Year 5

Estimating Capacity

In Year 5 this week, we have been learning about Capacity. We started the week by estimating how much liquid could fit into various containers, including a milk bottle, cleaning spray, can of fizzy drink and a large tub of glue.

Mexican cooking

We made Mexican Chilli con carne in year 5 today; the children chopped, added and mixed all the ingredients themselves and created a delicious dish. The children got to taste the dish and mostly agreed that it was tasty – it must have been the chocolate we added!!

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!
