Welcome to Year 5
Miss Hoare, Miss Thwaites and Miss Walker would like to welcome you to Year 5. We will be updating the website frequently so watch out for information on what we have been doing.
World Book day saw Year 5 carrying out drama activities linked to our guided reading book Holes.
In the afternoon we looked at the author Jeff Kinney - author of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" books. We had a master class in learning how to draw his characters.
Year 5 learnt about the importance of managing money when staff from Yorkshire Building Society came in to run a workshop. Children learnt about managing a budget and how to save. They had to imagine they were stranded on a Desert island and list what they would take with them.
Neve did some amazing Science Homework. She created the periodic table out of buns!! Very educational and very tasty - Well done!
During the Spring term we studied the classic poem Highwayman. We carried out a role play activity where Bess was being held in a trap in order for the Redcoats to capture him.
Friction proved to be a problem when we had to transfer jelly from one container to another, especially when the jelly was covered in oil and we were using chopsticks (pencils).
Year 5 attended a creative arts day at Newsome High School. They loved the dance studio and using keyboards and computers in the Music Department. There will be another visit in the Summer term.
Year 5 have loved working with Jo Liversidge for Forest School. Vital skills such as working as a team, resilience and problem solving are developed in a fun outdoor environment.
