Going going gone!! Ms Tarr with 2 lovely little helpers set up an ice pop stand to raise funds for extra bits for WRAPZ - by the time Ms Stickland made it out there at 3.40 it was sold out! They will be back tomorrow so make sure you have your 50p! 🍦


The Reception gardening club have been doing a great job at caring for our plants in this gorgeous weather. We have now extended the invitation to the children in KS1 to water the plants and vegetables at break time through a rota 🌾🌻

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 for Summer 2 term everyone! 

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Reflecting on the last term, we are really proud of Year 5 for 2 key reasons.  First, we trained for and completed an incredible 300 mile collective walk up to Alexandra Palace.  Although many told us they didn’t think it possible, every child dug deep and made it up the hill.  What a thrill!  Secondly, 5M won the Times Table Rock Stars award for participation and are starting to really get better at times tables, which shows in maths lessons getting easier for everyone.

This term in English, we will focus on writing based on music.  We will look to use our full range of AP sentences and descriptive language to describe music and the history of music.   This will help the children prepare for the rigours of Year 6 writing expectations with a fun topic.

In reading, we will read Hacker by Malorie Blackman.  I have been reading Hacker over the half term and it’s an excellent story with a teen protagonist who gets in over her head trying to save her father.  

Malorie Blackman writes stories with black children as central characters.  I think this is very important for all the children.  Research 2 years ago showed that only 1 percent of characters in children’s books are black and animal characters are 8 times as likely to appear as black children.  That’s ridiculous and must change.  

Our school theme this half term is Empire. We will look at how the Victorians built an empire stretching across 25% of the world and then consider both the benefits and costs to the local people around the world.  This will be a challenging topic acknowledging some of the mistakes of the British empire as it expanded.  Topics like this are very important to study in depth to ensure we don’t repeat the mistakes of the past.

In Geography, we will return to London after studying the USA, China and world trade earlier in the year.  We will study our local area and the economy of Tottenham, concluding with a geographical field study of litter in Downhills park.  Expect your child to remind you not to litter on your next trip to the park.

In Science, we will  learn about materials and how they can change state. We will include more experiments and is sure to fascinate the children. In addition, we are finally launching our project with NASA and ISSET that might lead to some HPAPL scientists experiments going into space.

In Maths we are moving on to the fun exploration of geometry and shapes.  There will be lots of problem solving in this area as we use our knowledge and apply it to solve problems across the curriculum.  To support your children at home, please ensure they do the weekly Mathletics homework that is set, which consolidates the learning in class.

In RE, we will focus this term on how Christians make decisions.   We will look at how important it is to Love thy neighbour and consider why this concept has application to our lives and decision-making regardless of our religion.
