In science year 5 have been learning about life cycles and reproduction. This week we looked dissected flowers and investigated the different parts needed for reproduction.
100 Word Challenge - April 2021
For the Y5 100 word challenge the children wrote some fantastic poems, stories and diary entries inspired by some of Sir Tom Moore’s medals. We made 100 inspirational footsteps. We also had a maths change to make 100 using a selection of numbers and operations.

French - March 2021
In Year 5 we enjoyed playing French card games this week. It was a great way to learn new vocabulary and helped us to practise asking for ice creams and sandwiches. Délicieux! #wellbeing #backtoschool
World Book Day - March 2021
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.
