Y5: Mr Wood

Year 5 really enjoyed the interactive parts of the virtual Christmas pantomime.


The snack bags provided by the PTA definitely helped! Many thanks from Year 5.



Christmas calendars


We took a break from the Y5 production, to start creating our calendars in the style of Matisse.


We hope you will enjoy the design all year.



Some examples of the finished products will follow.

Mental Health ChampionsOn the 23rd November, Year 5 completed a morning of on-line training to allow them to help themselves and others in the area of Mental Health and Wellbeing. This is Poppy's reflection of the session.


We learned a lot about Mental Health and why it is important, as your mental health can change - you might feel very sad and then feel very happy.

Apparently 9-10 year olds are supposed to have 9-11 hours sleep. 

People can help you to improve your mental health. We completed some booklets and activities. We worked in pairs, trying out different methods that would support positive mental health.


Poppy, Blythe and Tom are going to be the Mental Health Champions for the class. Congratulations to them.

In future weeks, the Year 5s will have further opportunities to improve strategies and discover other ways to boost their mental wellbeing.

COMING SOON - Video auditions for the Three Witches in Macbeth
