BBC Live Lesson

On Monday the 15th of January, Year 5 were extremely lucky to be invited to The Fuse in Partington, to take part in a BBC Live Lesson. The lesson marked the launch of Radio 2’s 500 word story writing competition and was presented by Helen Skelton and Barney Harwood, who the children were particularly excited to see. The lesson gave the children top tips on character motivation, developing a story an different types of story endings. We are looking forward to beginning to plan and write our stories in class in the coming weeks.

Please watch the lesson and let us know what you think.

Decoration Day!

On Friday the 1st December, Class 12 got in the Christmas spirit and enjoyed taking part in the annual decoration day. The children all looked fabulous, wearing their best festive clothes! The children made mini Christmas trees, sparkly baubles with individual photos and candy canes. Lots of fun was had by everyone! Thank you again to all of the parents who came into class to help, your support is greatly appreciated.

Remembrance Sunday.

On Friday 10th November Year 5 participated in an assembly for Remembrance Day. We read out a poem called Why Wear a Poppy? by Don Crawford and sang a song called We Shall Remember. The children were all very respectful and thoughtful about the topic and were able to see how lives are affected by war, violence and discrimination. It was a great opportunity to remind the children to be kind, be tolerant and remember.

They also created a lovely display to commemorate those who’s lives have been affected by war.

Imperial War Museum

On Monday 6th November, the Year 5 pupils went on a trip to the Imperial War Museum. The trip linked very closely to our current World War 2 topic. The children had a brilliant time looking at artefacts and hearing witness accounts. The hands on experience helped for the children to see what life was like for those who were alive during the war.

We throughly enjoyed encrypting and decrypting secret messages using codes that were used in World War 2.

At the end of the Autumn half term, many children in Class 12 attended a KS2 disco. The children put lots of effort into their outfits and everyone looked fantastic. The children all had a wonderful time dancing to their favourite songs.

Visit to Fairway Primary School

The children enjoyed a wonderful day in the Forest School at Fairway Primary School on Wednesday. They thoroughly explored the forest, took part in problem-solving activities, played hide and seek, rolling races, made grass people and learned what dock leaves were for!

Lunchtime was spent picnicking on the field whilst watching Fairway’s fabulous cheerleading team.

The afternoon was rounded off with ice lollies before reflecting on the many successes of the day.

We are now looking forward to hosting Fairway’s visit to Gorse Hill on Wednesday 28th June where we will enjoy Zumba, Art in the style of Frances Lennon and P4C.
