Y5 Summer

Safari Phil and Spiky Dave Visit...

Gemma Atherton (gemmaatherton) on: Y5 Summer

Wow! What a fantastic experience the children in Y5 have had. Safari Phil brought a range of amazing animals from the Amazon into the classrooms for the children to handle and learn all about. The children were very brave (much braver than their teachers) and got to hold pythons, blue tongued lizards, cockroaches and other creepy critters. Please see the gallery for more photos.

Cricket Tournament

Gemma Atherton (gemmaatherton) on: Y5 Summer

A small group of Year 5 pupils, were given the opportunity to put some of their newly acquired cricket skills to good use. Our team took part in a cricket tournament and represented Legh Vale brilliantly. They showed great sportsmanship, team work and enthusiasm throughout. We are very proud of the children and happy to report, that they all really enjoyed their experience.

Super Sports!

Gemma Atherton (gemmaatherton) on: Y5 Summer

Year 5 really enjoyed taking part in a sports filled morning! Each child took part in every activity. They had fun participating in the egg and spoon race, 50m sprint and shot put. They even took on new sporting activities, such as the highland step and shuttle run. Year 5 showed great sportmanship and perseverance, as some of these activities proved to be quite tricky. Well done Year 5.

Plants

In Science, we have been learning all about plants. We have been busy thinking about the different parts of the plant, their functions and we have even worked in groups to dissect some.

Y5 Spring

Keeping Active

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Y5 Spring

Year 5 have been enjoying cricket lessons with a professional sports coach. So far they have learnt how to catch, throw and bowl. We have been really impressed with their sporting skills so far.


Science Week

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Y5 Spring

Year 5 had so much fun taking part in this year's Science Week. We investigated what would happen to gummy bears when placed in water and what happens to an egg when placed in vinegar. The results were very interesting and took us all by surprise. As part of our lessons on Gravity and Air Resistance, we made our own parachutes and measured the time it took for them to reach the ground. We had some excellent designs. 

    


World Book Day!

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Y5 Spring

Year 5 enjoyed taking part in a range of activities for World Book Day 2021! They even created some of their favourite characters from potatoes. Can you guess any?

 


Art Inspired by Keith Haring

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Y5 Spring

The Year 5 children have produced some wonderful pieces of art work in the style of Keith Haring. We continued to develop our sketching skills whilst incorporating Haring's use of bold colour and outlines.


Captain Sir Tom Moore

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Y5 Spring

We have been remembering and learning all about the inspirational Captain Sir Tom Moore. Year 5 have created poems, medals and even set themselves a physical challenge in memory of him. Well done Year 5!
