Odd Socks Day 2019

Odd Socks Day 2019 1

During anti-bullying week, the Leopards class took part in 'Odd-socks day'. It was a way of opening discussion with pupils about their own uniqueness and appreciating and accepting one another. The children worked really hard, discussed topics maturely and sensitively and had fun too.

Information for Parents

I would just like to take this opportunity to say welcome to the Leopards class page. Please keep popping back to see us here as we will upload photographs of our learning as well as important weekly information such as spellings and times tables.

PE Lessons:

are Wednesday and Friday, please remember to have your kit in school at all times & that school policy states that all jewellery should be removed, this includes earrings, plasters are not allowed. Due to marks being left on the hall floor we are also asking that children wear pumps inside now. They are most welcome to bring trainers for outdoor activities so if they can have both in the PE kit that would be fantastic. Thank you.


Water Bottles:

should be brought to school and taken home daily for cleaning and refilling, it is scientifically proven that children and adults function better when hydrated, enabling great learning. many children are asking for a drink during the day and we have limited plastic cups, so for hygiene reasons please do send your child with a water bottle, even when it's cold outside.



Pupils will receive spelling, multiplication and reading homework weekly. This will be given out on a Friday. Children are expected to practice at home, return the homework sheet and have their reading diary signed at least four times a week. These basic skills are imperative to your child's education and practicing at home regularly makes a huge difference.


Thank you for your support smiley

This term's class novel is:

This term's class novel is: 1
The novel Wonder links to our first PSHE topic of 'Being Different'. During this we explore what it is about ourselves that makes us the same to other people and different to other people. We discuss stereotyping and diversity. In the second half-term we move on to 'Anti-Bullying'. This novel gives the children inside experience of a character who deals with being very different and the positive and negative affect on him of other characters. The children can discuss why people behave the way they do, rightly or wrongly. It also allows the children to see the same story from various different character viewpoints, which is so important when dealing with difficult situations at school, to be able to understand the opinion of others. 

We would like to wish the following pupils a 'Happy Birthday' for this term!

Year 5 Curriculum Guide for parents and pupils.

For National Poetry day the Leopards class looked at the poem Word Of A Lie by Jackie Lay and then wrote their own version!

In our materials topic in science, we started by observing what happens to skittles in water!

We followed this by designing and completing our own investigation into the rate of dissolving and the factors affecting it.

In design technology with Mr Evans, the pupils are completing a food unit of work on biscuits. They have analysed and tested biscuits already in the shops, then they moved onto adding texture and design to plain biscuits. By Christmas we hope they will have designed and made their own brand of biscuit.
