Autumn 1

The children in Key Stage two have been very busy this week learning how to perform CPR.  We were very lucky to receive some training on how to put a causlty into the recovery position and then how to perform CRP.


The children throughly enjoyed learning new skills.


The children have been busy learning about the features and order of recounts.  They have been reading each of the sections and then putting these into the correct order and then labelling them.

The children working on ordering parts of a recount.

In grammar, the children have been looking at using inverted commas to show who is speaking.

The children are enjoying learning about the Ancient Egyptians.  In science this week they have been learning about the ancient art of mummification.


The children worked in groups to mummify tomatoes - let’s see what happens to them at the end of the term.


Welcome back!


We hope you’ve had a lovely summer break and are ready to get back to school.


This term, in our topic, we will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians, looking at their lifestyle, the pharaohs and the different gods and goddesses.


In English we will be creating fact files about different aspects of Ancient Egyptian life, we will also be writing diaries based on the discovery of King Tutankhamen,s tomb and lastly creating fantasy stories about Ancient Egypt.


In Maths we will be re-visiting place value, using The White Rose resources. The rest of the term will be focusing on application of these skills looking at the four operations.


In Science we will be looking at mummification and the changes which happen as we grow older.

Ancient Egyptians



In year 5, homework is set on a Friday and is returned on a Thursday.

Your child will have the following pieces of homework every week:

reading (5 times at least a week); English, based on what they have been learning during the week; Maths, based on what they have been learning during the week; spellings.




Reading is crucial to your child’s learning as it provides the children with the opportunity to learn new words and  provide the children with the opportunity to see how different authors write.


It is an expectation that the children write in their own reading logs explaining what they have enjoyed about the book they have been reading; describing the characters and setting; explaining what has surprised them and any other comments they would like to write about the text.
