Year 5 news...
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!
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.
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!
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!
