Welcome to Year 5!

This term our topic is called "Marvellous Machines and Cracking Contraptions!"  It is all out inventions, forces and how things work.

Last term's topic was "Survival: Olive's War"; it was all about World War 2.  Keep checking the webpage for information and photos.

Here are our finished sculptures, based on the work of Henry Moore.  We are very proud of them!
These pictures show the process we went through to produce our sculptures.  We looked at the work of Henry Moore, created some shelter poses of our own, sketched them then made sculptures of our poses/sketches using wire, newspaper and Modroc. We loved this term's art work!

We had a brilliant day at Lyme Park, meeting up with our Link School.  We enjoyed playing "getting to know you" games, den building and just having a good chat!  We have discovered that we have lots in common and have made some lovely new friends!

We can only put pictures on the website of children from our own school - take a look at what we got up to!

Year 5 had a visit from some members of Stockport and District Normandy Veterans Association who told us fascinating stories about their lives and experiences during World War 2. The children asked lots of great questions and were very respectful, thoughtful and sensible during the visit.
We have been estimating, measuring and drawing angles.  We worked really well as a team today to practise our skills.
We have been investigating suitable blackout materials.  We planned and carried out investigations in our groups.  Some of our findings really surprised us!
Our WW2 day was very exciting! Our visitor brought in so many fascinating artefacts and allowed us to really experience what life was like during WW2.   We all loved being dressed up in our WW2 clothing (thank you so much for organising these outfits) and everyone learnt so much during the day. 

As part of PSHE and our new Linking Schools project, we have been exploring ourselves and similarities and differences between ourselves and others.  We played a fun class bingo game to find out more about each other.

In PE we have been creating an evacuee dance; we are very proud of what we've achieved as a team so far.

We have had a great start to the term.  We have been working hard on building relationships and working as effective teams. 

Have a look at some photos of some of the things we have been doing so far.

We have also been thinking a lot about growth minsdet.  Thank you for your fantastic homework. we will enjoy sharing it in class.
