This week pupils have interviewed for next year's House Captains and Vice Captains by Mrs Crolla and Mrs Porter. They were then voted for and elected by the current Y6s. We would like to introduce our new House Captains and Vice Captains and wish them well with their duties!

We also had a fun week taking part in science experiments as part of our school Science Week! Thanks for all the plastic bottles you sent in!

Week beginning 25.6.18

It has been assessment week in Year 5 as well as sports day! The children have taken it all in their stride and impressed their teachers with how much they have learned this year. We have also been taking part in some outdoor maths, creating our own World's Worst Children in the style of David Walliams and dressing up as scientists to raise money for Science Week next week. For our science experiment we will need lots of empty 2 litre bottle. Please send any you have in on Monday.



We also want to say a big "WELL DONE" to two of our pupils who had over 34 inches of hair cut off between them to donate to The Little Princess Trust to make wigs for children. They have also been asking for sponsors so they can raise money for Cancer Research.

Week beginning 18.6.18

This week in English, we have been excellent news reporters, finishing our first news article (based on the sentencing of Stanley Yelnats in Holes) and investigating for our second report (based on the story of Kissing Kate Barlow in Holes), which we will write next week. In maths, we have been continuing to learn about angles and to find missing angles in triangles and rectangles. In the afternoons, we have been artists-  studying the artwork of Gustav Klimpt, experimenting with paint, collage and other materials and using different techniques to create our own artwork in a similar style. Next week, as a school, we will be celebrating David Walliams Week - please bring in any David Walliams books you have to share with the class. Click on the link below to find out more.

Week beginning 11.6.18

Year 5 have come back to school after the half term break ready and rearing to go. In English, we started writing a newspaper article and I have been so impressed by the mature choices of vocabulary (misdemeanour, perpertrator and accomplice are just a few of the amazing words used)! In Maths this week, we learnt to use a protractor and discovered that angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees - then used what we have found out to solve problems. We have also started our new science topic "Lifecycles and Animals including Humans - growing up". Check out the pictures of our super scientists at work below:

This week we have been immersing ourselves in the book Image result for holes book"Holes" by Louis Sachar. We have written some fantastic setting descriptions, then spent Thursday afternoon den-building and role-playing being campers at Camp Green Lake. Next week, this will help us to write a Survival Guide!  



In Maths, we have been grappling with perimeter and area, working hard every lesson to master these skills. In fact, we've worked so hard, that we definitely deserve an extra day off! Enjoy the bank holiday weekend everyone.

Half Term 4 - "Launch into Space"

Our current Science topic is the Earth and Space. We will be investigating the movements of the sun and moon and other planets in our solar system. We will also be linking this to our English work. Looking at the Space Race and producing reports and balanced arguments.
