Though there are a lot more maths resources that we could post on here, these are the ones that are relevant for the learning that the children are doing at the moment. If you would like any other support, please always come and ask us and, of course, we can always add more resources on here.  Home learning support can also be found at homework club, which is on at 8-8.45am for the children.

Thank you for your continued support.

Year 5

What a treat!


Year 5 have worked incredibly hard today planning, designing, making and, of course, tasting their pizzas. They have shown amazing perseverance and collaboration and, as a result, have produced delicious Christmas party treats.


The guinea pigs have arrived!


Welcome to Cookie and Caramel who have arrived this week to year 5 Dolphins class.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas


We’ve been feeling Christmassy in year 5. Our Christmas tree is up and ready for baubles on Monday.



Get into the festive spirit by donating to our year 5 Mexican hamper (see flyer below). All of the hampers will be part of the raffle at the Christmas fair (Wednesday 19th December). Raffle tickets can be bought before school at £1 a ticket or £3 a strip.

Prime numbers and peculiar popcorn


This week in year 5 we’ve been investigating prime numbers. We used counters and multi link cubes to see which numbers had more than 2 factors in them.



We have also been investigating reversible and irreversible changes. We tried microwaving popcorn, burning paper, mixing vinegar with bicarbonate of soda and melting ice all to see whether the changes were reversible or irreversible.
