Year 5

 

 

Welcome to Year 5 

 

Year 5 is an exciting and challenging year for the children as they are expected to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning. These skills are developed throughout the year during a variety of tasks and lessons and provide the key foundations that prepare the children for the challenges of year 6. In the summer term all children are invited to go on a  residential trip to Low Gillerthwaite in the Ennerdale Valley.  This represents a fantastic opportunity for our children to develop their resilience and further skills that they may not have even discovered yet.

 

Duathlon 11.7.19

Thank you to Chris Wright Sports for organising our Duathlon today  We had to be a little bit cautious on the bends, due to the wet weather that made the grass slippery but we had a brilliant time.  Well done to all our competitors!

World Book Day 2019

 

We've been working on our Greek myth of 'Theseus and the Minotaur' so spent our outdoor time creating labyrinths around the amphitheatre and stream.  We even managed to find a few beasts (or worms) to go in the middle of our mazes!  We finished off a lovely afternoon by joining our reception class and read them some stories.

Reading with reception

Tag Rugby

 

Mr Charters, from Cockermouth School, came in to teach us tag rugby.  We focused on looking for 'spaces not faces' and playing by the rules of; passing sideways or backwards  and running forwards with the ball.  The whole class had an outstanding attitude to this new game and really gave 100%!

Forest School

 

We have been extremely lucky to have the chance to do forest school with Mrs Watkins this half term.  Some weeks have been wet, others windy and others icy cold!  We have so much fun exploring our school outdoor area and learning new skills such as; whittling wood, starting fires and splitting wood.  Every session we had the opportunity to have a 'minty moment' and reflect on our session at the end.  "I loved everything!" was the feedback from all of our class, which is absolutely wonderful to hear!  

Poetry

 

We've had a lovely time in our outdoor area, over the last week, using our senses to inspire poems about our 'home' and reflecting on how lucky we really are!  We were honoured to be greeted with a little robin, warbling in the tree, as we stepped outside.  The children have produced some stunning first drafts with incredible description.  We will be working hard to edit and enhance our work and hope to share our polished poems soon. 

Bridges

The year 5 children had a fantastic time in Design and Technology researching, designing and building bridges.  We spent time looking at different types of bridges, their uses and finding out about some of the world's most famous bridges.  Thank you to all families who sent in materials and helped with building at home.

Time Travel

This term our topic is titled: Time Travel. We will be learning about Queen Victoria, the Industrial Revolution and what life was like for children living during this period in history. We will also be studying the work of William Morris and why we remember Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

 

 

Our Paddle family working together...

The Year 5 children had a wonderful time when they were given the opportunity to read and share books with the Nursery and Reception children. It was lovely to see our Paddle family working together.

New Lanark UNESCO World Heritage site

The Year 5 and 6 children visited the New Lanark UNESCO World Heritage site to learn about the social pioneer, Robert Owen and what life was like for children living during the Victorian times.

Inspired by patterns in nature...

The children began their study of the work of William Morris; they used patterns in nature as inspiration for their own prints.
