Bumble Bees - Yr 5


Welcome to your brand new year 5 class this year Bumble Bees! I Hope you all had a fantastic summer and are back buzzing with energy and enthusiasm!

We are the Bumble Bee class taught by Miss Tagliati. There are only 18 busy bees in our class this year!

My door is always open and I am more than happy to meet with you to discuss any concerns you may have. Please feel free to pop in and introduce yourselves or come for a chat at the end of the day.

Dragons Den

We were all in the hall together this week ,whilst Year 6 took their SATs tests.

We worked in teams to design a new product. We had to think of a company name and logo, produce a labelled diagram and then produce a costing sheet, including details of training, materials, packaging and advertising.

Today was exciting because we had to present our business ideas in a persuasive way.

We had a smart fridge, a make up station, an indoor playground, a wi fi block, an i pad book, a vibrating chair/ flying car, mood changing contact lenses, travel pack , an animal back pack, a video game and a handbag charger.

The children asked some really thoughtful and interesting questions about the products. Luke, in particular, was very concerned with some of the health and safety implications!! Ethan was an extremely confident and persuasive salesman, with an answer for everything!

I think we definitely have some budding entrepreneurs! Well done to everyone for all your hard work. 

Inspiring engineers of the future!

We had a really interesting talk from the Highways Agency about how to keep safe on a construction site. We learnt about the different jobs that the Highways Agency involves and the different routes that can be taken to train for them. We liked the sound of apprenticeships where you can train on the job and get paid at the same time!

Year 5 caught reading in weird and wonderful places!

Young Voices 2019

On Tuesday, some of our Year 5 children who are in the school choir, had a fantastic experience at Sheffield Arena, singing with 5000 other children.

We arrived just after lunch and rehearsed all afternoon with the conductor and band. 

At 6.30 parents arrived and the stadium was full.

At 7pm the concert began. After the months of learning the songs and dances it was time to sing our hearts out! We all loved every minute from start to finish. The lighting, band and special guests were all amazing. 

Happy New year!

We hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas , the children have certainly come back refreshed, with energy and enthusiasm!

We would also like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for all the lovely gifts at the end of term. Thank you very much.

It's going to be a really busy term  - please find the Spring newsletter below.

Please encourage the children to read every night, learn their spellings ( using the correct unit in their spring term spelling log) and complete and return homework by the deadline. Many thanks.

As our new science topic is Space, we are hoping to arrange a visit to the award winning National Space Centre this term . Details to follow.

We had a fantastic afternoon making Christmas crafts with some of our families!

Take Care Homework - Create your own island!



So far we have won 100% attendance 3 times! Keep it up Bumble Bees, well done!


We have signed up to a great interactive Maths game called Prodigy. It can be played both at home and school. Each child will have their own username and password so have a go at home and see how high you can reach on the class leader board!


School Council

I would like to say a huge well done to all of the children that put themselves forward for school council. You worked so hard to create some brilliant manifestos and it took a lot of courage to speak in front of the class on your own.  

After our exciting visit to the polling station, the votes were counted and I am pleased to announce our school councillor for the Bumble Bess is Isabella Clay , supported by her deputy Daisy Baker. 

Congratulations to you both!

For those who were unable to make the parent meeting . Please see the PowerPoint attached below, which gives details of what was discussed at the meeting. Thank you.


Year 5 will be swimming every Monday afternoon until February half term.

Please ensure your child is able to remove earrings themselves, tie their hair back and wear the correct swimming attire.

Girls -one piece costumes. Boys no 'surfer style shorts'. The swimming teachers request that they wear trunks.

Thank you.

Daily Mile

Year 5 are taking part in the 'daily mile' this term. We have had a successful week so far, running or walking (or a bit of both!) 4 laps of the field. The weather has been kind to us and it has been a fantastic way to start our mornings, running in the fresh air with our friends.

The aim of the daily mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and well being of our children.
We put on our trainers and are out first thing in the morning. It's lots of fun! We are certainly starting to feel fitter and we have our own little goals to achieve each day.


"I believe The Daily Mile will have a huge impact on young people's lives, helping children across the UK to be fitter, healthier and happier. I'm delighted to be supporting The Daily Mile, and hope that every child has the opportunity to take part in this fantastic initiative."
