Our time in Year 5 has come to an end and although we are sad to be bringing the year to a close, we have all enjoyed celebrating the successes of the children and look forward to the new challenges of September.
This week all the children received an award for their individual successes. These were shared with the whole school during an assembly for Year 5.
We are very proud to announce that Jack was awarded with the Year 5 star of the year award and a cinema voucher – keep being amazing Jack!
Abigaile received the headteachers award, along with a cinema voucher – we’re sure she’ll be on the list again next year!
Jocelyn was one of the few children in school to receive cinema vouchers for her outstanding accomplishment of 100% attendance for the whole year – well done Jocelyn!
Miss Latimer and Mrs Walker would like to say a big thank you for the support we’ve received from parents throughout the year, the lovely messages and the gifts they received – working with the children this year has been an absolute pleasure and we look forward to seeing them continue to grow in Year 6.
Have a wonderful summer holiday!
See you in September.

In preparation for the school carnival next week, we have been exploring abstract art inspired by carnival and creating our own.
Thank you to all the parents who came along to our story afternoon. There are some very talented illustrators among you!
On Friday morning we joined the rest of the school and most of the country in taking a moment to think about the life of Bradley Lowery. Millie recorded a message on behalf of the class, which we tied to a balloon before releasing it with the balloons and messages from other classes.
Matthew received the class certificate this week for his ongoing positive attitude towards school and learning.
Mollie was added to the Golden Book for trying to be positive in everything she does, and Ella was added to the Golden Book for her improved attitude to learning.
Year 5’s attendance this week is 97% – well done everyone, we hit the target of over 96%
Five children were late for school this week – missing a total of 45 minutes of learning time.
Next week – our last week in year 5 – we will still be swimming on Wednesday afternoon, so all the children will need to bring their swimming kit with them on Wednesday morning.
We look forward to seeing you all at the school carnival on Tuesday afternoon, where we will be selling our recycled paper notebooks.
On Friday, children are allowed to wear non uniform and can be collected from the hall fire exit doors from 1pm onwards.
See you next week for our last Year 5 update of this year!

This week most of the class have taken part in the Bikeability program. They worked hard to understand how to enjoy riding their bikes while staying safe. Special mention must be to Group A, who were out on Tuesday in the rain – not one complaint was heard as they came dripping back into school! All the children that took part passed the course and will receive their certificates soon.
We’ve been working on our class flag for the school Carnival which will be here soon – we look forward to sharing it with you on the big day.
Elisha received the class certificate this week for her outstanding work in her project book.
Matthew was added to the Golden Book for continuing to be an excellent role model with his attitude to learning and his behaviour, and Charley was added to the Golden Book for a fantastic independent piece of writing which she added to her project.
Ella has been named ‘Hand Writer’ of the week – for her much improved, joined handwriting.
Year 5’s attendance this week is 91.7% – we’re a long way off the target of 96% this week. Let’s see if we can have everyone in for the last two weeks of Year 5.
Four children were late for school this week – missing a total of 144 minutes of learning time.
Next week we will be back to swimming on Wednesday afternoon, so all the children will need to bring their swimming kit with them on Wednesday morning.
We’re looking forward to seeing parents and family members at the story afternoon on Thursday – don’t forget to bring your favourite books!
See you next week for our next Year 5 update.

Year 5 have had a fun filled week!
All the children enjoyed the movie afternoon – especially the hot dogs!
On Thursday and Friday of this week all the children in the class took part in a special science, engineering and health event at Barnes Park. They were all eager to take part in Spanish lessons, first aid, gardening, trampolining, street dancing and lots of other exciting activities. Of course, all the children made the most of the free fun fair! Millie was our star of the day on Friday when she overcame her trampoline fears and became a bouncing star!
Jasmine received the class certificate this week for her outstanding attitude to school.
Millie was added to the Golden Book for her trampoline triumph and Shannon was added to the Golden Book for eagerly taking part in all the activities at Barnes Park.
Bobby has been named ‘Hand Writer’ of the week – for his much improved handwriting.
Year 5’s attendance this week is 93.8% – an improvement on last week, but we’re still below the target of 96%.
Six children were late for school this week – missing a total of 77 minutes of learning time.
Next week we are looking forward to the Bikeability Programme in school. All the children taking part need to remember their bikes and helmets on Monday morning. As the children will be out on their bikes throughout the week Year 5 will not be going swimming on Wednesday afternoon.
See you next week for our next Year 5 update.

This week Year 5 have been very busy with a number of new sporting events:
They are taking part in a Literacy through sports pilot twice a week and had a very successful afternoon at the Farringdon cricket competition. All the children are making excellent progress in swimming and are looking forward to their end of year ‘fun afternoon’.
Thank you to all the parents who attended our Family Learning morning on Thursday – it’s always a pleasure to share what we’ve been doing in school.
Shaun received the achievement certificate for his much improved behaviour.
Shay and Abigaile were added to the Golden Book this week for their outstanding attitudes to learning and school in general.
Jack has been named ‘Hand Writer’ of the week.
Year 5’s attendance this week is 92.4% – we’re below the target of 96% so a huge effort is needed next week.
Only two children were late for school this week – keep up the hard work!
