Greek Masks

The children were tasked with designing and making a paper mache mask of a character from their Greek myth. The children not only enjoyed making a mess they also enjoyed making the masks!

Research homework on Greek Gods and Goddesses

Year 5 never fail to impress me with their research homework and presentations.  Each child researched interesting facts about an Ancient Greek God or Goddess and presented their information to the rest of the class.  They all did so well - we really enjoyed learning from each other!

Greek Myths
In English, we planned and wrote our own Greek myth.  Please read some of our examples.

Henry Moore

We have been learning about Henry Moore and his Underground Art Work during the Second World War. We were inspired to re-create our own artwork in the style of Henry Moore.



We have been learning about factors, multiples and prime numbers. We have drawn many factor bugs to help us investigate numbers. We continue to play games to help us improve our times table knowledge.

The children all looked great in their costumes for Comic Relief and remained focused when completing our Big Maths challenges – even if they were sitting next to Harry Potter!


WWII Topic work

The class have been learning about the D-Day landings and worked collaboratively to create information posters to help other children learn about the historical significance of the D-Day landings. The children should be proud of their finished posters.

We had a fascinating day learning about members of our families who were involved in World War Two. The children presented really well and were all very keen to share their family’s history.



As part of our English topic Friend or Foe we have been learning how to debate. The children really enjoyed discussing questions from the book Friend or Foe.  For example -should David and Tucky help the injured pilots who saved David’s life or should we hand them over to the military police?  The classroom was full of thoughtful discussion-which was fantastic!

When reading Friend or Foe the class really enjoyed role-play as it helped them understand the characters thoughts, feelings and actions even more. (Some of the children were very convincing members of the army who interrogated David and Tucky!)

We have been busy writing newspaper articles on David and Tucky’s discovery of two German pilots on Dartmoor. The children enjoyed the challenge of writing their lead paragraph in less than 40 words.

We all found it challenging but have persevered.
