A message to 5S

We hope that you and your families are all safe and well and that you have been able to enjoy some of the sunshine. There is a new tab on the class page called 'Home Learning'. If you click on this tab, you will be able to find lots of different activities for you to enjoy whilst you are home learning. This tab will be updated and added to regularly - so keep checking it. Please make sure you keep logging into the school website too - there will be discussions where we can share what we have done or things that we have seen etc. Don't forget, Showbie and Sumdog can be accessed from home too and we will be adding different maths challenges for you to complete. Each week, we will try to call you to find out how you are and what you have been keeping yourselves occupied with!

At the moment, we find ourselves in a very different and unusual situation. Life has changed tremendously in such a short amount of time. In school, you have always worked your hardest and consistently shown a huge amount of resilience in everything that you have done. At this moment in our lives, we are going to continue using our rhino resilience to overcome this strange situation.

We are very proud of each and everyone of you and we will keep in contact you during this unfamiliar time.

We hope to see you very soon. 

Stay safe and have fun!

Best Wishes, 

Miss Spencer and Mrs Elson



Our topic focus for the Summer Term is 'Have you got the bare necessities?'. This topic is focused around India and our class text is the wonderful story 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kippling. During this topic, we will be learning all about the exciting wildlife of India, different traditional indian traditions and ceremonies, Indian food and lots, lots more...


Chapters of 'The Jungle Book' are available for you to read are available on your Showbie account.


Remember, you can also log on to Showbie and upload any fantastic pieces of home learning or activities you have been doing. There is a new folder called 'Summer Home Learning' - please upoload any of your work there. It is always very exciting to hear/see what you have been up to.






In this class, we use all of our learning muscles in different ways. We work together as Ants, showing one another a new strategy for learning or supporting each other. We are resilient rhinos - Never giving up and making sure that we have put the most effort we can into an activity. We are resourceful beavers - Using resources in and around the classroom to scaffold our learning and support us in lessons. We are reflective tortoises - We look back on achievements and acomplishments. What went well? What did I learn? What do I need to improve on? How can I be even better than what I am already?

Home Learning

You can find lots of different activities to support your learning at home on the 'Home Learning' tab.



You will be able to access an electronic version of the homework grid using the class website. The children now have a section in their journals where the homework grid for each term will be stuck in. I have asked that children keep a record of when they have completed a task by getting a parent/or guardian to sign and date the box.



The children will be given weekly on a Monday. Please make sure that your child learns these spellings over the week as they shall be tested on the following Monday.



Children are encouraged to continue reading at home and keep a record of this in their journals. This can be a book they have chosen from the school library or one that they are reading at home. I will be checking the children's journals to see if they are keeping their reading record up-to-date. It does not always have to be a book! If you have found an interesting online article, maybe a film or game review or even a magazine, this all counts and strengthens your reading abilities.



PE is every Monday and Tuesday. Children will need both their indoor and outdoor kit with them at all times and these are to stay in school for the whole term. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school for these days. A list of the required Kit can be found on the 'Uniform' section of the school website.


Water bottles

All children have been provided with a school water bottle. These need to be kept in school during the week and taken home to be washed on a Friday.
