On Friday 1st March, Year 5 children and staff invited parents and family to come along and take part in a variety of English activities. It was a fun and engaging morning with everybody enjoying participating and learning different aspects of English.  

Thank you to everybody who was able to attend.

Throughout the Spring term Year 5 have been learning all about space through our topic - 'Out of this World'. One part of the learning was understanding how we get night and day and all about the different phases of the moon. 

 

Once the children had watched some interesting videos about the phases of the moon and had made diagrams and notes in their books from the teacher input, the children had to put their knowledge to the test! In groups the children had to create the different phases using Oreo biscuits. They absolutely loved it and put their knowledge into practise creating lots of moons. 

 
   

The Year 5 children thoroughly enjoyed a visit from the 'Star Dome' on Tuesday 12th February. As part of the Year 5 topic this term 'Out of this World' the children have been learning all about Space and our solar system. Experiencing the Star Dome gave the children the opportunity to look at and learn about the various star constellations, phases of the moon, space news and much more besides.  

 Thank you for your continued support for these learning opportunities and experiences  for the children.

 

On Wednesday 23rd January, the Year 5 children had a visit from Sensei David, the Chief Instructor of 'The Martial Arts Centre' in Braintree. The children were given the opportunity to learn new skills and disciplines in Karate and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, learning various blocks, punches and kicks.
