In year 5 we have really enjoyed working with our brand new maths equipment. We have been playing place value games, working with Dienes and doing some complicated calculations!

 

 

On behalf of our community, Year 5  would like to say a great big thank you for all of donations to the 2019 harvest festival! 

We were able to collect and donate an overwhelming amount of food to the local foodbank that will go a long way to helping families!

 

As part of anti-bullying week, year 5 came into school wearing our odd socks! We also designed some puzzle pieces to represent the different children in the class. We did this to show we are all unique but we all fit together!

 For our topic in the Autumn term we have been learning all about space! 

We took a class trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester.

We had a fantastic time looking at all the exhibits, watching a planetarium show and creating our own aliens. 

It really was a long.... but brilliant day! 

 

 

 

For enterprise week, we decided to get 'crafty'. We pulled out some hammers and nails and worked hard to create some fantastic Christmas woodwork pictures that we went on to sell at the school's Christmas fair.  The finished products were brilliant!! 

 

In science, we have been learning all about forces including gravity and friction! We have learnt all about air resistance and how this can slow down moving objects. We decided to put our knowledge and design and technology skills to the test by building parachutes! We designed and built our own parachutes to try and transport an egg safely to the ground. Unfortunately, some of the eggs didn't make it in one piece...

Year 5 took an afternoon out of school to visit the church. We were given lots of information about Refugees. We tried our best to create family size shelters with limited resources and time... 

 

Take a look at our gallery to see how it went.
