Year 5 news...

P4C Water Aid

Year 5 explored the issues of naturally occurring disasters, such as tsunamis and earthquakes, and what we could do to help people who have suffered as a result. 5Y had the Water Aid advert as their stimulus and discussed how we can be more responsible with our water usage.


Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day

On Friday 13th December we wore Christmas jumpers to help raise money for Save the Children. Here are some pictures of the fluffy, funny and colourful jumpers we wore!


Forensic Science

Year 5 were treated to a forensic science day by ‘Think Forensic’. Gill and Sue (who are both ex-police officers) taught us how to solve crimes using fingerprints, fibres from clothes and footprints left on the scene. What a wonderful day!


Football Competition

Year 5 and 6 playing their socks off in the Liverpool Football Club competition.


Anglo Saxon Topic

Year 5 are definitely in the Dark Ages with these Anglo Saxon brooches.


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!
