Hi All,


We are all so pleased to be starting a new year at school in Portsdown. We are all very much looking forward to the fabulous learning and fun we will have this year. 


Our P.E day in Year 5 is a Wednesday and the children will be starting with some classic games which will lead onto dance in Autumn 2.



In 5LH we have Miss Humphreys, Miss Simpson and Mrs Crisp.

In 5LH we have Mrs Knight, Mrs O'Brien and Miss Blades.


We look forward to the year ahead.

New Home Learning!


Hi Year 5, 

Well done - you've made it to the final week of home learning and the last week of Year 5! We are so proud of how resilient and hard working you have been throughout this strange time! You should be very proud of yourselves! There are only 3 sessions on each document as Wednesday 22nd is the last day of term! I have included some fun activities seeing as it's our final week (there is a prize up for grabs on the English sheet)! I hope you enjoy the tasks - feel free to email us your work! 


We hope you enjoy the summer holidays and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Stay safe, have fun and take care.

 The Minotaur Description


Waiting silently, in the darkness, is the Minotaur. Its lava-like eyes glow red in the dark as it searches the passages ahead for movement. Standing enveloped by the shadows, its fingers are tightly clutching a mighty axe; its chest rises and falls sending spirals of fiery breath into the Labyrinth. His deafening roar begins to echo through the crumbling walls as the vicious monstrosity grows weary of waiting. His hoof-like feet fiercely pound the dusty floor, revealing a carpet of bones clinically stacked around his throne, almost like a shine to his menacing nature. Suddenly, his deformed ears recognised the familiar shriek of the bolt being released and the last pleads for life from his new guests. Swiftly, he moves his slender frame further backwards into the shadowy crevices of the labyrinth, fixating his eyes on the corner ahead.  

King Midas and golden wish story
