Year 5

2022 - 2023

What a fabulous trip to Muncaster we had. Camping was so much fun!!

Well done to our Year 5 children for completing their Bikeability this Month - a great achievement.

May 2022 - We have been busy measuring angles today in Year 5. We used masking tape on the desks to create the different angles. As you can see, they were doing a fantastic job.

February 2022 - Small sided games in Netball to practice marking and finding space.

February 2022 - As part of our Viking topic, we have been creating dragon eyes (drawing and clay). They are inspired by the dragon figurehead’s which were often seen on Viking long ships.

We kicked off anti-bullying week with Odd Socks Day. This reminded us all that it's ok to be different!

This Remembrance day, we took part in a minutes silence in our bubble. We also completed some art work and made a joint display for the school playground. Lest we forget.

In Computing, we have been learning about programming - devising and debugging algorithms and working out how to make our Micro:bits count votes in a poll, display a short animation and show different screens. The focus in these lessons has been amazing!

As part of our science work on Earth and Space, we were thinking about how the Earth's rotation affects how our shadows look during the course of the day. We used torches and moved them to replicate the Earth's rotation and observed how the shadows changed. We learnt lots. 

The children really enjoyed their day in Ancient Greece. They did tea bag pottery, created mythical creatures, competed in the ancient Olympics and enjoyed an ancient Greek feast!

In small groups, Year 5 have been learning some Yoga to help with their general wellbeing. These sessions have been very popular!

We have been using counters to help us to understand exchange when adding and subtracting in Maths.

The children enjoyed making and refining their stop motion animations in Computing.

In Art this term, we have been looking at the work of Hannah Hock. We have created collages, refined our use of line and tone in drawing, complete detailed pictures of eyes and had great fun!
