What a lovely end to the week, with our fantastic liturgy leaders leading the whole school in a lovely liturgy. I’m really looking forward to our four leaders using their new skills within our class.

This week we have been learning about perimeter and area in maths.

In Literacy we have started our new book Millions. We have learnt about persuasive writing. We had to persuade Miss Cheetham why we deserve extra play and now we are writing our own persuasive text: Why should Damien and Anthony give you £2million?

We have begun our new topic: Can technology save the world? We are all really enthusiastic about this and even asked Miss Cheetham if we could turn the lights off to save energy!

Have lovely weekend!

As you may already know, as part of our preparation in Advent we will be holding simple Advent services in our classroom at the end of the day. We would love to offer you the opportunity to join us at 3pm.
Mrs Clack has a sign up sheet in the office for our class. Our services will be held on :

Tuesday 5th
Thursday 7th
Tuesday 12th
Thursday 14th
Friday 15th
Tuesday 19th
There will be spaces for 5 parents at each slot.
Also we will be sending a prayer format home for the children to write a simple prayer. Please don’t panic as these should be simple child led prayers for us to share in our services. The children should return their prayer to school as soon as possible, at the latest Monday 5th.
Many thanks,
Miss Cheetham

Year 5 are Superstars!


I just want to say how impressed I was with the whole class today during their assembly.

All the children have worked so hard to produce such a fantastic assembly. Thank you to all the parents who have supported the children in learning their parts and those who came to watch the children in action.

As Mr Conway mentioned if you took any photos please forward them to me at I will try to put a collection on here at the end of next week.

Well done, you made me super proud!

Miss Cheetham



Hi all,

I’d just like to remind you all about the assembly on Friday. I’m really looking forward to the children showing you their hard work.

I’ve been asked about the clothes for Children in Need. I would like the children to come in the clothes they need for the assembly (They should know what they need to wear. It is either something brightly coloured or smart, if they have a presenting role). They can come straight into the classroom from 8.40, so we can be ready. I will then give them chance to change into their Children in Need clothing after the assembly.

I hope this clears things up!

Miss Cheetham

Welcome back


Welcome back!

I hope you all had a fabulous half term break. I’m really looking forward to the rest of this term.

Next Monday we have our trip to Weston Park Museum. I am still looking for 2 parent volunteers, if you could volunteer please let me know asap by email.

Next Friday (17th) is our class assembly. I know the children will all be fantastic. Please support the children in learning their part.

Best Wishes,

Miss Cheetham


Week 6


Last Monday started with a very exciting morning. We completed 5 different science experiments all related to space. We enjoyed exploring impact testing, rocket launching, parachutes, orbits and insulation.

We started working towards our next big write- a diary extract! We explored the different features and have looked at contractions and compound sentences.

In maths we have focused on column addition and subtraction.

Best wishes,

Miss Cheetham
