Year 5 explored a variety of materials to help them formulate an idea of how to build their motorised car next week.

May the Force Be With You

We have been investigating different kind of forces this term. Here are some action shots from an afternoon where we tested water resistance against different shapes.

We're Going on a Rex Hunt

Our ebook inspired from the classic children's novel 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'.

7.2.2022 - Today we introduced the 5 Wells and started with 'Be Active'. We played three fun, enjoyable games (balloon volleyball, quick ping pong & jumping rock, paper, scissors). We discussed what we do currently to be active, what goal we could set and the many benefits it gives.

8.2.2022 - Connect - We discussed how we connect with others and how else we can try connecting going forward. We discussed what connecting with people feels like and why it is important to do so. 

We played two games: a game of 'Would you Rather...' & web connections, where we indentified connections  with others in our class.

Today we painted our planets with our mixed ready-made paints. They look amazing! Good job Year 5.

We have spent two afternoons manipulating and sculpting things you'd find on a planet's surface using mod-roc to create our own planet. We now just need to paint them. Stay tuned!

Fairtrade Gingerbread!

Science - 3.12.2021

Year 5 have had a belting afternoon separating mixtures with different methods of separation. These included sand with water, raisons and flour, water and salt & pins & rice.

Year 5 had a cracking afternoon learning about Fairtrade and the benefits it provides. We tasted some Fairtrade products.


Coffee produced the loudest 'ews' and the funniest faces.


We've created some posters to put around school to bring the rest of the school to an awareness of the different options they could choose when shopping.

Maths Week

Here is one of the many activities we did this week for Maths Week England. We were creating optical illusions with basic 2D shapes through drawing and measuring. 

Year 5 had a lovely day learning about the Great War and the reasons why we celebrate remembrance day. A highlight was certainly these beautiful poppies that we made.


Lest We Forget

Spooky Friday!

Prayer Service - Talents & Qualities - 30.9.2021

We have come to the end of our first RE topic, which was all about our God-given talents and qualities. All the children worked hard to plan and carry out our prayer service. It was a lovely time for reflection and appreciation!
