Welcome from Mr Vickery

Welcome to Parrots' Class!

Mr Vickery (or Mr V!) will be teaching Year 5. Miss Court will be supporting the children's learning. 

During the Spring Term, Year 5's P.E. sessions will be every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child is equipped correctly and ready to participate. They should have a house coloured P.E. top, black shorts, socks and plimsolls or sports trainers, all clearly labelled and kept in a P.E. bag. During the Spring Term,it is strongly advisable that, in addition to the above, they have a sports sweatshirt and/or a tracksuit. Health and Safety stipulate that school jumpers, coats and other casual clothing are unacceptable for P.E. All shoulder- length hair must be tied up and ear studs removed or taped up. Staff are not allowed to remove or put in studs but the school will provide tape if required. If your child is unable to take part in a P.E. lesson, a letter must be provide giving the reason why. Alternatively, a verbal explanation from the parent is acceptable.        

Have a look at some Year 5's amazing drawings of the Mary Rose!

On World Book Day, Year 5, along with Year 4 and 6, were fortunate enough to meet Kieran Larwood, a children's author. He explained how he came up with his characters and story lines, along with a key message to the children - 'Never give up, you can be successful if you keep trying and working hard!'

The children had an amazing day at the Mary Rose Museum. They learnt all about life on board the ship, studied the properties of different materials used by the Tudors and of course, saw the wreck itself!

Have a look at the slides below:  

Wow! What an amazing morning in the snow! Challenged with building the best snowman ever, Year 5 children went about their task with plenty of enthusiasm.....and plenty of fun! Once the snowman was built and a few snowball fights later, the children were back in the classroom writing about their morning - check out their amazing work below:

Wow! What an amazing start to the Spring Term! To discover what their topic is this term, the children were given a gruesome murder mystery to solve! Who was the victim? Who was the prime suspect? Why was she killed? The children were detectives for the morning and, with very little  to go on, set about trying to discover what had happened and why - check out the photos below!

All the children successfully discovered that the victim was Catherine Howard, one of Henry V111 wives, and that he was responsible for her death!

So, our topic for this term is the Tudors or......Divorced, Beheaded, Died...!

Thank you to all the parents who attended our class Christmas Crafts event - there were some interesting creations!

Congratulations to the following children for breaking their final book chain and releasing their chosen book. This is the reward of consistently reading at least 5 times a week!
