Wonderful Writing – Pine and Poplar!

During our first week back in Literacy we have practicing how to change our sentence structures to improve the quality of our writing. We then used these skills to write a setting description based on a futuristic image. Miss Caldwell has chosen Max and Miss Middleton has chosen Daisy as their writer of the week!


Taking a deep breath, Kyron stepped out of his tough time machine, wondering if his machine had actually worked. Dangerously, he began to sneak forwards towards the tallest building. His eye were widening and his teeth were chattering as he gazed at this unimaginable and mind-blowing place, hoping that he can get out alive. Bones cracking, jaw dropping, he got spotted, so he jumped into the powerful flowing river, praying the escape and stay alive!



Excited yet shocked, Rosey tip-toed cautiously towards the magical future ahead of her. She thought to herself “Am I day dreaming?”. She then looked up and she saw tall, pointy buildings towering over her. The buildings were as sharp as needles. Bravely, she walked closer to the beautiful sunset of the bright yellow sun blinding her. She looked at her attractive reflection as her eyes spotted herself in the shimmering ocean.

Medieval Paper!

To end of Medieval England topic, we have had a go at making authentic Medieval paper by tea staining it. We have then been publishing our letters from the Rats to Pestilence on our paper.

Heart-Warming Homework!

For our latest piece of Literacy homework, the Year 5s had to do a piece of creative writing based around an image. Miss Middleton and Miss Caldwell were overwhelmed with so many fantastic pieces of writing! The quality of the work was brilliant. We have added photos of some of our favourite pieces of writing! Well done Year 5s.

Diwali Poems!

In RE we have been learning about Hinduism. In one of our lessons we created acrostic poems about the Hindu festival of Diwali. We then published our poems and they look fantastic, celebrating the festival of lights!

Year 5’s Medieval Banquet

Throughout this half term, our topic has been based on England in the Middle ages. As part of a ‘Design and Technology day’ we all tried following a medieval recipe (an unusual type of ginger bread) and then transformed our classrooms into banquet halls ready for the other Year 5 class to dine in (all accessories designed and created by the children!).

Coats of arms!

Today, in our history lesson, we looked at coats of arms. We looked at what a coats of arms is, what the main features are and we also researched the meanings behind what certain animals, symbols and colours represent.

We then had a go at making our own coats of arms, based on our own personalities! Everyone made such a fantastic effort with their coast of arms, that it was so hard to chose just one! Instead, I have chosen two of my favourite ones which are…………………………….


Haniya and Elsie! Well done girls!

I particularly like Haniya’s because she has magpied some latin words from the ‘Harry Potter’ coats of arms. I really like that Elsie has included her date of birth in roman numerals.

Well done to everyone for producing such fantastic work!
