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!

Yr 5 Bark and Read 17.5.17

We met Gremlin today, at first because she is big some of us were a bit surprised but we found our she was very friendly.

Gremlin liked strokes and belly rubs! She was so calm when some of the girls were reading to her that she feel asleep!

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.

Bark and Read

Some more children from Year 5 had a chance to read to a dog from Merseyside Dogs Home today.

Pete is a Lurcher and is a very gentle dog. He certainly seemed to be enjoying hearing the stories, and seems to be listening very well. He also liked having some love and attention in the sun in our garden!

Bark and Read

Today, we were visited by a dog called Pete. He was Lurcher from Merseyside Dogs Home.

We got to read our books to him and ask questions to the helped who brought him in to us.

Alexie read a poetry book and Pete really loved it!

He loved the sunshine out in our secret garden

The Cyclops

This week, we have been continuing our adventures with Odysseus and have read all about his run in with a cyclops.

We decided to turn the chapter into a play script.

Year 5 worked so hard to include all of the features of the genre and the performances were excellent!

Creating Model Lungs

In science this week we have been looking at the role of the lungs and how they work. We really enjoyed creating model ones out of cups and balloon.

Who can tell me what part of the body was represented by the straw, balloon, cup and cling film?
