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 WEDNESDAYS. 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.

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, Time traveller


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

Star Gazers

English: This half term, year five will be looking into newspaper reports and recounts. They will need to do background research to find out lots of information as well as taking the information on board learnt during our visit to the space centre. This will help them with the information needed to write these articles. 

Maths: In Maths, year Five will develop their skills and understanding about fractions. We will be spending a number of weeks exploring how we can master this area of Maths. We will look into a number of ways to express the numbers, including improper fractions, normal fractions and mixed fractions.

Connected Curriculum: This half term children will be delving into space and become astronauts by learning as much as possible about outer space. We will be looking at all the planets in solar system as well as the moon and the sun. As well as this, the children will learn about gravity and the weight (or lack there of) around outer space and Earth. We may have the next Neil Armstrong on our hands come the end of this topic.

In the summer term (3.1) we have our year five school trip. We will be visiting the SPACE CENTRE in Leicester. Letters have been sent home with the children and if you would like your child to come the price has been attached, along with a form to return. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to further their knowledge in our Stargazers topic!

Thursday the 19th of April is our school trip to the Space Centre. The children have been working really hard on this topic and this will be a nice way for them to finish this before moving on to the next one. The Space Centre is full of lots of amazing information which will delve further into the knowledge about space.
