Wow! What an amazing class assembly? Year 5 really did Cedar Park, and themselves, proud today. All the children performed their parts brilliantly. Our assembly was a review of our summer term learning and activities. The children wrote and performed the story of our solar system, as well as a short history of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Their rap battle was incredible. Thank you to all the parents who were able to make it, and we hope you enjoyed the quick glimpse at the Green Park photos. (These, and more, are available using the links below.)

We have had a visit from Buckinghamshire Fire Service who showed us around their fire appliance (fire engine) and told us about fire safety.
We have been learning this poem to help us understand how the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons behaved.
Across the school, we have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to see a child sized replica of an astronaut's spacesuit. Some of us even got the chance to wear it too. In Year 5 we've asked 'the astronauts' questions about their time in space. Also, we watched a video and learnt lots of new facts about the suit itself.
We are now preparing to create some exciting writing about space. To help us, in Year 5 we experienced the 9 minutes it takes to blast off from the launch pad to the point at which the astronauts first experience weightlessness in space.
Welcome to the Year 5 page!
A few reminders for Summer 2 half term:
This half term, PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and swimming on a Thursday, please make sure children have the appropriate PE uniform (trainers, plain tracksuit bottoms, plain black shorts, school coloured PE top and a plain tracksuit jumper in case of a cold day). We will endeavour to be outside as much as we can during this half term!
Reading Records and Homework Diaries will be checked for parental signatures and 4 records in the Reading Record on a Monday. These records can be put in by the children themselves as they read independently, but must be verified by a parental signature.
Library visit will be on a Tuesday.
New spellings will be given out every Thursday and will be tested the following Thursday.
This half term, there will be a choice of 4 different projects across the 6 weeks. The children will choose 3 pieces, from the 4, and hand 1 piece in every 2 weeks- more details to follow.
Please scroll down to the bottom of the page and under the 'English' folder you can see our fantastic broomstick advertisements (inspired by our Harry Potter project).
We have been using our new laptops in our learning, not only for researching and typing practice but also using the internet as a resource for learning. A good way to practice your times tables is with this website: www.quizlet.com/MrSpurway
You can choose a times table focus and then a game. The galaxy game is a particular favourite amongst the class!
There are a lot more choice of websites available on the internet too e.g. BBC bitesize and Topmarks
Practice makes perfect!
See the top of the page for a link to some WOW writing of the term!
