Birds of the Morning Class

Our Year 5 children are taught in Birds of the Morning Class. The class teachers are Mrs Baggaley and Mrs Amey. The class teaching assistant is Mrs Thomas. 

Birds of the Morning are large white birds that fly from the sun and present fire-berries to a retired Star named Ramandu.  You can read about Birds of the Morning in the book, 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'.

What the children say:

What we do in class:



The class will continue work on methods of calculation and using and applying this knowledge to real life problems. As well as this, we will be doing work on shape and space, using measures, decimals and fractions. We will continue the focus on improving mental calculations and this happens every day within the maths lessons.

The school website  has links to maths  websites such as Mathletics which can be used to support your child’s learning. Weekly tasks will be set for homework on this site.


The Year 5 literacy scheme this term will focus on word, sentence and text level work. Our focus for most of the term will be writing  pieces from a  wide range of genres that will link with our topic. I am particularly keen to   highlight our on-going use of the VCOP      principles—Vocabulary, Conjunctions,      Openers and Punctuation - to help improve the children’s work and encourage them to develop their personal writing style.       


Our topic work will see us delving into the archives and looking at life in Britain over the last 100 years.

We will be looking at how our local area has changed in that time and explore the significant events that shaped our society.

It is a chance for us to look at the fashions, music and lifestyles of people in Britain through different decades.
