Evacuation Day - September 2021

The year 5 children have been learning all about what it would have been like to be an evacuee during WW2.

We had a great day dressing up and walking down to the train station to imagine what it would have been like. We then walked to Ravensmere to be billeted. Some of us were not happy with the new families we were given. 

Sports Festival - September 2021

Year 5 had a fantastic time at the Sports Festival. Everyone tried to do their best for their teams at a range of challenges. It was a real pleasure and inspiration to have Gold Medal winning Paralympian Jordan  Catchpole supporting us along with all the parents.

Year 5 WW2 Autumn Term

Children in Need - November 2020

For Children in Need year 5 looked at some maths money problems. They used a range of strategies to solve the problems.



Evacuee Day - November 2020


Year 5 found out what it was like to be an evacuee. They dressed up in 1940s clothing and we re-created the day of an evacuee.


We used drama to explore what it would have been like saying goodbye to their families and what it may have been like on the train journey. The children had evacuee numbers and these were used to designate their new host families.





Henry Moore - November 2020


As part of our WW2 topic, we looked at art work of Henry Moore and his abstract sculptures. We used clay to make our own abstract sculptures.





Poppies - November 2020


Today in Maths year 5 were seeing where the maths was in a poppy. We calculated the area of different poppies and we used string to help us accurately measure the perimeter of each poppy.
