Year 5

Building Structures

October

To kick start our year, Zebra class made the tallest structure they could, out of spaghetti and marshmallows. This enabled us to work on our team building skills and was a lot of fun!

Year 5

Maths

September

The children have been using the maths resources to create different numbers in our place value lessons. Even in year 5 it is important to use the resources available. These will always be accessible to the children in their lessons (should they need them).

 

Year 5

West Stow

September

Year 5 immersed themselves in their Ancient Britain topic with a visit to West Stow. We had an exciting morning exploring some reconstructed homes of Anglo-Saxons and in the afternoon, observed some ancient artefacts in the museum.

Shakespeare Rocks

Congratulations to Year 5 and 6 on your fantastic production of ‘Shakespeare Rocks.’ This fresh, funny and up to date look at the life and times of William Shakespeare, gave us a cast of hilarious historical characters, amusing glimpses into some of his works and an understanding of how he came ‘to be!’ The singing was full of energy and the acting superb throughout. Special mentions must go to the wonderful soloists who performed so confidently in both performances. An enormous thank you to everyone who played a part in making this fantastic production come to life – what a wonderful way to end our summer term.

Spread the word…Shakespeare didn’t just write….he rocked!
