Teams Invite

I thought we could meet tomorrow morning (10am) to play some games and have a chat before you ‘officially’ break up for your summer holidays. Please bring a piece of paper, pen/pencil and something to lean on e.g. a book for one of our activities. There is no pressure to join the call if you don’t want to but the option is there for those children that want to join. I look forward to seeing some of you on the call.

The last three days…

What should have been our last three days in Year 5 together is a little different.

You all know how much I have enjoyed teaching you again this year and I am so proud of how tremendously hard you have worked.

Unfortunately we can’t change what has happened and have to follow government guidelines with isolating so instead of our class plans for Monday/Wednesday and Blackwell on Tuesday, I have attached some projects onto an assignment on Teams for you to complete if you wish. Alternatively, you could carry out some research for your WW2 topic that you will cover in Y6.

Look out for a Teams invite for a live session together on Wednesday. I thought we could meet as a class and play some games/ have a chat before we ‘officially’ break up for summer! If anyone has any preferences as to what we do on the call, please email me

I hope you’re all enjoying this glorious sunshine!

Keep shining and smiling.

Friday Work 16.7.21

We nearly made it!

Today was going to be a slightly different day at school as Moseley Rugby Club were delivering our workshop so I’ve just attached three worksheets for you to complete. If you have a printer, you might want to print these out and write on the sheets. If not, please write on a piece of paper or in your home challenge book.

If there are any problems, please contact me via

Enjoy the sunshine today Year 5 and keep smiling.

Non-Uniform Day – Friday 16th July 2021

Our non-uniform day on Friday 16th July 2021 will be based on the children coming to school dressed as one of their favourite sporting heros! They should be spoilt for choice after an incredibly positive European Football Tournament over recent weeks, as well as only being days away from the Olympic Games in Tokyo. 

We are asking for a £1 donation that will be supporting one of our major boys’ secondary feeder schools, Wheelers Lane Technology College, in their quest to upgrade their outdoor astro-turf playing facilities. 

The school have offered to send some of their PE staff over to Woodthorpe from September as a ‘Thank You’ for our support (curriculum support / lunchtime opportunities), as well as being able to benefit from using the upgraded facilties once completed. As always, thank you for your continued support, it’s greatly appreciated by us all. 

Mr Trevor


We are hoping to develop the Reception indoor and outdoor environment over the Summer holiday. We are looking for your help!
