Year 5 news...

Library Trip

Our library trip was incredible! After walking to Birkenhead Library, (which took a while) we listened to a poet who rapped and recited poems. He even played the drums! It was a great fun!


St George’s Hall Trip

Our trip to Liverpool was amazing! First, we got the train which was really exciting but loud! Then, we saw all sorts of horrible things to do with crime and punishment in the Victorian times. These included a jail cell and torture equipment. After that, we went to the planetarium and watched an incredible show about first moon landing. It was all fantastic!


Well Being Day

On Thursday 24th November, we celebrated ‘Well Being Day’. Year groups carried out various activities throughout the day. Some of us had the opportunity to take part in peer massage- this was very relaxing! Others participated in Lego Therapy, which we loved! One class even had a karaoke session- this made us feel GREAT! Thank you Mrs Porter for our wonderful yoga session. It was a relaxing and lovely day at Mersey Park. We loved coming into school in our comfy slippers!

 


Reading Buddies

Today we got to know our Reading Buddies again. We answered a questionnaire together about our favourite things and then read two lovely peace poems.


5S School Council Vote

We have been voting for our new School Councillor in class. We had to write a short speech and try to persuade our classmates that we are fit for the job! It was a success and we think our new School Councillor will do a great job!


The Sun, Moon and Earth

We spent the first part of our lesson deciding on how the Sun, Earth and Moon moved, then we drew how big we thought they all were.


Mad Hat Day

We have been raising money for our local charity ‘Claire House’. The children were given the opportunity to come to school in a funny hat for just £1. There were lots of prizes given out for the funniest and most wild hats. Mersey Park you are looking fabulous!


Vocabulary Parade

The Vocabulary Parade has been a fun way to celebrate our love of wonderful words and varied vocabulary. Lots of children in KS2 have put lots of effort into making their costumes for the Vocabulary Parade. Can you guess which word each child has dressed up as?

 


Pathfinders

The Year 5 and 6 children have worked so hard on the ‘Pathfinders’ course this week. They have carried out a number of activities with Merseyside Police. These activities have taught them everything from respect to making the right choices. It was both a fun and informative week and the children have thoroughly enjoyed their time with the police.  Take a look at the exciting things they got up to below:


Roman Mosaics

Year 5 have had a lovely time making their own Roman Mosaics. They used actual stone tiles and even had to shape them using scissors before gluing them down ready to grout.
