Year 5 World Book Day

On World Book Day we came to school in our pyjamas, we shared our favourite books and read with our buddies in class 1BW.

Year 5 Science Week

During Science Week, Year 5 enjoyed a visit from the ‘Science Bus.’ – Year 7 students from Thorpe St Andrew School visited and lead a series of exciting scientific investigations for them.

Year 5 Autumn 2 2018

The traditional Year 5 Cooking Day with a sprinkle of maths and creativity. The children made pizza, stained glass window cookies, fraction fruit kebabs, Christingles and more.

Year 5 Autumn 2018

Year 5 had a wonderful residential experience in the beautiful North Norfolk Countryside and grounds of Holt Hall.

The sun shone the entire time as we explored the inhabitants and food webs of the lake, camouflage and adaptation under the leaves and survival, fire lighting and den building in the woods.

We ventured further afield to create sand sculptures and poetry in the beautiful pinewoods and beach of Wells.

Evenings were spent together, singing, hearing stories, creating dream catchers and the traditional bingo challenge and pyjama fashion show.

The children were an absolute delight to share the 3 days with.

Year 5 Summer 1

We have had a busy time in Year 5.In Maths we have worked hard making cocktails whilst practising our measuring and proportion skills. We have also learnt about squared and cubed numbers. Learning about Peru has been a highlight, and we tasted avocado, quinoa and Peruvian potatoes. A major project this term has been to write our own Borrowers’ story and make a house for them. We enjoyed sharing our work with Year1.

Year 5 Spring Term 2018

Year 5 have had an extremely active half term: we started with a pizza box!

This enquiry led us to explore fractions with a pizza theme. We designed pizzas, ate pizzas and created our own pizza delivery firm.

This was followed by science investigations related to materials, their properties and uses.

We made towers to support eggs, bridges to hold the greatest weight, an umbrella to keep a toy dry. Following on from this, we looked at reversible and irreversible changes (AKA cooking and chocolate eating!)

Developing this theme of materials, we moved on to explore Forces. Gravity, air and water resistance were investigated by activities involving the design and construction of   aeroplanes and boats.
