Easter Church service

Today we visited the church for our Easter service. The children all behaved so well. We sang the song “Spring Chicken”.


We’re starting our summer reading challenge. For your child to get a raffle ticket they need to have read 5 times in a week. Please could you mark this in their normal reading record and on their Summer Reading Challenge record as well. Each raffle ticket they get will be entered into a draw at the end of term. There are two Kindles to be won so the more raffle tickets they have the more chances there are to win. Good Luck!

Science Week

Last week, we celebrated Science week. In year 5, we were learning about forces and in particular friction.

The children set up a scientific enquiry to test whether different materials would effect a cars travel down a ramp.

The children asked a question, made a hypothesis, draw a scientific diagram, completed a results table and wrote a conclusion.

They had lots of fun completing the test too!

Science – Parachutes

This week in Science, we have been learning about forces. We have looked at air resistance and how this force helps parachutes. We investigated which size parachute would be best… here are some of the children making theirs.
