Year 5 2016 - 2017
Welcome to Year 5
In Year 5 Mrs Harper teaches 5H and Mr Williams teaches 5W. We also have Mrs Pickavance, Mrs Morris, Miss Miller and Mrs Dwan supporting our learning.
21.4.17: We have all had a great first week back after the Easter break. We visited the pinewoods behinf St Luke's church on Tuesday morning and looked at land use, habitats and wildlife in the area. The children also got the chance to develop their sketching skills.
On Wednesday morning, 5W took the short trip to Range High where we were made to feel extremely welcome by Mrs Cunningham (computing teacher) who taught the children how to code using game-maker. The children had great enjoyment creating a computer game and it was lovely to see them helping each other.
On Thursday, we donned our trainers on again and visited the National Trust squirrel reserve. Each class were taken around the squirrel wallk by a NT ranger and learnt lots of facts about our friendly local red squirrel. The squirrel feeders tied in feeding time with our visit which made for great squirrel viewing. I've never seen so many squirrels at one time!
Leading on from our informative morning with the squirrels, we were visited by anther ranger on Fridaymorning. Sally led the children on a hyperlinked powerpoint adventure to save our squirrel. By the end of ther session, the children were experts in squirrel conservation. Well done to all of the children for their fabulous listening, enthusiasm and thoughtful contribution which made the session a great success.
Olivia! What a success, what a triumph. Well done Year 5. The West End is calling. You thoroughly deserve the standing ovations. Pictures will be uploaded to the gallery very soon.
