Nature Walk


Ast week, Year 5 had a great time on a nature walk before returning to dissect flowers. We were looking carefully to see the reproductive parts of the flowers and made some amazing close observations. 

Fantastic Poetry Skills

So far this term, we have been looking at a range of classic poetry, including cautionary tales by Hilliare Belloc and Lewis Carroll. The children have been studying Isabel, by Ogden Nash and have successfully emulated his style. Here are a few wonderful examples which showcase greater language choices, effective rhythm and intriguing subjects.


Nature Walk Tomorrow

Dear Parents/Carers,


Year 5 will be completing their postponed Nature Walk tomorrow (6th May). Please ensure that your child comes to school in clothing suitable for the outdoors, including waterproof coat and a change of shoes. We aim to observe the change of season, the different parts of a flower and the potential impact of the development on the hedgerow habitat.


Thank you,


The Year 5 Team

Parents’ Evening Calls

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please remember that we will be completing parents’ evening calls this week. We will be calling from an unknown number, so if this is around the time of your appointment it is likely to be us. If you miss your allocated time, please do not call the office as we will call you again at the earlier possible time. Please be mindful that we have no free slots so this may be after 5:30.

We will be talking through the snapshot of your child’s learning which has been stuck into their diary.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Arthurs and Mr Banfield.
