Sports Day

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

After our trip to Chester Zoo, it was sports day. Arriving in our teams colours, we made our way to Seedhill running track. Up first in the events, was the long jump for year 5 and 6.However, year 3 and 4 did javelin. Then we swapped over and year 5 and 6 did Javelin and year 3 and 4 did the long jump. Finally, our last field event was the wheelbarrow race. Unfortunately, we had to return back to school early due to  the hot weather.

Visit To Chester Zoo

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

Year 5 visited Chester zoo on Monday 25th June. At the zoo we saw lots of animals including Cheetahs, bats and lions. We went on a monorail and saw zebras. We arrived home at 6pm. It was fun but exhausting. I really want to go again.

Forest school

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

In the last week of the Spring term year 5 visited forest school. We learnt how to make survival tents, swings and parachutes. We made the swings only using a tree, a piece of rope and a wooden log as a seat. After finishing these activities we played a few fun games including playing on the swings we made to end our forest school trip.

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

In science we have been learning about forces. We have learnt that gravity pulls us to the center of the Earth and upthrust (the ground) saves us from falling. To show what we have learnt we are making toys with a rotary/linear motion.

Earth and Space

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

In science we have been looking at space and the solar system. There are 8 planets in our solar system (not including Pluto). We have been learning about space in various subjects e.g in English we have been learning about Neil Armstrong (the first on the moon). In Guided Reading we have been learning about the famous Galileo Galilei who discovered the 4 moons of Jupiter and we are doing team projects to do with Galileo such as a timeline or power point.
