Our Class Vision







April 2020

In year 5, we have used Scratch to help us design games and quizzes this year. We had lots of fun, creating something which was linked to our topic. Scratch can be used at home via the Scratch website here or by downloading the Scratch offline Editor. Wanting to create your own game but not sure where to start? Click on the images below to watch a few videos which will teach you how to create a game.

English - June 2017

In English lessons we have been working on writing exciting short stories, with lots of description and adverbials of time, place and manner.

Well done to Hari who created a very tense and fast paced Hostage story! His writing includes lots of detailed description, adverbial openers and a great use of paragraphs for organisation. When we shared the story in class, we could really imagine what being in the story was like, which means Hari has used great imagery to engage the audience. Well done Hari, keep up the hard work!



Topic Work - June 2017

During our topic lessons, we have been learning about Ancient Greece. We have learnt about democracy, Gods and Goddesses, and the origins of the Olympic Games.

A big well done to Sophie, who created this wonderful Greek vase to show the Olympic sport of javelin. She used similar colours and tones to the Ancient Greeks, and even managed to make the body look like it was moving. Sophie has made a huge improvement in her art work recently- we are very proud of her!
