SCHOOL’S OUT!

 

Thank you for such a wonderful year Year 5! It’s been a blast and you should all be so proud of how far you have come. Thank you parents for all your lovely cards and gifts today. Have a happy and safe summer break.

Here are some pictures of us enjoying our party!

 

Year 5 Geography Fun!

For our continents topic, Year 5 are creating papier mache globes! We can’t wait to show you them when they’re finished – watch this space!

Teamwork in Maths

Year 5 have been developing their teamwork skills in Maths through group problem solving activities. The problems involved using all four operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing) and really tested our brains! By working together, communicating well and helping each other out, we all got there in the end! Well done Year 5!

Warning: prisoners on the loose from Azkaban!

These wizards and witches have escaped from Azkaban! If you have any information about the whereabouts of these prisoners, please contact the Ministry of Magic immediately (by owl post).

Diwali in Y5

Yesterday, we ended our half term with learning about Diwali, the festival of light, and made our very own Rangoli patterns.

We then finished off our Literacy unit on Danny Champion of the World by watching the film . We have loved reading this Roald Dahl classic!

Thank you for wonderful half term Y5 – you have worked so hard! Have a lovely break!

Macmillan Coffee Morning in Year 5

Year 5 had a great time joining in with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan.

Thank you to everyone who brought in cakes – we had a wonderful selection!

Lola was definitely our Star Baker with her wonderful ice cream cake concoction! Wow!

We also had hot chocolate and marshmallows to accompany our cake! Yum!

We also had a Bake Off Competition where children designed their dream cake. There were some very interesting designs with some very inventive ingredients (baked bean cake, anyone?)

Well done to Lily who won the competition with her four tiered gingerbread cake design!

Celebrating Creation in Year 5

As part of our Creation topic in RE, Year 5 visited St Francis in our Prayer Garden to have a moment of reflection and celebration for all the wonderful things that God created around us. We shared stories of St Francis and his connection with nature and then used his Canticle of Creation as inspiration to write our own Canticle. There were some beautiful and thoughtful words of praise and thanks. Well done Year 5!
