    We are dinosaur inventors!

    Year 5 have been getting imaginative this week! We studied dinosaur names and the Greek prefixes and suffixes that they contain. We then worked together as a year group to create a dinosaur of our own and give it a 'proper' scientific name.

    Visual Literacy with a twist...

    On Monday we wrote from first hand experiences imagining that we were Sophie on the rooftops of Paris. In the hall we had the bars, ropes, benches and high stools set up. We all had to take off our shoes and socks or tights, if you were wearing them. All of this was so we were able to write about...

    Trips, trips glorious trips

    What a busy last few weeks of term 3 for year 5! We have enjoyed a few learning experiences that have taken place outside of school. Firstly our visit to Wildwood. It made us think about conservation work and the role of zoos in preparation for our debate at the end of the week. We learnt about t...

    Sprouting into Spring time

    For the past two weeks year 5 have been growing garlic, snowdrops and potatoes. We only put a small amount of water on them and they have made massive progress. Also every child has a bean growing for themselves in a plastic cup with a tiny bit of water. Our task was to see how long it would take to...

    Year 5 were extremely fortunate this week to have a visiting artist come and make lanterns ready for the Festival of Light parade. We had a great day of joining our bamboo together to make the frame ready for the tissue paper and PVA mix. Miss Baker was brave enough to give up her classroom...

    EVACUATE!

    Wow! What a way to start our week learning all about being evacuated! We started off by chopping up our root vegetables and placing them in the slow cooker ready to slow cook throughout the day. The aromas were mouth watering. We were lucky enough to have Mrs Venison with us to make some dumpling...

    Victorian Day

    Our day started with a finger nail inspection. Too long or dirty and we wouldn't have been allowed to attend a Victorian school. We found it strange that we had to pay 1 penny for our education (we're sure our teachers are worth more than that #bargain). Our lessons included using...
