Speed Dating Planets15-01-2019 | 15:54:08 | No Comments

Today in Year 5 we have begun learning a little more about the planets. Set around the class were fact files about each planet and the children had 3 minutes to visit each one and write down the facts they found most interesting. A super afternoon of scientific discoveries, well done Year 5!

PCSO Visit – A look at modern policing21-12-2018 | 11:59:05 | No Comments

Yesterday, Year 5 enjoyed a visit from our local PCSOs who showed the children their transporter and allowed the children to see the type of equipment they use in their work. It was a fantastic experience and the children were able to make comparisons to Victorian policing as part of their topic work. A big thank you to our PCSOs for sharing this with us.

Year 5 went for a walk to the local park today, to put their newly made scavenger bags to good use. Working in pairs, they tried to find objects of interest and then shared them with other pairs to see what they had discovered.

Year 3 and Year 5 attended church today to mark the start of advent with a Christingle service. All the children represented themselves and the school beautifully and a lovely time was had by all as we lit the church with candles. 

Industrial Debate22-11-2018 | 12:28:27 | No Comments

Yesterday, Year 5 put their learning to good use by debating whether the Industrial Revolution was a good or a bad thing. Both sides of the argument were explored and some children took on the role of Victorians Lords and Ladies to help argue their opinions. All the children voiced their opinions with clarity and some showed promise as politicians of the future!

Year 5 made a fantastic start to their scavenger bags this week. They persevered with threading their needles and worked to help each other cut their material. They had some lovely ideas and we are looking forward to getting them finished next week.

Conker Battles22-10-2018 | 14:33:12 | No Comments

Today we have had a cracking time in Forest Schools! Working as a team we finished our strings, drilled our conkers and prepared to do battle. Everyone followed the rules and battled valiantly to see if their conker was the toughest of the lot. It was a great way to finish our first half-term’s sessions.

A big thank you to Mrs Salt who came in and read to our class yesterday. We enjoyed your reading of ‘The Football Boy Wonder’ and it had a lovely message as we followed Charlie Fry trying to overcome his difficulties. Many thanks 🙂
