‘Mad Science’ Assembly

What a fascinating Friday Morning! We really enjoyed carrying out lots of fun and exciting experiments with Turbo Tom! Science is really like magic! We really couldn’t believe our eyes… from water turning into juice, to flying water, to green snotty foam and even a genie in a bottle! Take a look at some of the photographs below:

Separating Mixtures

Year 5 separating mixtures science experiment. We all really enjoyed it!

Safer Internet Day

Different scenarios and what Class 5O would do – Safer Internet Day 2018

Persuasive Airline Leaflets

Year 5 have created their own airlines this week and have produced some persuasive leaflets to advertise them. Perhaps a major airline will hear about the idea of having a trampoline on board and steal the idea!


Safer Internet Day

Year 5 enjoyed completing a range of activities on Safer Internet Day.  We talked through example scenarios and made notes about how we would feel in different situations.  We also thought about actions that would make everyone in that scenario feel happier.  We also watched videos which highlighted the importance of being positive online and staying safe online.

Tesco Sustainability

Year 5 participated in a sustainability trail, learning all about how we make sure we look after the world together.

Speaking Buddies

Pupils in 5L enjoyed discussing how to stay safe online with their Speaking Buddies in 2M.


5L’s Marble Jar Reward

Since September Class 5L have been earning marbles for good behaviour.

As a reward for filling their class marble jar, they were treated to watching the film ‘Boss Baby’ whilst wearing their pyjamas!

Well done 5L! Keep up your excellent behaviour.

Farm to Fork

What w wonderful trip Year 5 had to Tesco for the Farm to Fork trail! The children always find out a lot of interesting facts. Perhaps you could try asking Daley Bear what he learnt.
