Welcome to 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?’ in the ‘Volcanoes and Earthquakes’ topic. Everyone has made a great start to their understanding of volcanoes with their fantastic art.

 

 

Crosby Beach 2019

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.

The Chill Factor

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

Mountain Research

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!

Debbie Abrahams

On Friday 16th November,Debbie Abrahams, M.P for Saddleworth and Oldham East, came to speak to Year 5. She spoke on a range of issues such as how she became a member of parliament, the work this role involves and what a ‘democratic parliament’ means. 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.
