Class 11 (Year 5)

Today was Reflection day. In Cass 11, we looked back (a year to the day of the first national lockdown) on a difficult year and remembered all of those people who had been lost. During prayer and worship we wrote prayers which we hung in our reflection garden. We also looked back on all of the things we enjoyed before and during lockdown: we celebrated the positives as well as the things we were looking forward to doing after the restrictions are lifted.


Christmas Fundraiser




Monday 30th November 2020

Dear Parent/Carer,

As part of our Advent preparations, and to keep the true meaning of Christmas alive in our hearts and minds, Class 11 would like to raise some money for a local homeless charity during this half term. After discussions with the children, we have decided to create a Christmas scene in a jar. All you and your child(ren) have to do is collect a jar – and either collect/decorate the jar with objects to show a Christmas scene.  They can bring them in at any point the week beginning Monday 14th Dec.

This will take place on Friday 18th December 2020 –it will be £1.00 to enter, with a prize for the most creative scene! All of the money raised, will then be donated.


Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Parsonage

Welcome to Year 5!


A big welcome to all of Class 11 and their families to what we hope will be an exciting and enjoyable year of learning. We hope to keep everyone updated through this page so please check in regularly to see photographs and read reports about what Class 11 have been up to.


Please check out our Autumn 1 Newsletter to read about our exciting first half term together.


Class 11's PE days are on Mondays and Fridays. Please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days.


We look forward to working with you all this year,


Mr Parsonage (Class teacher) and Mrs Tilley (Class Teaching Assistant)

Our quality text to focus on this half term will be "The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess,." by Julia Jarman. 

Linked to this; for our topic we have started investigating the Ancient Egyptians. We will be looking back at the way that they lived, their royal pharaohs, great pyramids and scenic landscape.
