Welcome to the Outstanding Otters Class page!

Come here to find out useful information and to hear about all the exciting things we have been doing in Year 5! 


Sentence Stacking

We have finished our first sentence stacking story about 'The Nowhere Emporium' - it's taken up a whole wall in our classroom! Next week we are going to plan and write our own prologue based on it. Watch this space for more fantastic work!

Earth & Space

This terms Y5 Science project is Earth and Space and we have already begun learning lots of new things about the Solar System. We had fun creating a scaled solar system model in the playground using toilet paper and spherical representations. We decided that each sheet of toilet roll would represent 20 million km and couldn't believe how far away each of the planets are from the Sun, especially Neptune which is approximately 4,500,000,000km (225 sheets of toilet roll!).

The Nowhere Emporium Arrives at Year 5!

Year 5 were surprised to find a mysterious looking doorway that featured in 'The Nowhere Emporium' at the end of the Year 6 corridor last week and nervously gathered around to discuss our thoughts, feelings, actions and questions about the doorway. We have now begun writing a prologue for our own adventure story, so watch this space for some fantastic work...

Anglo-Saxon Shields

As part of our Anglo-Saxon Topic work, Year 5's have researched, designed and created their own Anglo-Saxon shields using felt. The children pinned and cut out their template designs onto their felt pieces and developed their stitching techniques to join the felt together. We even evaluated each others work against our designs and gave feedback to each other so we could improve our work. We are very proud of the outcomes...
