Olympic Week

As it is Olympic week next week, we would love to hear about all the different sports the children take part in and celebrate their successes. We will be having a presentation afternoon as a year group on Wednesday where the children can bring in any certificates, medals or pieces of writing about their sports. We can’t wait to hear about the different sports children do in and outside of school!

As a reminder, it is also sports day next Thursday afternoon which will start at 13:00. Looking forward to seeing you all there.


The Year 5 Team

CAFOD visit

Year 5 were fortunate enough last week to have been visited by some members from CAFOD. They took part in a pilgrimage around the school and then wrote prayers for refugees. Please click on the following link to find out more about what Year 5 got up to, and to see some photos from the day.

Bright Buttons

Bright Buttons

On Monday the 13th of June, seven year fives went to Crookhorn to take part in a learning day (Bright Buttons). Lessons included RE, Poetry, Mathematics, Literacy, DT and Forensic Science. In RE we had a lesson on evaluation, including tasting brands of chocolate and coke. In poetry we discussed how poems are formed and the structure of them, we also discussed the most famous poems. In Mathematics we looked at the art of code breaking and we made our own manual for the code we had made. In Literacy we thought about what we would do if the world was ours and if we made the rules. We had to look at if the rules provided equalness. In DT we made personalised key rings using vices, junior hacksaws and Brasso to polish. We had to select a shape then cut out with the junior hacksaws and then sand them for a perfect edge. Finally, we did Forensic Science and we were the police solving a crime using fingerprint matching, microscopes, chemicals and chromatography. After half an hour of investigation we found the culprit. Overall, everyone enjoyed the day and would love to do it again.
