Y5 Sports Journalism

A few children have expressed an interest in Y5 regarding being interested in Sports Journalism. I have managed to set up a question and answer interview session with my friend Dan O’Hagan, the Sky Sports Bundesliga and Football League commentator. If you are interested in how to get into Sports Journalism (commentating, analysing, writing about, blogging) and have any questions, please have them ready for this coming Tuesday (6th) when we will be recording the interview session.

This is a wonderful opportunity if you are interested in a career in Sports Journalism.

Any questions, please email me at

YR 5 Autumn Term Homework

Please find the Autumn Term homework for the Year 5 children in the links below.

We have provided the children with some Maths which follows the work the children are completing in class, the Spelling words which are key Year 5 words – with some ideas for how to learn them, Reading expectations and Egyptian related homework – this to last until Christmas. New spellings will be assigned after October half term.

Please support your child where necessary and please contact us directly if you need anything more.

We are impressed with how all the children have settled into Year 5 and are quickly picking up the new rules and routines and we hope you have all noticed this too?

Kindest regards

Team Year 5 (Mr M, Miss H and Mr Marsh)

Year 5 Topic Work Resources


As part of our topic “Enough for Everyone” we will be investigating Hydro Power. On Friday 14th May, the children will be making their own Hydro Power machine as part of renewable sources of energy.

To complete this each child will need to bring these items into school from home:

  • A clean milk or juice bottle
  • A piece of stiff cardboard
  • A cotton reel
  • 8 plastic teaspoons.

We have a number of other items needed which school will provide.

Please could every child have these items in school on Friday 14th May – this will enable every child to bring a Hydro Power machine home.

Thank you for your support
