Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Class Value: Forgiveness


Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites.

Year 5 have been designing and constructing their own board games this morning, based on a Mathematical concept they have learnt this year. They are looking forward to sharing this during the curriculum afternoon.

We have just arrived back from the Golden Hinde and what a fantastic trip it was! Once we arrived we were teleptorted back in time to 1577. We were ready (in full costume) to prepare the cannons, meet with the master, complete a bit of sword fighting and even meet the on board surgeon, which was quite grim. After all that, we then had a taste of the food on the ship, with the bread being a popular option. I want to say a big thank you to Year Five for embracing their roles and for our gracious hosts at the Golden Hinde. 

To kill, or not to kill King Duncan... a Year 5 debate

Today in Literacy Year 5 took part in a class debate. The children prepared their own arguments yesterday in class and put them into action today, arguing for or against the murder of King Duncan. Year 5 have been enthusiastically learning the story of Macbeth and are producing some excellent work in class.

Macbeth Debate

Year 5 had a fantastic time during sports week. They particularly enjoyed the circuits session which you can see from the photos below. The freestyle football workshop was great fun and Year 5 were able to put their new play-leader skills to excellent use by setting up activities for all the other year groups.

What is your happy place?

 

While looking at promoting positive mental health, we have been exploring our happy places. For this piece of work we are discussing what makes us happy and why it's important to understand our feelings, then we are expressing this through our artwork. Today the children have been sketching in preparation for a final collage which will be completed later in the week.
