board and support them where possible.

PE KITS- Please remember to keep your child’s PE kit in school so that it is available for lessons. It can be washed at half term.

Mr Burgess


Pilgrim Day

On Friday, Year 5 went to Chester Cathedral to take part in a Pilgrim day. The day included lots of activities linked to our faith. We learnt lots about the Cathedral in Chester and the monks that used to live there. Some children explored the towers, others took part in craft activities and flew some birds of prey. It was a memorable day!
