An amazing year, an amazing class, have a brilliant summer you all deserve a break. Get some rest, get some sun - if we have any and do something different. It has been a pleasure teaching you all this year. I honestly can't believe it is the end of the school year. It has flown by, we have done so many amazing things no doubt next year will bring the same.
Enjoy your break all!
What a few days we've had. Sports day 2019 was brilliant - not too hot and excellent attitudes all round. Very proud of the class for walking around sensibly, showing they are ready for year 6. A huge well done to OAK for taking the title. Bring on next year.
Then today we were at Elliot House care home. All of the children that came showed a fantastic caring attitude towards the residents. Listening to stories, holding conversations and showing such maturity. Well done 5S - I am very proud of you all. Don't forget the unforgettable performances of 6 songs including dance moves. The enjoyment was infectious and had residents up and dancing/ singing along - Well Done 5S. So proud of you all. You have all matured so much this year.
1 week left - have a nice weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
Day 5 of week 6 of month 7 in the year 2019 on this rocketshiip of a planet we call Earth. In Mr Barton's class we have been learning some songs for our Fab finish next week when we are going to sing at a care home and ask some questions about the past.
All the songs are below that need to be learnt. Have a look over the weekend.
Make sure you get outside and wear plenty of sun lotion. Enjoy the sun. Have a great weekend and I will see you Monday.
OUR PLANTS ARE GROWING.
The plants have grown so well, I am very impressed. Not sure how big they will get but they look smart. I have filled the trays with water for the weekend so hopefully they will survive while we have a heat wave. I have a good feeling they will. Only 3 weeks left for them to get some serious height - start to think about where you will plant them.
Wednesday is a big day next week as it is transition morning for moving into year 6. Very exciting times. The class are beginning to feel ready for year 6. They will find out which class they are in on Wednesday morning.
Have a great weekend and try and get some fresh air as it should be lovely weather.
14.6.19 - A week of tests are complete.
Great attitudes all round. Well done 5S, nice to see children showing off with everything they have learnt this year.
We had a very good conversation as a class as well involving Mrs Gaynor and Mr Hartley about the app TikTok. Please take on board all of the advice we have given you this week.
Online Safety is such an important part of education these days, we want to ensure that everybody is working together to help keep children safe.
Hope everyone has a great weekend
A great week including a WOW starter and a cricket tournament. What a fantastic welcome back.
Remember next week is test week, make sure you check your times table knowledge and have a practise of your spellings.
Have a great weekend. Hopefully the sun will come out. Come on Summer!
Mosaic Madness this week, great work from the class. Creating Roman Mosaics.
We have been working hard on Fractions for the past 2 weeks and have one more week of it left before we move onto Roman Numerals. It would be great if you want to have a practice before hand.
An extended write next week. Maybe write something create this weekend for your own Roman legend story, this will most certainly be a useful tool for next week.
Have a great weekend everybody.
Hopefully the sun will be out
A very warm welcome back.
A strange week this week with an election day in the middle, I think you all handled it so well.
We have started our new Topic 'Master Builders', which will be focusing on the Romans. Our WOW starter was using lego to recreate Hadrians wall. I must say I was incredibly impressed with the walls you made. Such good team work and creativity. Well done all of 5S. They all looked great.
Enjoy all the pictures from the week.
From earthquakes to eruptions and year 3 visiting to more eruptions. Brilliant effort all.
I hope you all have a super Easter Break. You all deserve it. Stay safe, help out at home and enjoy a good rest.
Enjoy the snaps!
Thank you to everyone that came to the inspire workshop on Thursday I hope you enjoyed it. The children certainly did, which is always great to see.
1 week left and still working hard. The class are really trying their best at he moment at doing some brilliant work.
Also a little reminder for parents evening next week. My Tuesday is now full. How ever I have plenty of slots free on Thursday, I would like to see as many of you as possible.

5S YOU DID IT AGAIN!!!
We have welcomed Rosie into our classroom, so much work has gone into our lining up at school, so sensible now. There is a huge thank you to our lining up captain.

Have a brilliant weekend all!
Day 4 of the week in 5S - 14.3.19
Today has been an interesting morning. With a shorter English lesson, this meant time to get hands on some felt tip pens. It was great to see mix up of paired work as well. Children working with partners they wouldn't normally work with.
Great work with noun phrases and then adding in direct speech to move the story on and bring the story to life.
Teaching Time Zones with Mr Barton.
You need one world map, 2 children to be the world, a child to be the sun, 13 ipads and 1 phone call to Texas to prove that it was the morning over there.
Overall a fantastic afternoon with Time Zones, all children showed a brilliant attitude and understanding. Well Done 5S. Keep up the hard work.
Don't forget spelling test next week.
ThinkTank trip Monday
Last but not least bring in Home Readers for Friday.
Have a great weekend
Sorry I didn't send them home with spellings today.
Here are the weekly spellings:
The class have worked so hard today on all of their writing. They especially enjoyed writing to the president of the 'Flat Earth Society'. Once the letters are finished I will choose a couple to send off to them and see what response we get. Should be an interesting one.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Next week Maths in Year 5 is telling the time - so get practicing this weekend.
Working hard all week 5S, I can see some brilliant progress across the board. Well Done!!!
REMEMBER HOME READING JOURNALS EVERY FRIDAY

From a Mexican Fiesta to a Christmas party I think that we have covered all of our bases now.
So much fun this afternoon all the children had a great time.
Brilliant effort with 'Mr Barton's super awesome snowman building adventure game 2018' I think this must be the best year of snowman/ snowwoman building ever. Well Done all.
Enjoy the pictures of all the events of the weeks.
Hopefully I will get a chance to blog again tomorrow. If not, I hope you all have a brilliant Christmas and new year. I look forward to seeing you all when you are back.
With our class Christmas party on the horizon it would be great if you're able to donate any food. It would be great to get a mixture of sweet and savoury, any contributions will be welcome.
Only 3 days to go!
I believe these will look fantastic when we are finished. A nice collection of Day of the Dead masks for our Mexican Fiesta on Monday 17th December.
Watch out for more details on this.
As you can see we had a very fun Topic lesson this week.
Great to see so many of them trying new food.
I have sent all the children home with their lyrics for the Christmas production so it would be great if they could have a practice over the weekend, We have quite a few rehearsals next week. So get plenty or rest and be ready to hit the ground running.
Have a super weekend and I'll see you Monday
A fantastic inspire workshop.

Who could forget a big shout out to table 10 for excellent listening skills.

WHAT A WEEK!
From it being anti-bullying week, having NSPCC work shops, children in need own clothes day and our class assembly I hope all of 5S have enjoyed a well deserved rest this weekend.
Thank you all parents that came on Friday to our class assembly, what a performance they all put on. They put in such a big effort and showed a lot of enjoyment when they were performing.
The NSPCC workshop was brilliant as well. The whole class showed that they were engaged and wanted to get involved. A brilliant understanding all round on what they need to do if they ever need advise or extra guidance. Well done 5S.
Have a good night sleep and I will see you all in the morning
A lovely welcome back to you all from half term
You have been working incredibly hard this week! And it's so nice to see some homework already coming in. You really have put a lot of effort into it all.
Your fraction work has been fantastic this week. I am so impressed with everything that you already know!
Thank you to everyone who came this afternoon it's always so nice to have parents and carers come in, it always means so much to the children.
They really have worked so hard on these Mayan necklaces over the past few weeks. From designing, explaining, creating, painting and exhibiting they have done so well.
Well Done 5S.
See you all in the morning
What a warm welcome back from the class. We've had a very busy week but have managed to achieve a lot - which is fantastic. I am more than happy to announce that I am back and so glad to be. I just wanted to thank all pupils and parents for being so understanding.
The class are working incredibly hard at the moment we need to keep this up.
Just a little reminder about the English homework this week. It's to research Chichen Itza
I want as many amazing facts as possible!
Have a great weekend
