Meteor shower 20th April      Mum and I went into the garden at 21:50 and stayed outside until 22:10. We looked up into the night sky and we could identify the Big Dipper constellation right above us. It was quite cold, I needed to get  a blanket.
In total we saw 8 meteors pass from east to west. All except one, passed right through the middle of the Big Dipper.
I saw more meteors than I expected to. I really enjoyed watching the shower with my mum.
Totally epic!!!!!

Tuesday 21st April - Happy Birthday to Queen Elizabeth - Perhaps you would like to design her a birthday card or write a birthday poem. I can't guarantee that she will see them, but we will, because I will put them on our class page! - Mrs Bickerton

Our Great Learning 

We really do love poetry in year 5! Have a read of this poem. 

The bing bang hair ball
The bing bang hair ball,
Sleeps all night long.
The bing bang hair ball
is allergic to a tong.
The bing bang hair ball
Slippers and quietly nests.
The bing bang hair ball
then slithers to the west.
The bing bang hair ball
has an awful smell of wellies.
The bing bang hair ball
starts to be tamed by smellies.
The bing bang hair ball
quickly becomes dry with a towel.
The bing bang hair ball
Looks at the comb with eyes as large as an Owl.
The bing bang hair ball
flees to be seen no more!

Do you love reading as much as me? Click here to have a listen to our storytime. We will be updating the stories as much as possible for you to listen to. 

As well as birds we have now got a lot of nonsense poems. Year 5 certainly are a creative bunch! 

We are getting even more owls, we will have a whole zoo soon!

Year 5 have gone haiku crazy. We have had so many lovely poems - let's keep them coming. Here's a couple from Mrs Bickerton. They are addictive. 
I'm working from home
Eating too many biscuits
And chocolate cake too.
This is one I found in a poetry book called 'A haiku about getting out of bed'
No, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no!

We have had a lot of owls sent in today and we are very impressed. Mrs Bickerton loves that there are some many children joining her in the enthusiasm towards birds! Have a look at one of our haikus too! We love seeing your work so well done Year 5! Keep up the hard work. 

This morning, we have all joined in with Joe Wicks. This is done everyday at 9am on Youtube and is a great way to start the day. Have a go at home too because we have had great fun keeping active.

A prayer of thanks inspired by the Sermon on the Mount

 Dear God

Thank you that you help and love us,

That you love and bless everyone,

Not just the rich, but the poor and the merciful.

You bless the peace-makers and the ones who mourn.


Thank you that you listen to our prayers and that you are watching us,

Wherever we are and whatever happens.


Thank you that we are who we are and not all the same,

And that you look after everyone, from whatever background.

You are with us.


Thank you that you forgive us when we mess up

And that you give us more chances.

When I ask for forgiveness you give me forgiveness.

No matter if we are ill or strong, you are still with us.


Thank you that you find us when we are lost and pick us up when we fall

You are the light that conquers the dark and guides us in the darkness


You watch me wherever I go, wherever I am

Help me to trust in you.

When You knock on my door, the door will open.

Class 5Vb - science

Class 5VB have been learning about forces in Science. They have enjoyed investigating the effect of different sized parachutes on the time taken for a small parachuting teddy to reach the ground. On one particularly windy launch the brave teddy sailed off over the roof-tops and had to be rescued by Mrs Bickerton.


Before we did our Willow Pattern Design in 5AD, we rewrote the Willow Pattern Story. First, we read through the story and talked about the different language features and picked out the main points of the story. Then, we made a river plan with all of our idea’s plotting out the story. After that, we wrote in full paragraphs in our English books making sure that we used the key vocabulary that we got from the text and the narrative techniques we have learnt so far. Next, we edited in purple pen to improve it and make it perfect. Finally, we wrote up in neat in our Topic books and they all turned out looking great and were written brilliantly! Here are a few examples.


In 5AD's art class, we have been doing the Willow Pattern Design. First, looked at changing the tone, tint and shade of blue by adding black, white, grey and water. Next we analysed a willow pattern plate to see the different kinds of pattern that we could use. Then, we practiced different designs like Pagodas, trees, boats and more things to do with the story. After that, we drew a circle before planning what our real willow pattern was going to look like. Finally, we used blue paint of different tones, shades and tints to produce our final and finished willow pattern design … and they look fantastic!

science challenge

On Wednesday 22nd January the Year 5  Science team joined with children from other primary schools from the area for a STEM challenge.

We had to make a lighthouse with fully working lights and a switch. We had a ‘budget’ of £150 to spend on materials. We had to make it as tall and as sturdy as we possibly could whilst making sure the wires were hidden. We learned that triangular structures are sturdy and we learned how to connect an electrical circuit to make a switch.

We were very pleased with our lighthouse and managed to come seventh out of 18 teams. We are very proud of ourselves and would like to do more science challenges in the future.

merry christmas from 5vb
Let’s Do A Nativity

The Year 5 Christmas production was a resounding success! The children had worked very hard to learn all their parts and songs over the past few weeks. There were some stellar performances from singers – including soloists – comedians and actors alongside the usual nativity characters.

Well done to all the children for making the audience smile and for all to be reminded of the wonderful, multi-faceted Christmas message.

“We completed the Wonderwheels 5k event on Sunday 1st December! It was freezing cold and really hard work but we had a great time. Thank you so much for all your sponsorship so far to buy some new books for Cranleigh C of E Primary. All the donations were very much appreciated!”

Year 5 gymnastics has been going at a pace this term. The children have learned how to combine pencil and egg rolls along with a variety of turns and controlled landing positions. They have enjoyed using the equipment in the gym and have all challenged themselves to progress to the next level of difficulty. They are starting to choreograph synchronised movements in small groups to great effect.

Our School Trip

By Izzy Year 5VB


Yesterday we went to Winchester Science Museum with Years 5VB and 5AD. We travelled by coach and had a lot of fun! Our topic is space so it fitted in very well indeed.

Our first activity was “Exploring Space”. There was an experiment where you learn to programme a robot. I enjoyed it because I got in the day’s top ten – three times! I also enjoyed it when I got in an astronaut suit and my mother took a photo of me and my friends in it. Our next activity was all of the experiments upstairs. I absolutely loved the experiment with metallic gold paper where you looked at it from different angles and it reflected little rainbows on the paper.

Then, the most amazing activity yet was the planetarium. It was all about galaxies, constellations and the solar system. We figured out that the North Star is straight off the end of the Big Dipper. So now we will never, ever get lost! (I think I might still though.)

After that, we went to a robotic workshop. It was such fun. We programmed Steve, the robot, with Crumble. At the end we made Steve do a very fun dance.

I hope that I will come back in half term. I would suggest it to every single person in the world. I hope everybody would enjoy it as much as I did. If I could, I wouldn’t leave!

year 5's tag rugby

Year 5 have been thoroughly enjoying learning tag rugby skills. Each week they are improving their ability to dodge and move quickly; think strategically; carry out pop and swing passes, and communicate with team mates. Coach Josh and Coach Ben have been particularly impressed with their commitment to learn a tricky new invasion game so enthusiastically and to remain calm under pressure.
