Welcome to 5R, I am Mr Rippon and I will be working hard so that all the pupils can reach their potential. I am joined by fabulous Mrs Martin, who is extremely organised and dedicated to help every single child. I will be making the curriculum as exciting as possible using cross-curricular links where possible.  This year we are looking the topics of Coal Mining, Europe and War & Peace.

Holes Drama


We have been reading Holes and are 7 chapters. The latest chapter was complex as it included a flashback, so the children worked in groups of 6-7 to act out the chapter. This really developed their understanding of the chapter.

That History Bloke

On Monday 25th September, that history bloke visited year 5 to talk about our topic of coal mining. He brought a variety of different artefacts such as: helmets, shovel, stephenson lamp and a pickaxe. In addition, the children looked at coal mining in the local area and all the roles within a mine. 

Friction Experiment

In science, all the pupils created their own experiment looking at friction to see which shoes had the best grip.
