To go further than I thought; to run faster than I hoped; to reach higher than I dreamed.

Step Inside Year Five

Welcome to our Year 5 Class Page! Please have a look through at the amazing things we have been up to in Year 5 this year!

Autumn Term

We have taken part in Anti-Bullying week from 13th to the 17th November. During this week we completed a workshop with Loudmouth where we all became 'Bully Busters'. We discussed different scenarios of bullying and talked about who you can go to if you need any support or advice. In our classes, we then completed a Now Press Play, which was all about bullying in a school environment and at a fair. We discussed how we can prevent bullying from happening in our lives.

In Science we have started our new topic of Materials and their properties. We researched new vocabulary in a dictionary and then used this to describe materials in our 'feely bag' 

In year 5, we have completed work on Remembrance day and why we celebrate this in our country. We also attended Gornal memorial where we placed a Poppy wreath and paid our respects to the fallen soldiers from our local area. We also found out information about the fallen soldiers and added this information to the Memorial for people to read. 

We made our very own burgers from scratch based on our topic of California. WE LOVED THEM! 

Year 5 took part in a Now Press Play all about the environment. 

In Computing we looked at how we can stay safe online. The children produced comic strips to show different scenarios they may find themselves in and how they can make sure they stay safe. 

In music we have learnt part 1 of the song, Ghost Parade. We competed in classes against each other to see who the next superstar singers might be! We also used a range of instruments to enhance our musical skills.  

We completed a practical session all about Friction. We compared different materials and the speed it took for items to travel down the ramp. There were definitely some unexpected results! 

We worked in small groups to complete Place Value work with numbers up to 1,000,000. 

We worked individually to collect facts all about Malala Yousafzai ready to write a biography. 

Our Year 5 displays ready for the Autumn term. We look forward to seeing lots of work on the boards!
