Year 5 Trip to Hoghton Tower 🏰, by Miss Flynn

Date: 25th Jan 2022 @ 4:23pm

Today, Year 5 visited Hoghton Tower as past of our History topic. Upon arrival, the children were welcomed by experienced tour guides dressed in Tudor clothing! They were then taken around the house including the state bedroom and ballroom. After lunch we got to see the underground passages and dungeons along with our new video about the visit of King James I. We also held our own ceremony to ‘knight’ some of the children during the day. Although the castle was really cold 🥶 we all had a great day! 🏰

Year 5 Trip to Liverpool Museum, by Miss Flynn

Date: 14th Jan 2022 @ 2:54pm

We had a great day at Liverpool Museum today!

We started the day by studying the buildings - focusing on the columns outside the museum and St George's Hall. This tied in with our topic- Ancient Greece.

We then spent the first half of the morning exploring the museum- we particularly enjoyed the mummy room and aquarium!

After that, we took part in a workshop in the Planetarium. We loved learning about the solar system and how telescopes 🔭 work!

Year 5 National Poetry Day 2021, by Miss Adamczewska

Date: 12th Oct 2021 @ 10:08am

National Poetry Day is the annual mass celebration on the first Thursday of October that encourages all to enjoy, discover and share poetry. This year, National Poetry Day takes place on 7 October 2021, and the theme is Choice.

National Poetry Day generates an explosion of activity nationwide, thousands of amazing events across the UK – on doorsteps and at kitchen tables, in gardens and streets, in schools, libraries and public spaces both online and offline – all celebrating poetry’s power to bring people together. 

The Day starts conversations, it encourages love of language – and best of all, it’s open to absolutely everyone to join in, quietly or noisily in rewarding and enjoyable ways. As the artform’s most visible moment, it showcases the ways in which poetry adds value to society.

Here are our wonderfull Year 5's...

Drama with Mr Glen

The GIF(t) of Drama — Interactive Schools

Today Year 5 worked with Mr Glen in the drama study. After we had warmed up, we continued exploring the incredible expedition made by Sir Ernest Shackleton. We have been looking at diary entries, photographs and films of the event. Using these, we recreated scenes and performed them for the rest of the class using sound effects and thought tracking. Next week we will start looking at the scripted elements. Excellent work by all today. Well done year 5

World Book Day 4th March 2021, by Miss Flynn

Date: 3rd Mar 2021 @ 10:07am

World Book Day | World Book Day is a registered charity. Our mission is to  give every child and young person a book of their own.

World Book Day - 4th March 2021

World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. Our mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. We want to see more children with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them. Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

Throughout the day, your child's teacher will upload activities to complete to SchoolSpider however there are also a number of free events being hosted throughout the day.
