Greek Day

We had a fantastic Greek Day today, learning about Ancient Greek warfare, clothing, slaves, food and games, as well as studying different Greek artefacts.


We had a brilliant 3 days in Langdale. We did so many activities and everyone had so much fun. We did a 3 mile hike to the local cave, archery, den building, fire making, team challenges and rocket launch.

Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day

Choral Poetry Performances

Year 5 have been studying different types of poems. We performed ‘Vegan Delights’ and ‘An Everything Pizza’ as a class to a beat. Well done Year 5, you were brilliant!

Northern Ballet

Year 5 really enjoyed their workshop this morning with Northern Ballet. They had a lot of fun!

Serena Hall

Children studied the artist Serena Hall and her work. They painted a picture in the style of Serena Hall. Every child’s painting is amazing! They should be very proud of themselves.


Everyone chose a pebble from Filey Beach. We looked at the shape of our pebble to decide how we would design it.

See below for flags, pizza, ice cream, flowers, dogs and other animals!


Year 5 had a fantastic day in Filey. They explored in rockpools and built amazing sand sculptures.

Fun was definitely had by all!



We really enjoyed our skipping workshop last week. It was such fun!


During English we have been reading 'A Boy and a Bear in a Boat' by Dave Shelton, which we are really enjoying. We have just found out that an unusual visitor left a comic on the boat which is written in another language. We had to try and work out what the comic (Komic) said. When we realised it was only the middle section, we invented our own beginning and ending.


In Maths we have been learning about Roman Numerals. We used coloured pencils to show some different numerals for our partner to guess. 

Moral Message

For the Moral Message 'I keep going when things are difficult', we had a complicated Greek pot jigsaw to cut out and assemble. Although it was quite tricky, we all kept going and persevering and co-operated well with others to offer help and support.

Welcome back to school - I hope you all had a brilliant summer and are ready for the exciting challenges of Year 5!
