Welcome to Year 5!
We are looking forward to an exciting and progress filled year with your children. This is an especially important year while we work with your children to achieve the levels required to enter year 6 and secondary school. We hope you enjoy seeing some of the things that your child has done.

What a fantastic experience the Year 5 classes had visiting Europa Town at Bexley Grammar School.
On arrival the children filled in Spanish passports and successfully went through passport control after answering questions in Spanish.
After that, they were free to visit any stall: the fruit and veg shop, the clothes shop, the post office and more. As long as they asked for what they wanted in Spanish, they could ‘buy’ anything. Many children brought some of their own pocket money to spend on real ice cream and juice in the café.
After exploring Europa Town, the children sat in small groups for a puppet show of ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’ in Spanish. Well done to all the children for using their Spanish skills. Mrs Ermis
We are not there YET! This is our growth mindset for this school year, there are things that we are learning, things that we can do and can't do yet. In year 5 we know that if we can't do something yet, that we work towards learning how or understanding. Here are some of the things that we are working to be able to do soon!
In Year 5, we are learning about
different forces such as gravity,
air resistance and magnetic forces.
We are investigating how we use them in our lives.
On Wednesday 26th September, Year 5 explored Argentina. They studied its culture, geography and art. They did fantastically recreating the famous cave art from la Cueva de las Manos, which is around 13,000 years old.
This year we are excited that we have the sports coaches coming in and it is especially important that your child be prepared with their PE kit to make the most of this opportunity. Children are expected to have: black plimsolls, white tshirt, black/grey shorts and jogging bottoms and sweat shirt, as they will be going outside when dry.
