Year 5

Coin Wars in Year 5

A huge thank you for all the donations towards Coin Wars this week! As well as raising an amazing amount of money, all the children had great fun making and measuring their coin snakes. Thank you once again!

Egyptian Sarcophagus

Birch class used their fantastic creative skills today during Design and Technology to create their own amazing Egyptian Sarcophagus!! Some even used ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to create their own names! As you can see, the results were quite impressive 👍🏻

Year 5 Cake Bake!

This morning, Year 5 contributed to Friday’s cake bake sale by making white chocolate cornflake crunchies. As I’m sure you’ll agree, they look rather delicious! A huge thank you to Charlie and Liam for their superb domestic skills when washing up!

Mexican Clay Masks

Year 5 had a fabulous (if rather messy) time preparing their Mexican clay masks for our Express Event next Wednesday afternoon. Manipulating the clay was slightly harder than they first anticipated; the results however were definitely worth the effort! A huge thank you to Mrs Hughes for organising and supplying the equipment.

Mexican Art!

Birch class had an enjoyable afternoon reproducing art work using colours and styles indigenous to Mexico. We learnt why certain colours are frequently used by Mexican artists and why bright blue is also a common colour used within their art.      

World Book Day

Year 5 have had a fantastic World Book Day! The character costumes that many of the children wore were brilliant and incredibly creative. All of the class participated in different activities throughout the day; their attitude and behaviour has been exemplary, especially when reading with the younger members of our school. Well done Birch class!

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!!
