Year 5 news...

The Greatest Showman

Year 5 have just put on our version of The Greatest Showman and it had to be the GREATEST SHOW EVER!!!

There was superb singing, dazzling dancing and amazing acting throughout. We even had an email from Hugh Jackman to wish us all the best – WOW!! Not only that, but Swetenhams Chemists and Abakan donated some money towards our next school trip – DOUBLE WOW! Also, we are going to take the show on the road to Prenton High School – TRIPLE WOW!

Separating Materials

We had a great time in our Science lesson, working out how we can separate different materials!

Aboriginal Art

In Art, we have been studying the artwork of the Aborigines in Australia. We even created our own artwork by using a cotton bud and lots of different colours. It all required a lot of concentration and delicate painting.


For our Topic homework, we made our very own exploding volcanoes. We had a lot of fun doing it and they really did erupt!

Easter Bonnet Competition

Thank you to everyone who entered our Easter bonnet competition. It was a fantastic idea that was organised by Year 2. We had some really creative hats from children of all year groups.

Fitness Friday

The children thoroughly enjoyed Fitness Friday on 29th March 2019. They started the day with a ‘Wake Up Shake Up’. They then participated in sporting activities throughout the day.

Comic Relief 2019

This year we wore odd socks for Comic Relief and all donated £1. We were even given the opportunity to enter a joke competition for 50p. All money raised was donated to charity. Take a look at some of our funky socks below:

British Science Week

On Thursday the whole school were lucky enough to take part in the Silly Science Workshops as part of British Science Week. It was so exciting, take a look:

Talk For Writing

These videos are from Year 5’s new ‘Talk For Writing’ Literacy lesson. We have been practising retelling the story from our book ‘Wolf Brother’ using only the pictures from our story map.


These are our photos of Year 5 graduating from the University of Liverpool.
