Fantastic Families Assembly!

Last Friday we enjoyed a wonderful “Show and tell” assembly to mark the end of our RE topic, “Families”. Each class shared what they had been learning in a creative way, and it was wonderful that so many of our families came to celebrate with us! Thank you to all who came and to all the children and staff for their lovely contributions.


Science and PE Week in Year 5

We have had a fabulous science and PE week. We have done lots of things.

On Tuesday, we did an exercise class with the coaches from Pure Gym. It was exhausting but so much fun at the same time. We then had our UK Military Schools in the afternoon and we did a speed test to check our fitness.

On Wednesday, we did a whole school workout with Mr Lowry and Mr Hignett and all the other teachers and staff. We could feel all of our achy muscles (DOMS) from the day before.

On Thursday we had our usual PE lesson with Mr Hignett and in the afternoon we did science. We look at the bones in our bodies and created our very own skeletons.

Today, we have done Yoga with Mrs Routledge and PE with Miss Waters. We practiced our basket ball skills and passing games.

Such a fun week!

Dot-art Exhibition

Miss Waters and a few of year five have had a wonderful afternoon at the spectacular St. George’s Hall.

Kara, Luke and Rushid went along to the dot-art prize giving ceremony to celebrate their amazing achievements and receive their awards.

Well done to everyone involved.


Bark and Read 14th June 2017

Today Zella came to visit us. She is 4 years old.  Her breed is a lurcher. She is very calm and her story is sad. She was abandoned by her owners with her family who were another dog and their two puppies who are 1 year old.

She was very calm and chilled. We thought she might be a little bit nervous of us, but she seemed happy. She is friendly, she liked to listen to us. She was very well behaved.

Today Anthony brought Lisa the Lurcher to come and meet us. Lisa is about 3 years old and Alexie said her coat was the same colours and pattern as the painted dogs at Chester Zoo!

Lisa was a very chilled dog indeed! She was friendly and very relaxed. She seemed to find our reading very calming because she lay back listening to us, and she nearly fell asleep.


Greek Shields

Today in history, we have been learning all about Ancient Greek Warfare. Can you remember why Ancient Greeks needed both an army and a navy?

We made amazing shields complete with mythical creatures to scare off our enemies.

QR Codes

We used technology in maths this morning. We worked really hard to read timetables and create different questions for the rest of our class.

Using a app we created QR Codes of our questions and to show what we have learnt.

Well done year 5!

Our Heart

Today in science, we looked closely at our heart and the special parts which do amazing jobs to keep us alive.


We used our big heart map to help us label and discover more about each part.
