Return to Children

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 with Mrs Tucker, Mrs Wood, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Mills!

The children have made an excellent start to the new school year and have already shown excellent levels of resilience and dedication to their learning. In English we have been working hard to develop and enrich our vocabulary through poetry and other descriptive writing activities. The children’s love of reading is clearly apparent and is already having an impact on the quality of the writing they produce in class on a daily basis.

We are excited for the year ahead as we have lots to look forward to this year, including Balloon Buggies and Robotics workshops, a visit from the local fire brigade, a Faith Tour class trip and of course our residential trip (all Covid-19 dependant)!

Christmas Science Enquiry!

As a way of developing our scientific enquiry skills, each year group took part in a Christmas themed science experiment. The children had to investigate dissolving candy canes, making decisions about the scientific questions they wanted to answer and deciding how best to carry out the experiment. It was fascinating seeing how the different liquids effected the speed at which the candy canes dissolved.
