Working together, learning together

This week in PE we have been trying Volleyball for the first time. We really enjoyed volleying the ball to see who could get it the furthest.


In DT and topic we have been learning all about where our food comes from and how farm animals are looked after.


In English, we have really enjoyed learning about Philippe Petit who walked between the Twin Towers on a tightrope!


We were amazed to find out that he wasn’t even nervous to perform the dangerous stunt!


We have really enjoyed learning a new skill in Maths to measure angles with a protractor.

Year 5 


Here are some questions you might like to ask your child:


  • How do farmers look after animals?
  • What did Philippe Petit achieve?
  • What is an acute angle?
