Our Goose Fair


Today was our WOW day to introduce our exciting new topic. We started off with fairground food treats and then the children designed their own fairground rides and created their own structures. Take a look below at some of the wonderful creations!

Someone Builds a Dream

For the first week and a half back at school, children have been completing activities based around the book 'Someone Builds a Dream'. They have enjoyed lots of team building and setting their goals/dreams and hopes for the future. We have especially enjoyed working as a 'Dream Team'. They have taken part in lots of art, DT, writing, PE and much researching in IT. Please take a look at our photos below to get a taste of what they have been up to!

The Squashed Tomato challenge


Children worked in teams to create a miniature model of a tomato carrier that could help the people of Nepal transport their tomatoes down the hillside. Safe to say, they had lots of fun and enjoyed being designers and engineers.

Welcome to Year 5!

We cannot wait to welcome you into Year 5 and get started with some exciting learning. We have so many wonderful topics planned this year, starting with 'The Goose Fair', followed by 'Space', 'Energy and Forces', 'Ancient Greece', 'Save our Planet' and 'The Circle of Life'
