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!

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

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!
