Year 5

Spelling Bee

Well done to the children who took part in the Spelling Bee. Year 5 had some very tough words and the three children who entered worked extremely hard to practise their words. We are very proud of you.

Year 5 Express Event

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Express Event this term. We had lots of fun investigating which tools would be the best substructure for a bird’s beak. We used tweezers, a big peg, a little peg, scissors and thumb and finger to pick up grains of rice.

Term 3 Tribal Event

Year 5 showed some super stamina competing in this term’s tribal event this morning! After organising the children into their tribes, Lewis timed them for 30 seconds whilst they completed as many push ups as possible. Quite a few achieved some impressive numbers! Well done to Megan who still participated by doing star jumps.

Poppy’s marvellous donation!

The whole school came together today for a very special event. Poppy bravely donated her beautiful hair to The Little Princess Trust, an organisation that provides wigs for poorly children. Poppy’s mum, a hairdresser, came into school to cut her hair in front of an awestruck audience! We are all extremely proud of you Poppy! Continue reading

HMS Beagle

Year 5 spent this afternoon looking at the journey Darwin took on the HMS Beagle. They located the 11 countries and plotted it on their world maps. All the children worked extremely hard and produced some great work.

Darwin’s Delights

During English this week, Birch class have worked extremely hard to research the life of Charles Darwin and write their own biography about the eminent British naturalist. Their effort and interest in this task has produced some very impressive results; well done Birch class!

Year 5 Tribal Event

Year 5 took part in the school’s tribal event this morning; how many skips could they achieve in a minute? As well as having a lot of fun, a lot of effort was also involved! It was quite interesting to watch their different styles of skipping, some rather more unusual than others!

Living Things

This term, Year 5 and 6 will be making observations of the living things we find around the school. We started off this week by looking at a section of the field. We found a variety of things including grass, twigs, conker  shells, leaves, flowers and bugs.

Card Game Club

We had lots of fun in Card Game Club today. The children played brilliantly together and taught each other a variety of different games. We played Pokemon, Solitaire, Crazy Eights, Top Trumps, Twizzle and Bonk.
