The Carol Service which was led by Year 5, on the last day of term, was a truly memorable event. There was so much talent on display as the class performed the story of ‘The Little Match Girl’s Christmas’ and linked together all the elements of the service-the outstanding performances by the band, choir and woodwind group, the prayers and the presentation of the posada to the bishop.
The class have produced some outstanding work from their research of mountains. They chose which mountain to research and how to present their information, clearly dedicating much time and effort into the research at home. In class, the children presented their information, showing excellent communication skills and knowledge. Amazing work, Year 5!
The Year 5 children have made an excellent start to the year and are looking forward to the challenges ahead. This term, they will think about the question ‘What makes the Earth Angry?’ To answer this question, they will be learning about mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes.
The science topic of Materials has captured the children’s curiosity and prompted lots of questions.
Year 5 had an excellent day on Crosby Beach, where they learnt about coastal features, Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’, sea life and wind power. The day was made even better with the beautiful sunny weather.

Everyone had lots of fun on our class visit to the Chill Factore. The morning was spent learning team building and survival skills before venturing into the snow park where the class worked together to build an igloo and find hidden items beneath the snow. To finish the day, much fun was had travelling down the slopes in various ways
Over half term, the children were given the task of researching mountains. I am so impressed at the hard work and effort the children put into their learning and the variety of ways their findings were presented. Here are just a few of the examples.Well done, Year 5!
On Friday 16th November,Debbie Abrahams, M.P for Saddleworth and Oldham East, came to speak to Year 5.

In addition, she informed the class of the UNICEF ‘Outright’ campaign which promotes the rights of children all over the world, to clean air. Debbie’s talk prompted the class to consider a range of issues and ask many thoughtful questions.
The children are developing their communication and reasoning skills, by working in groups to solve maths problems.
On December 21st, Year 5 led the carol service in church. The children shared information about Christmas traditions around the world, recited poems and acted out the story of the first Christmas. They also performed an alternative version of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’.
