Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to the Year 5 website page. Here you can find information about our learning so far this year.
St Mary's DT morning
Today we were lucky enough to have teachers from St Mary's School to help us make some Christmas present bags and 3D Christmas Tree decorations.
Decorate the Classroom Day!
Well Done to Year 5 for all their hard work yesterday. Not only did they produce some great Reindeer Food bags to sell at the Christmas Fayre – they have also decorated our classroom beautifully.
A big big THANK YOU to all the parents who came to help – we could not have done it without you!
A visit from the Astronomy Roadshow Planetarium
On Monday we had a visit from
Peter Bassett FRAS
who showed us around our Solar System.
The show was really informative and interesting and the children asked many different and varied questions.
A lesson with Doctor Who!
Today we joined forces with Doctor Who to save planet Earth from destruction.
The children had to investigate how to use reflection to help the Earth overcome a planetary problem.
If you want to watch the lesson again go to BBC Live Lessons - Doctor Who, Space, Light, and Super Movers
Today we had a visit from GSK who ran a workshop which looked at Bacteria and Malaria.
The children were quite shocked at how quickly and easily it is to pass on bacteria and germs.
They were given quite a lot of information about Malaria and found out how fast Malaria can spread to different people from one mosquito!
Odd Socks Day
As part of Anti-Bullying week the children (and teachers!) wore odd socks to school. It was an opportunity for the children to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique! It was a fun day and the children enjoyed wearing their odd socks!
Science and Art!
This week we have been busy making the planets of the solar system. The children have worked well in their teams – designing and then making the planets.
The children enjoyed acting out the story of Abraham and Sarah. They have started to reflect on how these Bible stories can affect their own lives and beliefs.
Design and Technology
To finish off our theme of Robin Hood and Medieval Monarchs the children designed and then made drawstring bags.
They all enjoyed the sewing and figuring out how to ensure their ‘Gold Coins’ wouldn’t fall out!
In Science we have been looking at the Life Cycles of animals and insects. We looked at endangered animals and the children researched and produced posters to promte the wellbeing of these animals.
RE Sources of Revelation
During our lesson on the four Sources of Revelation the children worked hard in their groups to produce some great posters.
