Playground rules poster competition

In 5M and throughout the school we have been thinking about our playtime rules and how we can keep them safe, happy and fun. Mr Moore had the hard task of selecting two winning poster designs, which will be displayed in classrooms and around the school. Elodie Parker and Grace Brierley were the winning entries for 5M. Miss Weir presented certificates to the winners in celebration assembly and was most impressed by the creative high winning entry standards.

Christmas Displays

In 5M, the tigers have been researching Advent and creating their own Advent calendar. We created our own advent calendar section, making levers with a fixed and loose pivot, producing a moving decoration. We also explored the meaning of Advent and our hopes for the future.


British Values and SMSC:


Spiritual - we spent time reflecting on our own and others experiences at Christmas. Behind each door you will find the children's hopes for future Christmases, based on these reflections.


Cultural - we researched the history of the modern Advent calendar, discovering its European roots went back to the mid-19th Century.

Anti Bullying Week

This year, the theme for Anti-Bullying week is ‘All Different, All Equal’. We also explored the different kinds of bullying, the emotional and physical symptoms of bullying and what to do if your or someone you know is being bullies. Below is an example of the work we did in class by Rebecca Manyonganise.

Children In Need

The children of 5M have made a fantastic effort for Children In Need this year, wearing spotty clothing and raising money at the same time! We also collected the old round pounds.
