Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

The enthusiastic staff in Year 5 are Miss Poynter, Miss Vaux, Mrs Stanley, Mrs Davis and Mrs Fletcher.

Below contains details of the activates the children in Year 5 2017 - 2018 were involved in. Soon this will be updated with the great things our new Year 5 2018 - 2019 will be doing!

Science fun (May 2018)

In science, year 5 have been investigating the varying amount of friction between a toy car and different surfaces.

During Science week, year 5 took part in some exciting workshops. First of all we applied what we had been learning about gravity and materials to create a safe landing for our 'egganaughts'. Later in the week we were excited to take part in space virtual reality. Year 5 were able to brush up on their knowledge about the solar system and apply what they had learned during our 'Out of this World' topic.

The year 5 residential to France was another great success! The children bravely tackled new challenges, learned to become more independent and responsible and worked brilliantly as a team. They all took part in their activities with enthusiasm and put their French in to practice at the local cafe and market. The children had the most incredible time and so many people commented on their excellent behaviour and wonderful manners. The whole team were so proud of them and their achievements!

To begin our Tudor topic, year 5 had great fun acting out the key events from the Battle Bosworth which marked the beginning of the Tudor reign. The children took on the role of iconic figures such as: Henry Tudor and the Lancastrians, Richard III and the Yorkists and Lord Stanley and his men who all played a vital role in the events of the fateful day, which led to the death of a king on the battlefield and an end to the War of the Roses.
