Summer term

This term in Year 5, we are learning about living things and their habitats. We have started by looking very closely at plants and finding out about how they reproduce. In maths we will be focusing on shape and measures, whilst still continuing to practise our arithmetic skills.

The children need to ensure they have their trainers in school as we have joined with Year 4 to improve our fitness by doing a mile run (that’s 8 times round the school field!) three times a week. Hopefully over the next few weeks we will all improve our fitness.

Matthew and Charlotte from 5H and Phoebe and Kaden from 5B had some exciting news this week. They won the competition to visit London in July with Mrs Hoyle as part of the British Values curriculum. We are all looking forward to hearing all about the trip and seeing some of the photographs of the different places they visit.

Safety week

Today we had a water safety assembly. We learnt what to do if we see a human or animal in the water and what we can do to keep ourselves safe around the rivers and canals.

Ancient Greece

Welcome to Ancient Greece, Gildersome style. On our theme day we acted out a Greek myth, drew picture of mythical creatures, ate traditional Greek food and made laurel garlands.
