Reading Ideas for Year 5
Reading is an important part of all children's development. Here we are providing a list of books, which have previously been sent out to you. Please see below.
What are common exception words?
Common exception words are words where the usual spelling rule doesn't apply. Some of these exception words are used frequently, so children are introduced to common exception words in different year groups. You will find below words lists for Year 1and 2; Year 3 and 4 and lastly Year 5 and 6.
We have made these available for you to see, so you can share these with your children but also allow you to see what types of words children are being asked to know at each stage. The children should be able to read and spell them.
Pine's History Workshop
As part of our Harry Potter work, we played Quidditch in our PE and Games lessons. The children loved running around with their broomsticks. Here is a video of Pine class in action.

All of the children in Year 5 went on a very exciting visit to Sell Manor in Birmingham. This was to bring to life their learning and develop their understanding of the Tudor period for their History topic.

Design and Technology
The Year 5 classes measured and designed their nets, which they cut out to assemble their Tudor houses. This Technology activity, with cross-curricular links to the children's History studies, involved measuring of lines and angles in the construction process.
