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.

Forces

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.

Pantomime Oh Yes It Is!

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

We went to the Alhambra Theater and watched Cinderella. There was scares and laughs some even in 3D. Buttons was hilarious. My favorite character was Buttons because of his jokes. They even flew on a coach. Fortunately Cinderella had a happy ending as most fairy tales do.

Visit By Ofsted

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

This week two pupils from every class got chosen to do an interview with an inspector. We had a positive attitude and we were talking about what we were doing in and around school. Also, we were talking about rules and expectations e.g use positive language and never give up! Furthermore,we had great confident answers to the questions the inspector asked. A fact is that the teachers worked really hard to impress the inspector and were very proud of what we said.
