Welcome to Year 5!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
In Year 5, we have been studying Space and the Solar System through our 'Cosmic' topic. The children studied colour, texture and graffiti in Art and, after creating their own graffiti, they used the skills to create stencilled bold pieces of planet Art using sponges and Cosmic-coloured paints. Working in pairs, the children produced amazing pieces of art work showing various planets in the Solar System.
To follow on from that, the children created a working Space buggy in DT which included an electrical circuit and pulley system. Through careful design and testing, the children raced their finished products and assessed them for speed, reliability and functionality. The children worked diligently to produce a finished product which was amazing and the children brought away a variety of skills including how to saw, make circuits and switches and how to build aerodynamic bodywork as a finishing touch.
This year, the school is taking part in Sign2Sing where the children will sign a song as a whole school in assembly. We will do this on 28th February. Below are the clips that we will be using in class to prepare but if your child would like to, they can also practice at home!
NSPCC Feedback survey
Year 5 have taken part in a ‘Speak Out. Stay Safe’ workshop presented by the NSPCC where the children learnt about how to stay safe. They discussed their safe places and people who they can trust.
As a result of this visit, the NSPCC would like the children to complete a short feedback survey if possible.
If your child would like to complete this survey, please follow the link below:
Thanks for your cooperation
