Spring term in year 5.


Trip to Ryton Pools and sleepover at school.


During the Spring term, year 5 will be learning about Space. The children are looking forward to a visit from a planetarium, where they will experience 'Infinity and Beyond'.  (Photos to follow).

Our class novel is 'Cosmic', an exciting story about a boy who finds himself in Space.

We used our Design and Technology skills to make moon buggies that moved! We used the vehicles to test air resistance in our Science lessons. 



On Tuesday 2nd October, Year 5 had an enjoyable WW2 experience at Winchcombe. We boarded a steam train, sang some songs and captured a German spy!

The children learnt how to use a stirrup pump to put out fires. We also experienced what it would have been like in an Air Raid shelter. We all had a fantastic day.

Coventry Cathedral Trip

Year 5 had an enjoyable day visiting Coventry's two cathedrals. We learnt that many different countries donated money to help build the new cathedral. Germany contributed towards the stained glass windows. The Baptism font came from Bethlehem.

The children learnt what it was like in a school during World War II and saw household equipment that was during this time, for example, a mangle and tin baths.
