This afternoon, year 5 looked at Batik artwork and used melted wax and wells to begin creating their Batik designs. Next step: adding dye!


Dear Parents/ carers,

It is incredibly important that the children are completing their homework.

Children should be completing:
Daily reading – this can be done online through Bug Club or using the school books which they can bring home.

Daily times tables/ spellings -. After Easter, weekly times table activities will resume in their homework books. Spellings will continue to be stuck into homework books.

Additional activity – this will be stuck into their homework books and will differ weekly.

As many children are losing their homework sheets, we will be asking them to stick everything in on a Monday when their book returns home.

Books will continue to be handed in on Friday and returned on a Monday after Easter.

Please can children bring their homework books in this Thursday so that Easter homework can be given to them.

Thank you for your support,

Year 5.

PE Days after Easter

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please be aware that our PE days are changing after the Easter holidays. We will now be having outdoor PE on Mondays and indoor PE on Tuesdays. Please ensure as always that your child attends school in the correct PE kit for those days.

Over the summer term, Year 5 will also be going swimming, however we will provide more information about exact start dates for this closer to the time.

Kind regards,


The Year 5 Team

Delaunay Colours

Today, Year 5 learnt about Simultanism which is when a colour can appear differently based on its surrounding colours. The children used this knowledge to create abstract art involving pattern and colour by choosing a repeating theme colour alongside other colours.
