Spring Term

World Book Day

As part of our World Book Day celebrations, we read 'The Day the Crayons Quit.' We took inspiration from the story to write our own letters of complaint. Enjoy looking at the pictures of our work below, click on the image to enlarge our writing. 

Chinese New Year

To celebrate Chinese new year, we made paper lanterns. We found out that 2021 is the year of the ox.

Devices Down Day

As part of our first 'Devices Down Day' the children in school enjoyed practising their culinary skills by decorating some biscuits. They also thoroughly enjoyed eating their efforts!

Fun in the snow!

5S's Craft Club

Children in 5S enjoyed taking part in an after school craft club ran by Mrs Fernihough and Mr Smith. Please enjoy looking at some of our creations below.

Remembrance Day


Year 5 marked Remembrance Day by reflecting on those people affected in our local area. We made a poppy for each soldier who sadly lost their life during the Great War. We took these names from the Lower Gornal memorial. We also created some artwork to mark the event.


Building Bridges

Alongside our work on California, year five have been learning about the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. We spent some time learning about different types of bridges including: beam, arch and suspension bridges. The children worked together in small groups to build each type of bridge. They investigated which bridge had the best design and which had the furthest span. 

Burger Making

Year 5 have had a fantastic time learning about California this half term. Inspired by our topic, we designed our own burger recipe. We then made our very own burgers and tasted them too! We were very lucky to be visited by a special visitor, Chef Nick, who talked to us about his career as a chef and answered lots of our questions.
