‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week Three


Our budding bakers are back and this week they made their bread designs come to life. Most of the children wanted to created bread designs to celebrate our new monarch - King Charles III. They had so much fun even though brown bread was not to everyone's taste. One group#s design was linked to cats for a birthday party.


Have a good weekend!

Week Two

This week the children have began their street dance lessons which take place on a Monday so please remember to wear PE kit on these days. PE kit is a plain white t-shirt or a white t-shirt with the WDPS logo on and back shorts, leggings or joggers.


In Design Technology, the children have been keeping a daily dairy, recording bread products they consume each day and they have even had a go at making a basic bread recipe. Bake Off comes to Year 5.


Your child has now completed their Reading Plus assessment and it would be useful if they could read one book a week at home. The target is to complete 5 texts per week. Last year we saw outstanding progress form the previous year 5 class by reading every day To access the site search for Reading Plus - student login, site code is rpwestd3, their user name and the password  is qwerty. Please get in touch if you have any queries.


Kind regards

English - Finding evidence to support or refute statements within the text

Week One


What a great start to Year Five and we have certainly packed it in this week.


We set our class rule - 'Respect everyone and everything so we can stay safe and learn'. During English, we have started our class text - Skellig by David Almond and we are certainly hooked. Bread is our first topic for Design Technology and the children thoroughly enjoyed tasting lots of different breads for a variety of cultures.


On Friday, the children paid their respects to the Queen when we discussed which WDPS Core Values she embodied as well as writing messages to her and her family.
