Friday 14th December


Welcome to this week’s blog from Year 5F. We have had another hectic week!


English – This week, we have continued looking at our class novel, How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. The children have been thinking about how to describe a character. They have continued using an Imagine 3 Sentence to describe a mythical creature. Here are some examples from the children…


Imagine a creature who flies in the moonlight, who has wings like an angel, who down from the sky: the mystical unicorn is such a creature.

By Olivia


Imagine a monster who terrorises the sea, who has teeth as sharp as razors, who has glowing green eyes: the Sea Dragon is such a monster.

By Neve


Imagine a creature who bathes in mud, who is as green as grass, who lives in a stinky swamp: ___________ is such a creature.

Can you guess who Casey is describing?

Maths – The children have been multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1,000 this week. They have been showing off to their teachers what they have been learning so far this term in assessment tasks. This Bingo game will help you to practise multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 at home.

Science – The children have been learning about the lifecycles of a human. They have thought about how humans are different in each stage of their development. They have created a pictorial lifecycle in their books.


Topic – The children have been learning about two Anglo-Saxon kings, Alfred the Great and his grandson Athelstan. Both these monarchs are remembered for their valiant struggles with the mighty Vikings and their heathen army. The children created posters about each monarch and then discussed which was the greatest and explained why. They have also been learning about Danelaw (the land ruled by the Vikings).


Here is our certificate winner this week. She won for an improved all-round effort. She has realised the importance of good attendance and giving 100% in all her lessons.

Just a QUICK REMINDER that next Thursday 20th December is the Year 5 CHRISTMAS PARTY. The children are allowed to come into school in their party clothes. However, please ensure that their clothing is suitable for the cold weather we have been having. Many thanks.


All that remains to say is have a great weekend. We will see you again on Monday.
