Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

A Happy New Year to everyone.

Thank you all very much for the cards and generous gifts at the end of last term.  They were very much appreciated.

Today Year 5 visited Buckingham University.  We did three activities: a scavenger hunt around the campus, a computing activity and a business challenge.  We had a great time!





We are going to have a good year - you are Upper Key Stage 2 now so you will have more responsibility and more challenges to face.  I'm sure you are all ready!!!

We have some interesting topics to study and some exciting activities to do.  Please see the Curriculum Statements for this term below.


Great Christmas jumpers today, Year 5!  What a festive bunch we looked.

Here's a picture of Santa with two helpers!!!





What a great morning we had today at Akeley enjoying shared activities with the Foundation Stage pupils.  You were all great role models helping and supporting the younger children, especially when you heard them read.  Well done!  We will certainly do it again.









Tuesday, 14th November is our Viking Day at Stowe.  Please wear warm clothes (waterproof coat) and comfortable shoes for lots of walking.  Remember to bring your packed lunch and drinks for the day.

Well done in our Remembrance Assembly today.  You had all written very movin prayers and those of you who read them out did so beautifully.
