Year 5

Teacher: Claire Fraser


Paignton Zoo

The children had a fantastic day at the zoo. The sun shone, it was great to see the children enjoying a bit of normality!

Sports Day 2021

Sports day was a little different this year! The children had a fantastic afternoon but we missed the spectators. Fingers crossed we’ll be back to normal service next year.

Easter Egg Drop!

We had an Easter egg drop competition. We designed our ‘capsules’ to carry our eggs safely to the floor. We worked as a team and had a great afternoon building and testing our designs.

Christmas Production

Today we filmed our Christmas extravaganza at St Andrew’s church. All will be revealed later next week! A big thank you to Mrs Earley and Harriet Davies of ‘Show up now,’ a local drama charity.

Science – Air resistance

Today we conducted an investigation into how surface area affects the rate of descent of a parachute.


After studying the amazing ‘Dragonology’ book, the children have spent several weeks designing, writing and editing ‘Ologies’ of a mythical creature of their choice. After many hours of hard work, their work is finally complete. The work is of an exceptional standard and the children are very proud of their work.


Year 5 (mostly!) enjoyed cross country on a wet, cold and windy day!



We have been investigating ‘square numbers.’

PE – Quad Kids

The children had a fantastic day taking part in a school Quad kids competition. The classes competed in their seperate bubbles during the day and then the scores were accumulated. A brilliant event which all children enjoyed


The children have been learning about ‘tone’ during art lessons.


The children have been learning about the solar system. They have learnt how the Earth and moon orbit around the sun and they have learnt the names of the planets in the solar system and the order they are in distance from the sun.

Fran has completed a very difficult looking solar system jigsaw – great effort Fran

Welcome back!

The children are adapting very well to the ‘new way’ of doing things at school. They have made a great start to the year and have been enjoying our maths study of place value and reading our class book.
