Year 5 had a wonderful time at Blists Hill! Thankfully, the weather was on our side!
We began our day with a visit to the Victorian School Room. We dressed in traditional Victorian costumes and experienced lessons in true Victorian style! The teacher inspected our nails, how clean our hands were and our shoes. We were not allowed to speak unless spoken to and had to write on a slate!
The children were such amazing ambassadors for our school and played their role beautifully!
After lunch in the Boys Brigade Hut, we explored the Victorian town. Our money had been changed into pounds, shillings and pence so we were able to spend as a true Victorian would have.
Sadly, after visits to the Druggist, Sweet Shop and Post Office our visit came to an end. A truly amazing day and definitely worth another visit.

It is so important you know your times tables at speed and out of order. Don't forget the division facts too! Click on the picture to challenge yourself.
This term, we will be learning all about place value; and how to reason and solve problems.
Our focus for the next few weeks will be using cohesive devices and relative clauses.
Huge Well done to Harry Gill for his design of our new sticker!
We've been learning about 'growth mindset' and how to be resilient in our learning.
The sticker will be given to children who show an ability to manage distractions, persevere when learning is tough and become absorbed in tasks.
Learning your Times Tables is so important to become a good mathematician.
Check out what we got up to for the launch of Times Tables Rockstars! Rock on!
Don’t forget to read at home. It is better to read little amounts but often rather than all at once. You should be able to answer questions about the text that you are reading also. Please get an adult to sign to say you have read and bring it in at least once a week.

Over the Spring Term our topic will be The Vikings.
This will include:
- Viking raids and invasion
- resistance by Alfred the Great and Athelstan, first king of England
- further Viking invasions and Danegeld
- Anglo-Saxon laws and justice
- Edward the Confessor and his death in 1066
Our study will be based around the book Viking Boy by Tony Bradman.
