We’re daring and determined, quick and strong.
We face every challenge head-on!

Welcome back! We hope that you have all had a lovely summer holiday.
We have had a very busy first week in Tigers. As well as getting to know each other better, we have made book covers, completed class elections and a piece of writing all about our summer and much more. It has been a fantastic start to the year!
We have PE on Thursday and Friday so please wear your full PE kit to school on those days.
Please remember to record reading and sign homework diaries. Thank you for your cooperation.
Macmillan Open Hour
A huge thank you to all the parents and carers who visited our class during the open hour. We hope you enjoyed the UCI cake designs and budgeting skills. The children certainly did!
Pupil Voice Groups
We have had a very busy week this week electing our Pupil Voice groups for Tigers. Well done to all of the children, who gave a speech - they were very impressive. The elected Pupil Voice groups are now very excited about their new roles and responsibilities this year!

We are looking forward to our Science Week w/b 7th October. If you are able to visit school to share your knowledge of Science, we would be very grateful.
Year 5 Science Week
We have had a fantastic week learning all about science. All of the children have enjoyed planning and carrying out their experiments based around the theme of 'Journeys', linked to our Science Superheroes:
Comparative and fair testing (SuperGirl) - Making Cornflour Slime.
Observing over time (Spy Magnus) - Melting Chocolate Buttons.
Pattern seeking (Captain Peeko) - Diet Coke/Mentos Volcanic Eruptions.
Identifying, classifying and grouping (Commander Classify) - Forensic Science with Mrs Moore.
Researching using secondary sources (Billy Bookhead) - Eurotunnel Board Games.
Our first class book of the year is 'Oranges in No Man's Land' by Elizabeth Laird.
Here is the blurb...
"This was my chance. I slipped under the chain and bolted down the deserted street, running into no man's land as fast as my flip-flops would let me...."
Ayesha lives in a battle-scarred building with her Granny. Outside, a war is ripping the city apart - but Ayesha doesn't even know why the two sides are fighting.
Life gets even scarier when Granny's medicine runs out. So Ayesha takes matters into her own hands - and in her search for a doctor makes the forbidden journey across no man's land....
