November 2017: Cats Protection visit

A massive thank you to Kirsty and Linda from Cats Protection who came to speak to Year 5 about their work and to fill us with facts about cats. Did you know that cats don't like their tummies tickled! 

We will be using this information for our 'Cat Protection Project'!

October 2017: Fun in the outdoors!

We had a fabulous day orienteering at Stanley Head Outdoor Education Centre. We put our map reading skills to the test and managed to successfully navigate the grounds. We also managed to squeeze in an archery taster session and the 'blindfold trail' where we worked as a team to safely guide our blindfolded partners through an obstacle course. A big thank you to all those who dropped off and picked up, and to Mrs Benton and Mrs Rowe who came with us.

October 2017: Science at Moorside High School

On Wednesday 11th October, Mrs Graham accompanied Year 5 to Moorside High School to take part in a Science session led by Mr Johnson. During the morning pupils were questioned on their knowledge of gases (very impressive!) before creating carbon dioxide, hydrogen and oxygen. Each time they completed their task, they were then required to perform a test to check what they had collected was actually the gas in question. The children were excited by the opportunity to use the resources provided in a Science laboratory and were enthusiastic about their learning. A few shocks were evident from the reactions when performing the tests for hydrogen and oxygen but the children worked sensibly and safely throughout the session. Many thanks to Mr Johnson for providing this opportunity and also to Mr Key and Mrs Greatbatch for their support.

March 2017: Year 5 are awarded 'Master Class' status. 

Year 5 are one of only 46 classes in the whole of England who have met very strict reading criteria to be awarded 'master class' status in the Accelerated Reading program. Pupils have worked hard dedicating their time to choosing books, reading and passing quizzes. There are well over four thousand schools participating in this program so to be one of the the tens of thousand of classes to receive this is a massive achievement! Excellent work Year 5 - you are inspirational! Keep up the amazing work smiley
