Local History – The New River


Year 5 got to explore first hand the local history of Hertfordshire with a walk along the New River. Students made their way along the river to St Augustine’s and back.

During that time, they connected this history of the river to features around it – freshwater being a key reason for it’s construction.

Some students were even lucky enough to have a visit from Rev Grant!

Toga Day! 28th September


Week 5 (beginning 28/9) starts our new History Unit: Ancient Greece.

To get Year 5 excited, we’re organising a whole day of Greek themed activities: from mask making to Greek food to a Wormley Greek Olympic Games!

All students are asked to come to school in a homemade toga and sports shoes/trainers. A plain bedsheet is the easiest way to achieve this. If you’re not sure how to make one, simply bring the sheet into school and we can help them fashion one. School uniform should be worn underneath.

If your child has any food allergies, please ensure the office knows before Friday 25th.

Kind regards


Year 5 Team

Local History Walk


History is important. It helps understand our place in the world. Local history helps us connect the bigger picture with our small place in it.

This coming Thursday 28th September, Year 5 will explore some of this local history first hand with a walking trip to the New River. The New River has an interesting story and students will both learn about it’s construction, purpose, as well as employ some geographical and investigational skills.
Students must wear school uniforms but are permitted to wear walking shoes or trainers for the day.
Kind regards,
The Year 5 Team.

Welcome Back Year 5 2020!


Firstly, a big welcome back to everyone, and especially Year 5.


All of Year 5 who have settled into their new classes well and both myself and Mrs Plester have been delighted to see everyone’s smiling faces. We are both incredibly impressed at the resilience of the students and their eagerness to get back into the learning (and see their friends of course!).


If you need to get in touch with one of us, please contact the office. For school work questions, you can also email


A couple of housekeeping things to remember in the coming weeks (as we establish new routines):


Reading Records

Students should be reading every day and recording the date, page numbers and a comment in their reading recording. These need to be returned everyday (initially) and signed once a week by an adult. Good reading habits start from day one!


Google Classroom

All students should be logging into Google Classroom. See your teacher for password resets.


Home Learning (Due on Thursday of every week)

Home learning is online, through google classroom. This weeks activity is maths and an easy task to practice taking a photo and uploading it to the assignment. You can do this on any Smart phone through the Google Classroom app. See the video for help.



Spelling quiz in via Google Classroom. Please complete the quiz by Thursday.


TT Rockstars

Everyone needs practice at this. Even if you know then, try the Studio or Soundcheck activity to test your speed – this can help with future topics.


Water Bottles

It will be hot in the coming days. Please send in a water bottle for students and remind them to bring it home at the end of the day.


We’re absolutely thrilled to have each and everyone of you – we’re looking forward to an exciting year and building a growth mindset.


Remember – nothing is impossible!


Kind regards,


Team Year 5.
