Writer of the week!13-10-2017 | 14:49:34 | No Comments

It’s been another fantastic week for writing in Year 5. We’ve become Jim Jarvis from Street Child and written diary entries and then used our experiences from Moorside to write recounts of our science experiments. This week, Evie Peake has impressed in 5KB and Leah Aldridge in 5JL were both picked as this week’s writers of the week. Well done to both girls who tried really hard with the language used and their presentation. 5 dojos to you both!

Science at Moorside13-10-2017 | 14:35:33 | 1 Comment

This week, the whole of Year 5 visited the science department at Moorside to continue our learning about gases. Using equipment in the laboratories we were able to create some gases of our own and test them in different ways. We examined carbon dioxide, hydrogen and oxygen. It was lots of fun and everyone represented our school brilliantly! Well done to all 🙂

The Great Outdoors!10-10-2017 | 15:58:57 | 2 Comments

Class 5KB had a lovely autumnal afternoon today. We observed changes in the season and the plants in our environment which raised a lot of interesting questions such as; Why are there toadstools around the base of the tree? Which animals would eat these plants.

We then collected sticks and made frames so that we could use them to frame our seasonal snapshots of autumn leaves. It was a super afternoon!

Writers of the Week!06-10-2017 | 16:19:47 | 1 Comment

It’s been another exciting week reading more of Street Child by Berlie Doherty. This week, Year 5 were challenged to write poems inspired by the workhouse and Jim’s daring escape, making use of simile and metaphor to add imagery and drama to their work. There poems were so good that there had to be 2 writers of the week. Huge well done to both William Mellor and Arlo Carp who wowed us with their work. You can see their poems below. Excellent work boys – 5 dojos each!

Police Cadets04-10-2017 | 14:23:57 | No Comments

Today we celebrated the achievements of the Year 5 police cadets with an assembly attended by the Staffordshire Police Commissioner Matthew Ellis. Alongside parents, we watched as our cadets made their promises and were awarded their certificates. Year 5 even got to ask the commissioner questions. All children and the PCSO’s  involved have worked incredibly hard and it was great to recognise their hard work today.


Inspirational Maths Week04-10-2017 | 14:01:56 | No Comments

This week we are learning to approach all maths work with a more positive mind-set. Activities inspired by Jo Boaler are helping us to see maths in a whole new light. Here we are creating graphs in all 4 quadrants using topics of our own choosing.

Super Science!19-09-2017 | 08:52:00 | 3 Comments

This week in science we have been investigating the properties of different materials. Working in groups, we devised our own test for magnetism and transparency and we assessed the flexibility and permeability too. We then used this information to decide what use each material would be best for. It was great fun to get our hands on some materials for ourselves!

Huge well done to both Chloe and Charlotte for being Writers of the Week! They both showed fantastic flair during our work focusing on grammar and were able to use fronted adverbials, prepositional openers and relative clauses in a variety of ways. Super job girls, keep up the good work.

Well done to Maggie for a beautifully written adventure story about a magic globe. It was packed with detail and action. She earned herself 5 dojos and a headteacher’s sticker. A super start to Year 5!
