Diary Dates



The Year Five children are already getting ready to be in Year Six by taking on whole school responsibilities, they have already shown us how trustworthy they are. As a year group we  will be working  as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Trust". Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to be a compassionate in class, on the playground and at home. If your child impresses you with how  trustworthy they are at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.

Latest News

Our PE days are MONDAY and THURSDAY. Please ensure you have you  PE kit in school.

Please ensure PE kit is in school every day as PE days are subject to change. We will phone home asking for PE kits to be brought into school if a child does not have it for a PE lesson.



Text: Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Focus: Infering 

WB:  11/09/17

This week children will demonstrate their skills when infering information from a text. We will focus on the above story as it links nicely to our topic, Alchemy Island.


Homework books need to be handed in every Wednesday and will be returned to children on Thursday. 

Children will have a homework bingo for the half term, weekly spellings with an activity in their boomerang books and an X Factor example to practice at home.

We have now set an activity on MyMaths




This term in Year Five



English: This half term, children will learn what makes a narrative a fantasy narrative. Exploring the worlds of Harry Potter, Narnia and many more, children will equip themselves with the skills to write their very own Fantasy Narrative.  

Maths: In Maths, year Five will develop their skills and understanding about place value and addition, including negative numbers. Practicing times tables and division tables will help with the mental calculations required to be successful in maths. Keep practicing in order to move through the Sherrier X Factor!

Connected Curriculum: Children will meet the Chief Alchemist's Apprentice of Alchemy Island and begin their journey from the Ancient Citadel. Learning about  gold, gems and the ancient art of Alchemy, children will be tasked with missions and will need to prove their worth to the Alchemists. Children will enjoy learning skills in Music, Science and Geography during this exciting topic.
