This week the Tiger Team have been learning how to convert metric units of measure. 


We have been writing a balanced argument relating to the banning of homework!


Our science week this week has involved learning about the water cycle as part of our topic studies into our 'Etreme Earth' 




Converting metric units of measure sheets. See me if you have lost it. 


Thanks to those parents who have asked for any additional activities and websites to help make learning tables more interesting. Below is a document with some websites I've found useful in the classroom. Also don't forget that your child's mathletics account has a section with interactive songs if you're feeling lively enough!
Spellings - Learn all of the spelling from our previous half-term block. Test 9/2/18

A Short Message


  • A massive thanks to parents and children for making our children in need day such a success. The school raised just over £200 pound but amazingly THE TIGER TEAM raised a fantastic £257 on their own through cake sales and bookmark selling! GREAT JOB TEAM!
  • Please remember to read and log your reading 5 times a week.
  • Please remember to practice your times tables 5 times a week for our 'Beat the Clock' challenge. 
  • If any parents want to come in and read with members of our class please contact the office or speak to me personally.

Thank you to all of the parents that were able to attend my  meeting on Tuesday. I appreciate that many working parents were unable to attend so have copied the presentation that I used and the 'What We Are Learning' document below. Also to help with the key info that I'd want to know, here is a brief summary:

  • Indoor and outdoor PE kits needed for Tuesday 
  • Swimming only for those who have been told by myself
  • Spellings handed out weekly
  • H/W handed out weekly (depending on type so see PowerPoint for details)
  • Ensure children are reading 10-15min 5 days a week and completing spellings 10min per day 5 days a week
  • Any 1:1 work with your child will be shown within their school home school organiser and reading record
  • Independence, resilience, challenge and enjoyment are the key concepts behind our learning journey in year 5
