5E Science









Out of this world!

In science we have been finding out all about space. The children used various sized balls to explain why we have day and night.

What do we want to know about space?


Armistice Day 2020

5E have worked together to produce a wreath to remember and thank all those who have given their lives to help. 


Times Table Champion

Well done to Jemima for completing the Championship Level this week. One hundred mixed questions in three minutes - a fantastic achievement!




We have been busy making our own Islamic Calendar with Miss Lunn.



Jungle Fever!



Arriving at school after the Easter Holidays 5E were greeted by TV celebrities Ant and Dec (aka Mr Curtis and Mrs Eltherington) who introduced them to our new topic - Jungle Fever!


There was great excitement as we took on the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here theme! The children were faced with a number of challenges, which they had to complete to collect stars for their camp. The activities included taking part in the Bush Tucker Trials and included tasting delights such as Parrot Poo, Monkey Bogeys and Fish Eyes! We had mixed reactions to our jungle menu!


5E were asked to face their fears by diving into boxes filled with unknown, slimy and mysterious contents, in order to retrieve their reward stars- this required bravery and courage!


We developed our creative and sewing skills making jungle garlands out of crepe paper and leaf crowns to make us feel like kings and queens of the jungle.


The fun continued after break where we all enjoyed the sunshine and took part in our very own Cyclone on the school field. We had to work together as part of a team to win more precious stars!


We had a wonderful day launching our new topic and feel very excited to learn more about The Amazon.
