Outdoor Learning Activities

Please find attached a grid containing some outdoor learning activities that your child can do at home.  There are activities for children in early years, ages 5 to 9 and 9 to 12.  You and your child can of course choose an activity from any section. I will add a new grid each week.  Any photos or work can be uploaded on to seesaw and sent to your class teacher.  I hope that you enjoy these activities and look forward to hearing all about them.  

Take care

Year 5 Home Learning W/B 5th January 2021

Happy New Year! It is such a shame that we can't welcome you back to school after the Christmas holidays but I hope that you’re all keeping well and will engage in the work that I’m preparing. It’s really important that all the fantastic learning that you did in the Autumn Term isn’t lost.

 Please place any work on Seesaw and I look forward to seeing you all on zoom. Please be aware that these sessions may be subject to change if I'm in school with key worker children.

Y5 Christmas celebrations

Year 5 have had an amazing day. Frst they filmed their poem, - don't forget to check it out on Seesaw. Then they completed the Santa Dash, had their face painted, decorated gingerbread men and completed a lucky dip and tombola. Hope you have a fantastic time celebrating Christmas at home.

We are using a new scheme in school called 'Letterjoin'. All of these children have impressed their teachers! Their magnificent work has been displayed on our writing display near Mrs Parker's office.


Look at Year 5's exceptional paintings of Hokusai's wave that is represented in recreating the front cover of Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. The children created these collages by mixing paint and creating a sunset that was then embellished with Hokusai's wave. The Peggy Sue was then strategically placed upon the wave. Excellent work Year 5!

Outdoor Shelters

Year 5 had an excellent afternoon on Friday making shelters linked to our story Kensuke's Kingdom. The children used their ingenuity and creativity to turn bin bags, string and foraged materials into a shelter. What a fantatsic outdoor learning session we had. Well done Year 5!
