 Welcome to class 5R!

Here in Class 5R, we are great learners- confident, hardworking, resilient, enthusiastic and work as a team.

In our class, there are 20 members of our team- 11 girls and 9 boys!

Our class teacher is Miss Robyn and our teaching assistant is Miss Ruth. We are also taught by Miss Mitchell on a Monday afternoon and Sharon on a Thursday afternoon.

Every day we do Maths and English, we are working hard to improve our Maths and English skills!


We have two pieces of homework every week- our spellings and either a Maths skills sheet. They are due in every Wednesday, when we have our spelling check.


In class 5R we believe in following the five fundamentals to create the best environment for our learning. We believe in having a positive attitude and thinking with a growth mindset.

A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to bring in their beloved pets and share them with us as part of our topic this half term! We have loved learning all about your furry friends!

This week we have been super busy from taking a visit to the library, creating some fantastic art work and having fun learning how to multiply fractions!

In 5R we had some lovely Year 4's join us and they showed us their favourite thing to do - Just Dance! All our class had the best time!

In Class 5 as part of our Animals and Habitats topic, we have been building our own garden to help create a sustainable habitat for the wildlife in our school. We are so impressed with how our plants are growing!!

We were so excited by the snow that for our English lesson we wrote different types of sentences - all about the snow! 


We went outside to see what the snow looked and felt like to think of some super adjectives for us to use in our writing. Here are our favourites - 


The snow was white. - Zack's simple sentence 


The snow was as fluffy as a polar bear. - Megan's simile 


The snow was as crunchy as a dead leaf. - Abbie R's simile 


The soft, glittering and wet snow. - Abi N's list of adjectives 


The snow is as magical as Christmas morning. - Beau's simile 


The magical, white and crunchy snow. - Ruby B's list of adjectives 


Although it was cold, Abi went outside. - Phoebe's sentence with a main and subordinate clause. 


 The snow, which was settling, rushed down from the sky. - Gracie's relative clause. 


The snow, which was cold, fell from the cloudy sky stopped Layla from going outside. - Katie's relative clause. 


This week in Class 5R we saw if we had what it took to be an astronaut with some space training! We learnt all about space suits, our core strength, reaction time and sampled some space food! All that astronaut training left us exhausted!

OUR TRIP TO THE SPACE CENTRE! We had the best time learning about space at The National Space Centre - we loved exploring and learning all about our planet... and beyond!
