Year 5

Year 5 worked very hard on their Europe Homework Projects, we have been so impressed with what has been produced!

Year 5 had great fun plotting the route of our sponsored walk and spotting physical and human features using Digimaps.

In our RE lessons we have been learning about love, check out these beautiful poems written by our Year 5 children.

Our Climate Change All Change project has come to an end. We were so impressed by the 3D designs and images the amazing architects from Levitt Bernstein had created from the children’s designs. We are very excited to see more of this work on display in school later in the year, and at the Victoria & Albert museum too!

As part of the the Trafford Singing Festival all our Year 5 children sang beautifully at The Waterside Theatre. Each class sang two songs individually and then a number of songs with the other schools taking part. What an enjoyable and memorable experience!

We had such fun on World Book Day, sharing our favourite books, creating poems and songs about reading and enjoying a range of other activities!

Our recent trip to Jodrell Bank was out of this world!

We have been using Tinkercad (a computer aided design software) to design houses for the future. The children have further developed their ideas from the CCAC sessions earlier this year to create their own houses for the future. We have some budding architects!

More amazing gymnastics in Year 5. Our focus for this session was 'mirroring': the children had to work in pairs to create a routine that showed them copying moves learning in previous sessions. We have some very talented and creative gymnasts!

In Spanish at the moment, we are learning about keeping fit. The children have collected some useful vocabulary, using bilingual dictionaries, and have created a weekly fitness plan.

Today we demonstrated our knowledge of geocentric and heliocentric models of our solar system on the playground. Can you spot the Earth and the Sun on each picture? What is the difference? What do modern humans now believe to be true?

Happy Lunar New Year from Year 5! Some children brought in items from home and told their classmates how they celebrated the new year.

Year 5 created some fantastic book projects for their class homework! Just look at this amazing work!

Coding in Year 5 - Miss Copley taught us how to use our coding skills to create a quiz show about Space on Scratch.

Spanish - 5 Hubble have listened to a story in Spanish. They then sequenced the events in the story before writing some sentences about the main character, in Spanish of course!

Fantastic Friday - children have been learning how to play table tennis. We've had some frantic games of 'round the world'!

We made a solar system that fits in our pocket!

Is the Earth flat or spherical? Year 5 Newton had a whole class debate using theories, facts and evidence from their learning to support their opinions.

On Monday we took a group of 15 children to Sale Leisure Centre to take part in an Aqua Splash festival. The children took part in fun relay races as part of a team whilst improving their swimming skills. Well Done!

Dance. Linking to our Science topic of Space we are creating our own dances using a variety of moves.

Fantastic Friday - Obstacle races followed by planning and delivering a warm up session to the rest of the group.

Stockport Grammar Art Competition. Today we have been planning and producing a a piece of artwork on the subject ‘Portrait’. We could use a variety of medium including paint, pencil crayon, pastels and collage to create our portraits. Our work reflects our own individual personalities and are so varied. 8 lucky children will have their artwork entered into the competition. Well done Year 5, they are all amazing!

Snow Day! We took advantage of the weather and went outside to play, throwing snowballs at our friends and building snowmen. What a great start to the day!

Have a look at some of the fantastic sketches of our friends that we produced last week.

Viking drama! In English, we have read some poems about the Vikings and their raids on the British Isles. The children acted out some of the scenes and had great fun whilst learning about how the Vikings eventually settled here.

All the Year 5 staff would like to say a huge 'Thank you' to everyone for their generous cards and gifts at the end of last term.  We hope you all had a lovely, restful break. Standby for photos showing the positive start we've had to this new term.

As part of our forces topic in science. We made parachutes to test the affects of air resistance. Only one variable was changed in order to make it fair test. The parachutes were dropped off a balcony - it was a lot of fun!

We have been learning about the Lewis chess men that were found on a beach in Uig, Isle of Lewis, Scotland. They dated back to the 12th century and are carved of walrus tusks. It is thought that they were hidden in the sand by Vikings, who planned to return at a later date, but never did. We designed and made replicas out of clay. We even learned how to create celtic knots to decorate them in an authentic fashion.

It’s CHRISTMASSSSSSS! We had such fun at our Christmas Fair, a huge thank you to our AMAZING PTA for all their efforts and giving up their time!

On Friday 1st December we welcomed the ‘Climate Change All Change’ panel, and the architects from Levitt Bernstein, to school to listen to our presentations. Each group talked through the amazing designs they had created for the extreme climate conditions given to them. We were blown away by the incredible ideas each group came up with and the presenting skills displayed. Well done Year 5 - we are very proud of you!

It’s Crazy Hair Day! Check out Year 5’s amazing creations!
