Computing

In our computing lesson, we learned how to add QR codes to our non-chronological reports which the reader can then scan. It will then take them to a website for further information! It is very cool!

Music tuition

We are very lucky to receive recorder lessons from Mrs Kendrick every Tuesday. We have been learning about tempo, pitch and notations. Click on our video to see our progress since September!

Poetry

We held our first poetry assembly for the whole school in November where we performed the following poems: I wandered lonely as a cloud by William Wordsworth, The Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll and Leisure by WH Davies. Some of the words were very difficult but we did a great job!

Bridge Building - Futures Fortnight

As part of our work during Futures Fortnight, we have been learning about the different kinds of jobs an engineer could do. We then designed and built our own bridges using card, paper, straws and tape. Which one will be the strongest?

Year 5 had a fantastic day at Bede’s world! We did lots of fun activities and even had an Anglo Saxon battle!

This term we have been investigating forces.

We conducted an investigation to find out which surfaces provided the greatest amount of friction.

The results were very surprising.
