Year 5

Tuesday 6th February 2018

Today we had our IT day. We had to design a plan for a leaflet encouraging parents to take their children to Warwick Castle. We used ipads to research and Popplet to plan the leaflet. We used book creator to make the leaflet. Here are some photos:



Recently, Year 5 children tested their skills at making a bow and arrow during a special Design & Technology day in class. Have a look at Sasmitha, Harry and Kaitlyn's!



Just before Christmas, Year 5 visited residents in the local care home Poppy Court to sing some carols for them and bring a little festive cheer! Thank you to Mrs Jackson for organising the event, it was really well received!



Year 5 have been taking part in some workshops this term linked to British Values.  In the first workshop, the children thought about what values are, before focusing on the values of respect and tolerance.  The children explored these values via role play and the context of refugees.  

Our second workshop was about the value of 'justice'. After an introduction to the structure of the British legal system, the children all took part in a mock court case where they had to decide if the defendant was guilty of theft.  The children all had many interesting questions about the legal system - we definitely have some future lawyers in Year 5! Have a look at our  photos:


Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a brilliant overnight trip to London just before half term. No doubt they will have told you all about it on their return! Have a look at a few photos of what they got up to:

Our school choir took part in a special event at Symphony Hall on 23rd June. The event was a huge success, very well attended and enjoyed by all those who participated and who went to watch.

  Summer Term - week commencing 27th April, we made the most of the spells of sunny weather we had, to go and explore the school's wildlife area! With some makeshift nets and wellies on, we did find a few little inhabitants... Have a look at our pictures below.
Rainforest Roadshow.

Spring 2015

This term Beech and Oak classes have been finding out all about the rainforests.  To begin our theme we went on a trip to Twycross Zoo.  We took part in a workshop to find out all about the animals that can be found in the different layers of the rainforest.  We also met and touched some creatures you would find in a rainforest, including Bonnie the tortoise.

We met lots of other animals during the day from all over the world including snow leopards, penguins, gorillas, chimpanzees, meerkats and elephants.  Even though it was very cold we had a brilliant day! Here are some photos:
