A walk around Year 5

Welcome, as the new school year progresses we look forward to populating this page with all sorts of interesting information from Year 5. Please visit us again soon.

21 January 2019 - Lincoln, one of our many enthusiastic year 5's, got up early this morning to brave the icy winter conditions to snap a rare photo of the super wolf blood moon, a phenomenon which will only appear again after many years to come. We had to reduce the image quality for the website, so the quality of the photo shown here may not do his actual photo much justice.

26th November 2018: Year 5 took part in a Live lesson! They helped Doctor Who save the solar system by becoming super movers. While getting their hearts racing they also learned some interesting facts about our solar system and how light works.

It's all about science for year 5! Year 5 had a great science assembly recently, delivered by Melanie Rogers from @vattenfall. We learned all about renewable energy and how our local wind turbines work!

Kingswood - 21st September 2018

Our year 5's took on some exciting challenges by journeying to Kingswood on Friday the 21st September. Contending not only with everything the severe stormy weather could throw at them, they took on the activities with great enthusiasm, putting all their energy into having fun.

Trips like this are fanatastic ways of teaching children independence, resilience and the value of team work. It was great to see the children working and having fun together, getting to know themselves and each other better.
